In publication for more than 50 years, Things Fall Apart tells both a modern story and an ancient one. The common thread in Chinua Achebe’s classic story is Okonkwo, one of the principal members in the Ibo Village in Nigeria. The novel’s focus on history, cultural and social science has made it a staple for high school curriculum.
The ancient story gives us an idea of Okonkwo’s past struggle. Once revered in his village, Okonkwo suffers a blow that changes his position drastically. Fast forward many years, when we find our protagonist and his village at the mercy of European missionaries. This second narrative tells a story that translates to many parts of the world overtaken by settlers. Both of these stories set in the Ibo Village provides history as well as a character-centered narrative that keeps readers hooked till the end.
