Abstract

The study is based on “The Thing Around Your Neck”, a short story collection by a Nigerian-American writer, ChimamandaNgozi Adichie. The work analyses “The Thing Around Your Neck” as a diasporic writing while examining the immigrant as being caught in the conflict between two cultures. It explores few of the consequences of migration while studying the immigrant feelings in detail. The postcolonial theory has been used in this analysis since diaspora, immigration and other factors related to these are significant elements of postcolonial theory.
