Even as Achebe works to educate his readers about African culture and to combat demeaning stereotypes about Africa, he does not present the Igbo society as ideal or perfect. The portrait of this
culture on the eve of its “falling apart” in Part I of Things Fall Apart is complex, sometimes contradictory and critical. What aspects of pre-colonial Igbo culture does Achebe seem to question or
criticize? How does Achebe use characters like Obierika, Okonkwo, and Nwoye to offer such social criticism of Igbo society? Please note: Unless your response clearly and consistently provides
evidence of engagements with novel, your grade will be lowered accordingly. Your work must be documented APA style.
