dc.description.abstract Ecocriticism is a bridge-building theory; one which connects the physical environment with literature. It is the ideological point of convergence between literature and the environment, an embodiment of the interdisciplinary nature of literature, and the anchor on which the Niger Delta literary discourse is hinged. The Niger Delta region is one region that is richly endowed with both natural and human resources. But some of the questions which many literary scholars in and outside the region have been asking are: to what extent has these deposits influenced the socio-economic developments in this part of the country? Why are some of the persistent crises in the region? Thus, the study undertakes an assessment of the forms of crises occasioned by oil exploration activities in the region with focus on Kaine Agary’s fictional work, Yellow-Yellow; working within the context of postcolonial theory and the African ecocritical approach, an attempt has been made at offering measures which if adopted, would address these issues limiting the region. en_US
