Beschreibung

This book is a critical analysis of Chinua Achebe s magnum opus, Things Fall Apart and his third novel, Arrow of God. Both these texts have been read from the perspective of colonialism and post-colonialism. The novels portray the life of the Igbo people through their culture and traditions which were considered as barbaric by the colonizers. There had been inner conflicts in the Igbo society which resulted in the differences of opinion among the younger and the older generation of Africa; leading to the incursion of the colonizers. With the advent of the colonizers, this chasm between the old and the young increased drastically and slowly the natives fell prey to the craftiness of the outsiders.
