Présentation
This study endeavours to bring a fresh insight into the role of literature in the global campaign against environmental degradation. It examines how human culture impacts the natural environment in Henry Ole Kulet’s novels : Vanishing Herds and The Hunter. The study engaged the critical tools of postcolonial ecocriticism in the analysis of the author’s conceptualization of nature, the relationship between colonialism and ecology, and the impact of culture on how characters’ experience, perceive, and relate to nature. The study employs a qualitative research methodology based on close textual reading of the selected primary texts as the principal means of data collection and analysis. The collection of secondary data for the study involves a meticulous library research for relevant books, scholarly journals, dissertations, essays, and newspaper articles from both print and the internet.
