Your task is to discover what motivated Achebe to write the novel, as well as analyze the direction his career took after Things Fall Apart . With a partner, prepare a list of ten to fifteen interview questions. A few have been provided for you as possible examples.

Was there any specific circumstance that motivated you to write Things Fall Apart ? If so, can you explain? 2. Things Fall Apart was one of the first books to present European colonialism from an African point of view and to express‚ in English‚ the way Africans spoke in their native tongues. What effect do you feel this had on the direction of African literature?

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
