Identity is an essential existential constituent of the reality of existents.Inthe period of colonialism there developed self understood African cultural identity with two dimension: one related to the African to his/her fellows, the other to Europeans. Joyce Cary's colonialist accounts of African history from a European point of view is reflected through an analysis of pre-colonial Africa, British interaction with Africa and the consequent exploitation, African nationalism, independence and the subsequent disillusionment with independence. However, while focusing on Europe, cary does not hesitate to depict the Yoruba historical perspective. In addition to references to Yoruba history, Cary examines overt resistance to imperialism. Cary's novels calls up imperial preconceptions to underline their foolishness and the foolishness of a Europe that does not see a humanized colonies and its colonies' abilities.
