Keywords:Oil Extraction, Socio-Environmental Justice, Santomean Literature, Pedro Rosa Mendes, Aíto de Jesus Bonfim
Lenin Oil (2006) by the Portuguese author Pedro Rosa Mendes and Lágrima Áurea do Mal (2011) by the Santomean writer Aíto de Jesus Bonfim are inspired by the ongoing projects of oil extraction in São Tomé and Príncipe. This paper offers an ecocritical reading of the representation of conflict, development and socio-environmental justice in the context of natural resources extraction depicted in both narratives.
