Theme of double yoke in the select Novels of Buchi Emecheta


Author(s): Divya S Patel

Abstract:
This research paper examines the theme of double yoke in two selected novels of African feminist writer Buchi Emecheta. Double Yoke and Kehinde novels contain the theme ‘double yoke’ means there are hybrid cultural effects on woman characters and here the theme fits in like sugar mixed with milk, as both characters such as Nko (Protagonist of the novel Double Yoke) and Kehinde (Protagonist of the novel Kehinde) are torn between old tradition and new modernity in such a way that they keep both in balance and establish a distinct self-identity of their own in the orthodox traditional society. Emecheta depicts educated women who have self-awakening and desires to achieve their emancipation from conventional Igbo society of Nigeria. Women have to endured discrimination and fight against the orthodox society. Through this research paper, I want to highlight that Emecheta portrays stubborn women and they want to achieve their self-identity. For that women rebel against all odds and never give up their fight against inequality in the traditional society. In both these novels, the author shows women who do not lose courage against all bad situations and achieve emancipation by fulfilling their- self-desires.
