The Family by Pa
Chin and Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe: The Conflict
and Acceptance of Change
The status of the family described within Pa
Chin's work The Family is defined by class status and
definitive social design. The structure of power and the

Achebe's "Things Falling Apart"
me this essay ]
An 8 page argumentative essay on the option lost during the
change in Ibo society of which Chinua Achebe writes. The
writer posits that the British definition of Ibo society
based on the actions of Okonkwo, cost it its identities in
the justice and spiritual realms, and that Achebe's point
was that there was another option-the option of
coexistence. Had the power abusers not defined Ibo, the
change would have been one of acceptance of both cultures
and the loss of none. Bibliography lists 1 source.
