Characterization in F. NYAMNJOH’s the Disillusioned African and Married but Available



The main purpose of this analysis is to study characterization in the two selected novels written by F. Nyamnjoh: The Disillusioned African and Married But Available. The analysis of characters through literary techniques where Davis’ PAIRS and Fowler’s Componential Approach were used, led to successful results. The main characters were given priority. Additional information provided through a componential analysis of the minor characters was also part of the research. The reason why the researcher takes on this subject is that he found no papers dealing with characterization jointly using PAIRS and componential analysis on F. Nyamnjoh’s works.

Keywords: Characterization, The disillusioned African (TDA), Married But Available (MBA), PAIRS, Componential Analysis.
