There is never enough. Even though much has been said about post-colonial studies and research has been carried out in this extensive field, a final word on this issue has not been uttered and, I gather, it will not be pronounced soon either, as it is solely a question of human nature dwelling over those concerns that define our identity and constitute, ultimately, who we were, are or want to be. Consequently, the present analysis is based on Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad and Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe and the intention of the present work is to cut across both texts with a Deconstructive view to comment on relevant sections in the texts and explore how the texts enter in a dialogic relation that has bound them together for a long time by now.
