Abstract

This study is mainly devoted to approaching Frantz Fanon's influential text, The Wretched of the Earth, to explain how it is considered as a foremost representative of the post-colonial texts. This study concentrates on Fanon's consideration of the role of violence as an inevitable means of resistance in the colonial context. For Fanon, the colonized people's use of violence is a natural reaction to the colonizer's violence, and it is the most effective strategy of resistance that compels the colonial authority to negotiate and give the chance to the colonized to speak. This study highlights Fanon's call for organizing and teaching the spontaneous sectors of the resisting people to bring the people's struggle to success.
