A Reader's Guide to Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart

Series: Multicultural Literature

By George Shea

Chinua Achebe’s THINGS FALL APART stands as much a piece of cultural anthropology as it is a work of literature. It is a balanced, living portrait of a civilization and culture, a way of life, that existed for thousands of years before the coming of colonialism. The publication of THINGS FALL APART was a multicultural milestone—it is one of the first African novels to be written in English, as well as one of the most powerful stories ever told.
