Authors Comparative Survey of Colonialism in Achebe and Pinter’s Works

  Saeid Rahimipour - Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics and Literature, Farhangian University, Ilam, Iran.


Colonialism has been practiced by many countries in the last centuries or so. The kind of relationship between the colonizers and colonized has had mutual effects on the culture, identity, and many more aspects of the two countries. This paper deals with the concept of colonialism from both inner and outer views regarding Harold Pinter’s Caretaker and Chinua Achebe s No Longer at Ease with some references to Bhabhi s ideas respectively. Basing its method on content and text analysis, it reveals that the kind of colonialism going on regarding human attitudes, identity, and individual independence between Nigeria and England which is indicated by Achebe on the one hand as an example of outer colonialism, may be the inspiration for a paragon of inner colonialism in England portrayed in Pinter’s work on the other hand. The novelty of the paper’s illustration of the theme would be promising for further analysis and search.
