MetadataShow full item record
This paper analyses William Shakespeare‘s The Tempest and Aphra Behn‘s Oroonoko in the context of Postcolonialism. It is an attempt to analyze issues such as subjugation, dominance and language in relation to power. It also discusses the complex relationship that exists between the master and slave. The two texts have dealt with each issue in its own way. Frantz Fanon‘s Black Skin White Mask , Michel Foucault‘s The Archaeology of knowledge, Edward Said‘s "Orientalism" have been used to interpret the text from Postcolonial perspective. Apart from these texts as primary sources , journals, articles and other reference books have been used as secondary sources.
