dc.description.abstract The aim of this study is to explore HP Maredi's three selected dramas in order to understand his literary practice.These are Mowang wa Matuba , Mo go fetileng kgomo and Lapa ke mosadi. Through his writings one can sense that Maredi wants black people to be aware of their historical origins. He also wants to pass down native customs and traditions to future generations. The whole study discusses the following : &#9632;different perceptions Africans and Westerners hold with regard to depletion of wild animals and the smoking of dagga. &#9632;institutions and activities in the Northern Sotho culture which Maredi considers socially essential. &#9632;portrayal of characters through their relations to, and interactions with their physical and social environments. &#9632;recurrence and reversal as the elements that produce rhythm in drama. &#9632;conclusion and the recapitulation of this study. en
