This article seeks to analyse cultural devotion as it is portrayed in J.C. Buthelezi’s novel, Kushaywa Edonsayo. It intends to pull together
some examples of how cultural devotion is portrayed in this isiZulu novel. It will firstly evaluate cultural conflicts that are demonstrated by characters. It will further explore cultural commitments among individuals in the society created by the novelist, and as applicable to real life society. The main subheadings in this discourse are: culture conflict and cultural commitment. The concept of culture will be defined as part of the introductory section of the article. Again, a concluding section will be included towards the end of the discourse, where the summary, observations and recommendations are provided. The reason this study is conducted is the intensive illustration of cultural devotion in the novel under consideration. It is also the fact that not much has been done on this topic on the isiZulu novel, in particular, and isiZulu literature in general. The revelation of how Buthelezi handles this aspect will add value to the study of isiZulu and, even, African literature.
