What was the pattern of conflict between traditional African values, as exemplified by Igbo socio-cultural life, and those of the invading alien Western culture?
Please read the instruction and make sure to use IN TEXT CITATION from the readings.
The review paper should deal with but not restricted to the following questions:
1.What was the pattern of conflict between traditional African values, as exemplified by Igbo socio-cultural life, and those of the invading alien Western culture?
2.What was the nature of relationship between the rich and the poor in the traditional Igbo society as represented by Okonkwo and his father, Unoka?
3.Culture is not usually static but dynamic. Do you agree? Where would you place the Igbo culture? In your opinion, do you think that traditional practices such as the killing of twins would have withered away over time without the intervention of Europeans? Analyze this with specific examples from the novel.
4.How unique were certain cultural practices such as arrangements and celebrations of marriages and deaths, punishment for heinous crimes such as murder for which Okonkwo was banished from Umuofia. Comment on Umuofia’s sense of justice.
5.In your own judgment, what specifically fell apart? How did things fall apart in Igbo society? Did things fall apart for the better?
