Abstract

Colonialism brings many effects toward people’s life, especially those who have ever become the colonized. One of some psychological effects that are often experienced by the colonized is double consciousness. In V.S. Naipaul’s A House for Mr. Biswas, double consciousness is experienced by the main character named Mr. Biswas. This thesis aims to analyze Mr. Biswas’ double consciousness as an Indian diaspora in Trinidad using double consciousness theory by Homi K. Bhabha. This analysis finds that Mr. Biswas’ double consciousness is caused by indentured labor that deals with displacement or separation toward the colonized from their motherland. As the result, the colonized who experience this double consciousness suffer from the confusing sense about their authentic identity.
