Things Fall Apart is the first of three novels in Chinua Achebe's critically acclaimed African Trilogy. It is a classic narrative about Africa's cataclysmic encounter with Europe as it establishes a colonial presence on the continent. Told through the fictional experiences of Okonkwo, a wealthy and fearless Igbo warrior of Umuofia in the late 1800s, Things Fall Apart explores one man's futile resistance to the devaluing of his Igbo traditions by British political andreligious forces and his despair as his community capitulates to the powerful new order. With more than 20 million copies sold and translated into fifty-seven languages, Things Fall Apart provides one of the most illuminating and permanent monuments to African experience. Achebe does not only capture life in a pre-colonial African village, he conveys the tragedy of the loss of that world while broadening our understanding of our contemporary realities.
Описание: From the celebrated author of "Things Fall Apart" and winner of the Man Booker International Prize comes a new collection of autobiographical essays—his first new book in more than twenty years. Chinua Achebe’s characteristically measured and nuanced voice is everywhere present in these seventeen beautifully written pieces. In a preface, he discusses his historic visit to his Nigerian homeland on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of "Things Fall Apart," the story of his tragic car accident nearly twenty years ago, and the potent symbolism of President Obama’s election. In “The Education of a British-Protected Child,” Achebe gives us a vivid portrait of growing up in colonial Nigeria and inhabiting its “middle ground,” recalling both his happy memories of reading novels in secondary school and the harsher truths of colonial rule. In “Spelling Our Proper Name,” Achebe considers the African-American diaspora, meeting and reading Langston Hughes and James Baldwin, and learning what it means not to know “from whence he came.” The complex politics and history of Africa figure in “What Is Nigeria to Me?,” “Africa’s Tarnished Name,” and “Politics and Politicians of Language in African Literature.” And Achebe’s extraordinary family life comes into view in “My Dad and Me” and “My Daughters,” where we observe the effect of Christian missionaries on his father and witness the culture shock of raising “brown” children in America. Charmingly personal, intellectually disciplined, and steadfastly wise, "The Education of a British-Protected Child" is an indispensable addition to the remarkable Achebe oeuvre.

Описание: Power and responsibility as they affect political governance in Africa is the theme which is examined here in the works of the distinguished father of African literature. The author, a lecturer and literary critic of Commonwealth literature, identifies gross abuse of power and privilege as central to Achebe`s fiction. He looks at Achebe`s own view of the role of the African writer; the manifestation of abuse of power in his fiction; and his disillusionment with post-colonial irresponsibility in No Longer at Ease and A Man of the People. An analysis is also included of Achebe`s short stories and poems of war.
