Abstract: Different linguistic groups of the world determine the effectiveness and influence of their tongues and the studying about those speakers in a society will disclose their opinion of their own language and their reaction to other linguistic groups. One can trace the advancement and progression of a language through the way, the individuals interconnect with one another and with surrounding communities. This paper talks about the African writers who have contributed to recreating African uniqueness that promotes the awareness of a cultural and ethnic movement in the literary Renaissance of Africa. Chinua Achebe is one of the most well-known and renowned African literary figure. He has wrestled with the impact of hybridity, decolonisation, etymological, and movement during the postcolonial era in his novels. Achebe’s attempt is to recreate the identity of his community. In the discussion of his works, the personal views and thoughts on identity and the others views on this particular matter as a postcolonial novelist is dealt. One can find it from his perspective in his stories, interviews and articles. The theme of post colonialism and its link with identity is briefed in this paper. How Achebe observes and views the identity of Igbo community on a personal level and the chief components that have an effect on identity like colonialism, hybridity, language and cultural change are briefly discussed through his works.
Keywords: decolonisation, colonialism, hybridity, oeuvre, canon, longue durée, Igbo, Creole, leitmotif, jargon, polyglot.
