A LIAISON OF IDENTITY CRISIS WITH COLONIAL INVASION AS PERPETUATED IN POST-COLONIAL LITERATURE
Keywords:Postcolonial, Colonialism, Psychology, Indigenous
The evident connotation of the term post-colonial is that it attributes to an era coming after the end of colonialism. The remnants of colonialism can still be perceived in the postcolonial period, for colonialism unleashed an immense wound on the psychology, culture and identity of the once conquered people. This congregation of completely diverse cultures in the colonial period led to a great identity crisis in the postcolonial age. The contemporary situation of the once colonized people is an amalgamation of cross-cultural influences, mingled, patch-worked, and stratified upon one another. Hence, the postcolonial era has developed into a combat zone where the indigenous and the colonizer identify fight with each other to retrieve their allocated share in the novel cultural space.
