Download Paper

Abstract

Chinua Achebe is one of the most imperative African writers. He is best known for his novel Things Fall Apart (1958). He is also considered as one of the remarkable and high ranking African authors due to his revolutionary work in post-colonial literature and his politically-conscious writing that offered the world with the view of colonial understanding from the perception of the colonized. This research paper emphasizes on comparative study of the first and the last Achebe’s novels, namely Things Fall Apart and Anthills of the Savannah. Let’s try to examine the author’s inspiration for crafting stories that talks about the drastic changes took place in African societies persuaded by colonization. Similarly, the paper explores the narrative techniques Achebe employed in his writing to appropriate English language for the purpose of challenging the dominant image of Africa, which was represented in colonial discourse as the continent of savage. Further, the paper tackles the elements of Igbo oral poetic tradition that Achebe threads his narratives and the major role he ascribe to writers (storytellers) as social critics, educators of the common people and preservers of African history and culture in post-independence period.

Key Words

Post-colonial literature, Anthills of the Savannah, Things Fall Apart,, colonization, narrative techniques, role of a woman.
