Rose 2-4-1 Short Answer: Seeing Your Artifact in a New Light The artifact I have chosen is the book, “Things Fall Apart” by a Nigerian writer, Chinua Achebe. The book was written in 1958. It focused on Nigeria’s pre and post colonial life in late nineteenth century. The novel is considered the most widely read African novel in modern era. Achebe was inspired to write the novel in an attempt to correct what he considered as the erroneous impression of Nigeria and indeed Africa by foreign writers such as Joyce Lunel Cary. He believed that the values, cultures and tradition of the indigenous people were distorted by colonialists and missionaries. The book describes a typical set up of an average Igbo family in the south- Eastern part of Nigeria during the pre and post colonist period. It shows how the family was set up with the husband being the head, the bread winner and its disciplinarian. The community was governed by a set of rules and traditions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
