Things Fall Apart The Bible Answers may vary. Example: The story suggests that the locusts are not feared but welcomed by the Ibo. The author creates a celebratory environment in which the people praise the presence of the insects. These insects help clear wild grass after the harvest and provide a delectable meal for the Nigerian people. The tribe celebrates their arrival and works together gathering the locusts. They roast them and enjoy eating them along with palm oil for many days. The arrival of the locusts is a celebratory ritual for the Ibo. The locusts symbolize profit and reward. Answers may vary. Example: The biblical account of the locusts‚ in Exodus‚ tells the story of how God uses the insect as punishment. When the locusts descend, they eat every plant in Egypt and cover the land so that it is completely dark. The Egyptian people fear the locusts‚ because they create great destruction and devastation. The tone is ominous and creates a feeling of fear. The book of Revelation relates how the locusts will come out of the bowels of the earth‚ not to destroy the vegetation as in Exodus, but to torment humans. Their sting will be so severe people will want to die but will not be allowed to. The reader feels the foreshadowed doom prophesized by the writer of Revelation. In the Bible, locusts symbolize death and destruction.

    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.
