Keywords:Hybridity, Imperialism, Intercultural Gap, Multiculturalism
This study delves into the theme of hybridity in Chinua Achebe's "Dead Men's Path," exploring the intricacies of cultural struggle depicted in the narrative. Through archival investigation and a comprehensive review of scholarly articles across various platforms, the research adopts a multifaceted approach to unravel the layers of hybridity in the text. "Dead Men's Path" argues against interfering with others' faith, emphasizing the potential harmful repercussions and portraying a significant struggle arising from such interference. The study also sheds light on the overlooked aspect of shifting myths during the process of development, urging the importance of respecting diverse beliefs without disparaging any religion. The findings reveal significant contributors to hybridity in the narrative, including cultural differences, the impact of modernization, traditional aspects, demoralizing beliefs, and resultant cultural conflicts. This exploration extends beyond a mere analysis of hybridity, offering insights into broader cultural dynamics and the repercussions of clashing beliefs.
