Victimisation and otherisation in Cameroon Anglophone literature A Study of Selected Authors from the 1980s to Present

1. Abstract

Literary works notoriously reflect the space and time of their production. In the case of Cameroon, the colonial legacy that set a divide between English Speaking and French Speaking communities has fostered two distinct, sometimes conflicting identities. The paper, therefore, attempts a sentiment analysis of Cameroon Anglophone discontent through victimisation and otherisation in four plays and three novels distributed over 40 years of post-independence.
