ABSTRACT

This research topic – Marxism in Festus Iyayi’s Violence and Ngugi wa Thiongo’s Devil on the Cross – explores the representation of Marxism in African fictions. Almost all African nations have slipped the noose of colonialism; this has influenced African leaders who continually perpetrate the principles and system of self interest of their former colonial masters. In this case, African literature/fiction has been reflecting this neo colonial issue with the aim of proffering solution to how to curb the oppression unleashed on the majority of the less privileged by the present socio-economic system of African nations. Thus, the aim of this work is to carry out a Marxist analysis of Post colonial (contemporary) African fictions, by focusing on Festus Iyayi’s Violence and Ngugi wa Thiongo’s Devil on the Cross in order to reveal the way the less privilege are oppressed and exploited in a capitalist and neo colonial nations.
