Two thousand seasons is predicated on the fulfillment of one of the social functions of literature: the visionary reconstruction of the past for the purposes of social direction. In Armah's work there is no ambivalence of intent, nor of historical reconstruction. 'Ayi Kwei Armah asserts a past whose social philosophy was a natural egalitarianism... The actions of his protagonists are aimed at the retrieval of the past, but again Armah insists that the past is not a nostalgic sentimental one. It is presented as a state embodying rational ideal.'
