Abstract:Entropy, a feature of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, is a complex scientific value that measures the amount of energy lost in a macrostate. The lost energy is useless and causes the decline and inevitable destruction of the system. In terms of literature, entropy retains its scientific definition and also acquires a social significance. In this thesis, I will argue that the nature of colonization creates entropy in the colony among the macrostate, the area or country that is colonized, and the microstates, the native individuals of the colonized area. I will specifically focus on Mohsin Hamid's Moth Smoke and E.M. Forster's A Passage to India as examples of entropic decline in colonies as they are represented in postcolonial literature.
