Criminology and African Literature: A Didactic Approach

The paper in question looks at how criminological theory is reflected in the writing of African authors. I make an effort to demonstrate how the authors' perceptions of their society affect how they portray the issue of crime. A reading of the books "Petals of Blood" by Ngugi wa Thiongo, "No Longer at Ease" by Chinua Achebe, "Money Galore" by Amu Djoleto, and "The Beautyful ones are not yet born" by Ayi Kwei Armah from the perspective of criminology. "How can African literature reposition the society from crime?" is the question. Due to the findings of this study, both criminologists and creative authors should take criminology seriously.

KEYWORDS: crime, corruption, imperialism, justice, psychological, cognitive.
