Summary
"Things Fall Apart" is one of the most widely read African novels ever published. First published in 1958, it is written by one of Nigeria's leading novelists, Chinua Achebe. Set in the Ibo village of Umuofia, it recounts a stunning moment in African history - its colonization by Britain. It carefully re-creates tribal life before the arrival of Europeans in Africa, and then details the jarring changes brought on by the advent of colonialism and Christianity. This Norton Critical Edition includes an authoritative text, contextual and source materials, and a wide range of interpretations--from contemporary perspectives to the most current critical theory
