Variations or difference of opinions in postcolonial writings: A study through the writings of two contemporary Young african poetesses
Keywords:Post colonialism, Colonialism, Vision, Independence, Brutality
The literature and art produced in postcolonial countries after independence has become the object of “Postcolonial studies”. The writings produced not often run on the same vein. Of course, the Independence or the freedom of their nation forms the common subject of these writers. But there are variations or difference of opinions in their writings, even among the contemporary writers. And coming to women writers, some wants to ferociously attack the colonisers, for their shameful act (sexual desires), that is still alive among the black women. Here I am to give a postcolonial study to the poems of two young lady writers, who published their poem in 2006. One is Poetess Julia Lithebe and the other is Neo Mvubu. Julia Lithebe hails her country for they had got their independence. She feels that the freedom they have got could not be compared to any other colonial countries. She compares her nation’s independence to the sunshine, and that of the other colonial countries to a candle’s light. On the contrary, Mvubu still laments over her country. She does not feel that it is a real Independence. Still their women are betrayed and the independent nation is observing it idle, claiming that they are in an Independent nation. Thus, though, the independence or freedom is common, there are variations in writings.
