In this discourse I will contend that Ayi Kwei Armah’s language in his first novel, The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born is deliberately crafted to sound very vulgar for a purpose. The coarse language is used as an electroconvulsive tool to deliberately shock the reader to draw his attention to the decadence and corrupt behaviours Armah exposes and condemns in the novel. In other words, it is for a therapeutic purpose. Consequently, I will posit that Armah uses form to complement content in this novel.
