About This Book
A novel depicting the gradual decline of a tribal village in Africa in the late 19th century due to the influx of violent Western powers. This work, whose main character is a man trying to protect his tribe's culture and customs against violent Western forces, was published in 1958 when author Chinua Acheba was 28.
The large and small events that take place around the main character, Okonkwo, show life in a 19th-century African tribal village in a very realistic way.
This novel feels like a documentary because it excludes fictional exaggerations and descriptions as much as possible. The scene at the end of the novel where the white magistrate plans to include Okonkwo's death in his thesis suggests that this work could be an 'anthropological report'.
