lost. This shows just how rapidly the colonization took effect. It seems inevitable that much indigenous tradition and heritage will be swept away, resulting in feelings of cultural dislocation, and loss of identity.Despite the fact that author Achebe doesn't seem to keen about the colonization, he does mention some positive aspects. He clearly does not object to the discovery of and learning about new religions and cultures. He presents a strong argument in favor of discussion as a way of understanding. In Things Fall Apart, the missionary Mr. Brown and Akunna, one of the tribal elders, often spend long hours in discussion, and although ''Neither of them succeeded in converting the other

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad and in Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe both involve the colonization on Africa. In Heart of Darkness, the author talks about how savage the natives were and how much there was a need to update the living conditions of the natives and to help them become better people. In Things Fall Apart, the author talks about how the white people came in with their bicycles and their new religion. He talks about how they turned some of their own people against them. In his eyes, the white people came in to destroy the natives beliefs, traditions and gods. They tried to convince the natives that there was only one God and not a group of lesser Gods.

"Interesting views on society are conveyed by the distinctively visual."
The confronting realisation of situations that ordinary people are put into can be gruesome
and explicit. In both Shoe-Horn Sonata by John Misto and "A Mother in a Refugee Camp"
written by Chinua Achebe, Distinctively Visual utilises language techniques, projected
images and the physical acting on stage to create images in the audiences minds which
forces them to visualise the world that the composer is creating.

Being set in the 60s, Chinua Achebe's book A Man of The People, introduces the reader to the social and political upheaval that was prevalent in the newly liberated African countries. Achebe skillfully weaves underlying themes like nationalism, empirism, corruption and the effects of western influence into the story. The quality of Achebe's writing is also seen in the way he presents one or a combination of these themes in his characters. Chinua Achebe's book is of great historical significance as it portrays the growing pains of each newly liberated country. It is also important as it aptly describes the situation in Nigeria prior to the national coup of 1966.To further appreciate his book

for example, is the belief that men are superior to women. Due to stereotyping and gender role
idealization, women are deemed less capable than men. In line with this belief, then, is the idea
that women - who in theory are inferior to men - should not be granted the power of speech. In
“Things Fall Apart”, Chinua Achebe uses literary devices such as characterization and setting to
show the silencing of women by men. The author does so in order to convey the idea that in
Umuofia there is direct correlation between gender and power.
Initially, one example that showcases the silencing of women by men in Umuofia are Achebe’s
deliberate characterization choices for Nwoye’s mother. This character

has taken over Kurtz’s body and that it he is the only one at fault here. Achebe says, “But he foolishly exposed himself to the wild irresistible allure of the jungle and lo! The darkness found him out” (Achebe 1793).
In conclusion, I strongly believe that the journey of Congo did in fact cause Kurtz to become insane. Kurtz started off as a civilized white man who has gone to that region for the purpose of trade but the temptations of the jungle cause him to incite primitive instincts that had been aroused by the natives that inhabited the land.

In the novel “Things fall apart” by Chinua Achebe readers are introduced to a different Africa than what the world have known. The readers have changed to travel back in time and go to the pre-colonial Africa, more specifically Nigeria, to a village named Umofia where the Ibo people live. The Ibo people form a very archaic and agriculture based society. Achebe introduces readers to this new world that was seen by the Europeans as an unsociable and savage place and shows that the African culture was destroyed by the arrival of the Europeans in that land. But not only that, he brings up different points of social analysis like religion, the taboo “white people vs. black people” during the

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
“There is no story that is not true, [...] The world has no end, and what is good among one people is an abomination with others.” The novel “Things Fall Apart”, by Chinua Achebe, shows us how change can split entire traditions, simply by stealing the young. The good among a certain people is a ‘flip side of a coin’. There can be highly regarded traditions, such as listening to the Oracles when he or she says to sacrifice someone, as shown in chapter seven. Yet, they may cause harm to people, as pointed out in the end of the book, so the traditions must change and evolve. This book

WOMEN IN ACHEBE'S WORLDRose Ure MezuWhen literary activities marking the sixtieth birthday of Chinua Achebe reached fever-pitch in 1990, the greatest accolade given him was summed up in one metaphor: the eagle on the iroko. Now, anybody familiar with the African landscape knows that the iroko is the tallest, strongest tree in the forest and that the eagle is, of course, the king of the birds. It is not an easy feat to scale the tree; that is why the Igbo proverb insists: "One does not climb the iroko twice." Having succeeded in climbing the iroko, the climber should appropriate all that he finds there: he may not be able to do so again. The eagle, however, can both scale and soar above the

Ninth grade represents a pivotal point in a student's academic career. Students no longer have the liberty to give simple answers; now they have to think. Answers in high school are not so easily available. Characters become more difficult to define, and even a patch of grass has some ambiguous meaning. A prime example comes from Chinua Achebe's novel, Things Fall Apart. Ezinma is considered to be a minor character by many, and by word count, she is mentioned less than other, more important, characters. However, she is an extremely important part of Achebe's novel. She develops more than any character in the story, although many critics dismiss Achebe's characterization of this amazing

"Things Fall Apart" is an amazing novel by Chinua Achebe that illustrates the conflict occurring during the period of British colonization of Africa. The novel is told from the perspective of the native people of Ibo. The novel takes place in Umuofia, in Nigeria, in an area where their culture is indigenous to the Ibo people. In "Things Fall Apart" it seems that the African Ibo culture was strong and functional, such as in its religious beliefs and customs, government, economic, and social coherence. The order of Ibo society became interrupted and began to unravel when the white missionaries entered Africa and introduced Christianity. Oknowko, the main character in the novel, is the

Racism is equally relevant and mostly responsible for the confidence that countries have in practicing Colonialism. There are two views that may be concluded about Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness,’ regarding racism. The first view is that Marlow in the words of ‘White Teeth and postcolonial literature,’ regarding Said’s ‘Orientalism,’ “rendered them (‘the other’) at best invisible and at worst dehumanised them.” And hence, Conrad, through Marlow, making verbal expressions like, “He was an improved specimen...to look at him was as edifying as seeing a dog in parody of breeches and a feather hat, walking on his hind legs,” (70) is a racist.

The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within.

Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and

Fredrich Nietzche once said “The individual has always struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the the privilege of owning yourself.” In my opinion, I believe this quote is true. Many people feel like they have to be a certain way for society to like them. When in reality, they want to be true to to themselves, but they are fearful of judgement.

The rose with large, sharp thorns in my visual representation symbolizes Katherine as she does not obey men and physically harms them to get what she wants as even though she is pretty and has high status she has a dangerous, sharp personality. The colour of the rose represents her love, passion and anger as she has many layers much like the rose

How has genetic engineering worked until now, and what are the limitations?
Generally it uses what’s known as a bacterial vector. In simple terms, you take the stretch of DNA you want to insert into an organism – say, for example, the DNA that makes a carrot produce vitamin A. You insert it into a bacterium, usually agrobacterium tumefaciens, and you introduce that bacterium into the organism you want to modify, say a rice plant.

This method proved to be ineffective for crime fighting, and many watchmen were only doing the job to avoid military service (Gaines, Kappeler, and Vaughn 1999).
