Colonialism and Ecology: A Postcolonial Ecocriticism of Chinua Achebes Trilogy

Amadou Danlami

Colonialism had a lot of effects on Africa. One of the aspects in which colonialism and its accompanying economic, cultural and political expansion left a mark on the continent is with regards to ecological considerations. It is against this backdrop that this paper entitled Postcolonial Ecological Setup in Chinua Achebe’s Novels examines the manner in which the Nigerian author presents the relationship between colonialism and environmental stakes in his trilogy Things Fall Apart, No Longer at Ease and Arrow of God. The research question that guides the work is: how does Chinua Achebe represent the link between colonialism and the ecology The hypothesis is based on the premise that Chinua Achebe projects a colonial environment that is suffering from the effects of colonialism. Postcolonial Ecocriticism as outlined by Graham Huggan and Helen Tiffin constitutes the theoretical framework. The work that is divided into two parts came out with the conclusion that through his trilogy Chinua Achebe depicts colonialism as doing much to the African ecosystem.
