Abstract

Colonialism is a practice of the powerful over the less powerful. It is the policy of a country seeking to extend or retain it's authority over other people or territories, generally with the aim of economic exploitation, political domination and civilizing mission. Colonialism is strongly associated with the European colonial period starting with the fifteenth century when some European states established colonizing empires. Colonialism began much earlier with the discovery of America. It was a big issue during Shakespeare's time. The opening up of new frontiers and new land being discovered stimulated European information. Exploration of new geographical spaces and control of those lands by the explorers is basically what we know by colonialism. In this paper I have analyzed The Tempest by William Shakespeare and Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe to show how these writers have imposed their Eurocentric attitude.

Key Words
