Reflections on Things Fall Apart.
Tremendous events had occured throughout this exciting and unpridictible novel. However, one of the most major and defining aspects of the novel was Okonkwo's inclement and harsh actions. Okonkwo is the main charecter of the novel. Through the reading,Okonkwo revealed and expresed him- self as an obssesively harsh, visios and forceful person. Okonkwo had extensively revealed himself as a robust man of great fortitude and courage. He rarely expressed feelings of love, weakness or care twards others. Throughout the novel Okonkwo illustates himself notoriously, and person that didn't reveale any emotion openly unless it was the emotion of extreme anger. In the Igbo society expressing affection was a sign of weakness, the only thing worth demonstrating was strength and extreme fortitude. In some peoples point of view Okonkwo's actions revealed extreme malignance and cruelty. however, in Okonkwo's point of view his actions were correct and showing any differance in his actions would be considered as a feminon act or bieng craven. Basically Okonkwo was a part of a society of various thoughts and beliefs. Okonkwo, built his self as fearless and couragous. his word or comand was to be immedietly done. However, in various ways, i think Okonkwo tries to somehow reveal some affection twards differnt situations. Okonkwos way of treeting others remains the ideal way in his point of view. Basically, Okonkow's personality is a major aspect in structuring a massive portion of the novel. *Chinua wrote a wonderfull novel (Things Fall Apart)and revealed the influence of western society on the African culture.Was this review helpful?
