  1. In Death and the King's Horseman, written by Wole Soyinka, Mr. Pilkings causes huge controversy for Elesin and the people of his town. Amusa is sent to arrest Elesin, "You know me, I no like trouble but duty is duty. I am here to arrest Elesin for criminal intent..." (28-29). Since Mr. Pilkings does not understand the culture of Elesin and his people he arrests Elesin and causes Elesin's son to commit suicide. Since Mr. Pilkings did not try to understand the culture of Elesin he caused not only one but two suicides and caused chaos in the town.
