Abstract: The aim of this paper is to highlight that Post-Colonial writers in English novels pay more attention on common themes such as emigration, independence struggles, allegiance, national identity, and childhood. This paper speaks about the heart of the darkness by joseph Conrad and a passage to India by E.M Forster and how the themes of these two novels deal with postcolonialism and the relationship between both colonizer and the colonized. It explains the world of colony and how it describes a group of people leaving their native country to settle in a new geographical location subject to, and how post-colonial theory is built in large part around the concept of otherness with its associated problems including doublings of identity, values and meaning of the colonising culture and resistance. The study tries to show how the apparent holy mission of the colonisers led to their own loss. It also gives how the coloniser’s characters are caught between inner moral pressure conflicts and social demands. Man, in a colonised country is also torn between the uncertain world and his dissatisfying home. The study proclaims how a personal dilemma is a true reflection of the moral hypocrisy. The study concludes by depicting how hypocrisy and moral duality lead the colonizer to lose their identity as well as explaining one of the problems associated with colonizer theory, the attempt to maintain a national identity.
