A Postcolonial Ecofeminist Comparative Analysis Of War Fiction: The Case Of Arundhati Roy’s The God Of Small Things And Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half Of A Yellow Sun

ABSTRACT

The main focus of the study was to comparatively analyse The God of Small Things (1997) by Arundhati Roy and Half of a Yellow Sun (2006) by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie from a postcolonial ecofeminist perspective. Postcolonialism focuses on issues pertaining to power, culture, and religion in relation to humanity, whilst ecofeminism explores the links between the environment and women, connecting women to the epistemological understanding of nature. The research aimed at exploring the plight of women and the environment in a wartime postcolonial era through the literary lens. The application of postcolonialism and ecofeminism to the analysis of the texts necessitated the consideration and inclusion of themes such as; hybridity, gender trauma, subjugation, relationships and beliefs. The study is a desktop qualitative research and it employed content analysis in the interpretation and analysis of the two novels.
