Abstract
Adichie’s Purple Hibiscus is a feminist work in which dominance of Eugene Achike is shown over Kambili Achike who is the central character in Purple Hibiscus and also the narrator of the story, Beatrice Achike, mother and wife in the Achike family, Chukwuka Achike, nicknamed "Jaja" by his family. Kambili, her brother and mother became the victim of domestic violence. They are often beaten by her father, Eugene Achike He was conditioned to believe that punishment is the natural answer to any behavior that could be perceived to be against God’s will. The violence that follows a military coup, also affects Kambili’s life. She observes and is horrified by scenes of strikes and violent altercations between civilians and soldiers and feels desperate for being helpless. Purple Hibiscus is in summary, a powerful tale of oppression and liberation at many levels. The most horrifying experiences are told with the candid and smooth voice of Kambili, thus making them almost bearable or at least, giving hope that things will get better. There are three symbols of oppression and liberation that strike the most: the figurines, the love sip of Papa’s tea and the Purple Hibiscus.
