In Cry the Beloved Country, what is the difference between Absalom and Matthew's verdicts?
To me, "Cry the beloved country" is the priests mourning Arthur Jarvis' death, but also mourning what the country has become as a whole. The broken cultures in tribes and the evil things they do because of it and a good man dying for no reason. There's corruption everywhere and therefore the country is mourned as a whole. Industry is tearing apart Africa's deeply rooted cultures and changing into something it's not. Something foreign and different. It is becoming corrupted. There is not much the natives of the land can do to stop this change. The only thing they can do is mourn the fact that they are helpless in the aid of their country's natural and original restoration.
