Things Fall Apart
Chinua Achebe (A)
Chinua Achebe (A)
List Price: $11.95 (Paperback - African History / Post Colonization - 1994)
Description:Things Fall Apart tells two intertwining stories, both centering on Okonkwo, a äóìstrong manäó? of an Ibo village in Nigeria. The first, a powerful fable of the immemorial conflict between the individual and society, traces Okonkwoäó»s fall from grace with the tribal world. The second, as modern as the first is ancient, concerns the clash of cultures and the destruction of Okonkwo's world with the arrival of aggressive European missionaries. These perfectly harmonized twin dramas are informed by an awareness capable of encompassing at once the life of nature, human history, and the mysterious compulsions of the soul. (209 pgs)
A classic of modern African writing, this is the tale of what happens to tribal customs and old ways when white man comes.
Ashay says, "This is a powerful book and it is now required reading for students worldwide. China Achebe's writing tells of his insightful genius and love for his people and culture. This is book had been reprinted in more languages than any other book in modern history and should have won a Noble Prize for literature. A must read for all black students. Add it to your library today".
