Abstract

My project is, in briefest terms, an examination of Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka as colonial and post-colonial Nigerian writers. Through my reading and analysis, I am endeavoring to gain an understanding of how both writers convey the irrevocable consequences of colonialism through their literature and how they represent various aspects of the hybrid identity that British influence on their culture has created.
