Abstract: Alienation is one of the disturbing realities facing humanity, thus this subject caught the attention of post-colonial writers like Ayi Kwei Armah. The objectives of this present study is to scrutinize this phenomenon of alienation in neocolonial Ghana in The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born (1968); investigating the role of the capitalist system as well as the role of the existing native elites in alienating the individual from society. In addition, this dissertation illustrates the indirect moral influence of the Western commodity-based culture upon the individual through the main characters of Armah’s debut novel The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born (1968), as it examines the insights of the writer regarding his neocolonial society vis-à-vis alienation. The study tends to negotiate the theme of alienation through Ayi Kwei Armah’s debut novel The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born (1968). It discusses how this phenomenon arises in neocolonial Africa illustrating the reasons behind, and the outcomes thereof. The study zooms on the theme of alienation from Marx's point of view, as well as his insights on capitalism and commodity fetishism .
