A Study of the Compendium of Post-Colonial African Literature with its Anthological Relation to the Terms ‘Colonised’, ‘Colonists’ and ‘Colonisation’

Hashim Khan, Khalid Azim Khan, Muhammad Umer.


This study attempts to examine the post-colonial African literature’s position in the modern time in terms of its relation and correlation with the exposure of colonial history and its legacy in present. It aims to analyse post- colonial African literature’s response to the (former) colonisers. It investigates its role and capacity in exposing the loss and suffering during the colonial past and its aftermath in contemporary African societies. The study examines the notable works of some key figures of African literature that are considered the mouthpiece of Africa. The analysis comprises the historical background and the contemporary appeal of the works of those African writers who pioneered the post-colonial African literature. The study tries to assess post-colonial African writers’ contribution in highlighting the values, traditions, beliefs and the unique status of African ways of life. It tries to throw light on their contribution in attaining the world attention in the contemporary environment of globalisation, digitalisation and rapid advancement in all walks of life.

Key words: Africa and African Literature, Colonialism, Post-Colonialism
