To show the role of intellectuals figures in Ngugi’s Petals of Blood, the study attempts to make analysis by taking some extracts from the novel understudy. For instance, the intellectuals figures found in this novel are Munira, Karega, Wanja, Abdulla and the lawyer who strongly protest and fight for the issue of economic and political crisis caused by corruption, selfish, imperialism, greedy, murder, lack of law, judges dependency and autocratic ways of leading. These intellectuals figures are dedicated to struggle and scarify their lives for the sake of their freedom, truth and fairness, job opportunity, history and literature, property and land. These intellectuals hope that even if they are arrested and murdered the struggle would go on up to the end of their society’s liberty. The fourth chapter is the conclusion based on mainly the analysis of the research. Theconclusion recapitulates the core findings of the study in the fewest possible way.en_US
