Amende is a tale based on a dual process of repair: one by Nature and the other by human beings. From the outset, the title and the subtitle suggest us this two-fold interpretation. Amende, the name of the young protagonist, is drawn from the stream water, as his dying mother reveals to Etusi, the old woman who later became both mother and father to him. The word “Amende” equally echoes back to the English verb “to amend”, which means “to remediate”, “to reform” and “to rectify”.
