The content of modern African Literature in colonial languages was, by and large, determined by the nature of the political events before, during and after colonialism. In Ethiopia, however, the main themes of fiction were decided by issues pertaining to Western civilisation and the best ways of adapting it to Ethiopian conditions. The thesis examines the theme of progress through close study of the 'missionaries' of change, namely, the intellectual characters in Ethiopian novels. It takes four representative novels published between 1930 and 1974 as primary sources for the study. Other important novels related with our topic are briefly discussed in Chapter 1 and 2. The rest of the works which have thematic connections with the intellectual stratum are listed in the bibliography.
