  • No Witchcraft for Sale by Doris Lessing Audrey Ivey 1st period Mrs. Hindsley 5/1/2018
  • This is Gideon.   He works for the  Farquars, a wealthy  British family who lives in Zimbabwe. He is their cook and is well loved by the family. He heals Teddy's eyes with a special root when a snake Spits in them.
  • Gideon was close to Teddy, who he called "little yellow head." One day while Teddy was on his scooter, a snake spat into his eyes. Gideon   rushed into the bush and came back with a root, which he chewed and put into Teddy's eyes. Then Teddy's  eyes fully recovered.
  • People started talking about how Teddy's eyes had been healed. A doctor came to see about this root that had healed the boy's eyes. Gideon was mad because it was something that was part of his culture and he didn't  want to give it away.
  • Gideon reluctantly shows them the root. After that, the  scientist goes home and things are tense between Gideon and the family for a while, but they eventually return to normal. 
  • The theme of the story is   the culture clash between white settlers and native Africans, and how the  family wanted to sell the root for their own benefit with no regard as to how that might affect Gideon.  I think Gideon was absolutely right to be offended.
