Bookmark this page, introduction, chinua Achebe's, things Fall Apart is probably the most authentic narrative ever written about life in Nigeria at the turn of the twentieth century.

A month later, an expedition of British the Acts of Terrorism forces searched the villages in the area and killed many natives in reprisal. The Commissioner's plan for briefly treating the story of Okonkwo illustrates the inclination toward Western simplification and essentialization of African culture. In, things Fall Apart, the Europeans' understanding of Africa is particularly exemplified in two characters: the Reverend James Smith and the unnamed District Commissioner.
