$9.50
Things Fall Apart tells two intertwining stories, both centring on Okonkwo, a "strong man" of an Ibo village in Nigeria. A powerful fable of the immemorial conflict between the individual and society, the first story traces Okonkwo's fall from grace with the tribal world. The second story, as modern as the first is ancient, concerns the clash of cultures and the destruction of Okonkwo's world upon 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.
