Abstract: The study is an exploration of the notion of a lost home as a metaphor in Zimbabwean literary works of the post 2000 era. The post 2000 Zimbabwe-authored selected texts are The Uncertainty of Hope (2006) by Tagwira, We need New names (2013) by Bulawayo and An Elegy for Easterly (2009) by Gappah. These novels explore the metaphor of a lost home and speak comprehensively on the issues affecting the post 2000 Zimbabwe. They do so by making se of metaphors that seek to communicate meaning beyond their physical world. The research focus on looking into the idea of a home as symbolic of a much broader context of issues and how homeless itself could be devastating factor in the moral, social and psychological fabric of a society.
