Using the theories of Albert Memmi and Frantz Fanon, a close reading of Wild Seed demonstrates the applicability of postcolonial theory to Octavia Butler’s literary work. Butler’s exploration of fluidity in gender, gender roles, race, and sexuality also prompts discussion of some of the limitations of Memmi and Fanon’s theories.
