Okonkwo is a wealthy tribesman, a warrior and the clan leader in Umuofia. They tear the building down. The murderer was from the village of Mbaino. The novel has been adapted several times for radio, TV and film, including a firm starring Princess Elizabeth of Toro. Yam stood for manliness, and he who could feed his family on yams from one harvest to another was a very great man indeed. And so they killed him.

Ekwefi suffered the deaths of nine of her infants before she gave birth to her only living child, Ezinma. In this manner, I thought Things Fall Apart is remarkable and brilliant. After his family is exiled, Nwoye falls in with the Christian missionaries because he feels that their religion answers the questions that have been building inside of him since he overheard twin newborns crying from abandonment in the Evil Forest. I succeeded, in this case, and bore in mind that a husband beating his wife in the context of their culture is his right because she is his property, and that is a norm I should only consider myself fortunate not to be a part of. But his whole life was dominated by fear, the fear of failure and of weakness.

Inhe was in a car accident and spent the rest of his life paralyzed from the waist down. Brown approaches Okonkwo to talk about Nwoye but Okonkwo chases him away with threats of violence. Brown builds both a hospital and a school and begs the villagers to send their children to school. Obierika leads the Commissioner and his men to an area behind the compound, where Okonkwo's body hangs lifeless from a tree — a victim of suicide.

Ekwefi married Okonkwo after he won the wrestling contest. Explain gently and with examples that bestowing daddy issues on a flawed protagonist is not a sufficient excuse for all of the character's flaws, and is a device that has been overused ad naseum.

He therefore treated Ikemefuna as he treated everybody else—with a heavy hand. But he thought that one could not begin too early. Okonkwo and the rest of the villagers expect retaliation for the burned church and ready themselves with weapons.

He is worried, though, that his son is lazy, which is an issue because it is reminiscent of his father and is just generally feminine, which Okonkwo views as negative. Killing a clansman, even accidentally, is a crime against the earth goddess. Okonkwo expects that the village will be going into battle against the white men.

Suffering in Umofia's Society "You think you are the greatest sufferer in the world? That is what a man does. He must be steadfast in dominating his wives and children and must never show affection or leniency even towards his loved ones. Okonkwo is shocked to see this and surprised that his village has not driven the white men out either.
