Abstract

Although the postcolonial reading of Chinua Achebe’s Arrow of God has been dissected by various points of view, they have failed to use post-colonial writers like Frantz Fanon to examine how far Achebe and Fanon meet and differ in their analysis of colonialism. The researcher will analyze how colonialism destroys the colonized culture, language, education, law, psyche and religion leading to their mimicry, disorientation and rootlessness. Overall, Arrow of God will be analyzed in the light of Fanon’s Black Skin, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth written in 1952 and 1961 respectively.
