Abstract

Athol Fugard's "Master Harold" . . . and the Boys depicts the colonial relationship between the Other and the colonizer, the black and the white. This paper looks at their colonial relationship from a new perspective and tries to investigate how the two main active characters—Sam, the Other and Hally, the colonizer—interact in the Third Space and follow the 'colonial mimicry strategy' proposed by Homi. K. Bhabha. In addition this paper tries to scrutinize why and how these characters lead the colonial relationship, which is constructed upon a mutually beneficial interaction, to its termination and how and why they make a world full of collisions out of their mutually constructed relationship.
