    Things Fall Apart Questions, Need Help!? I just need help with a couple of these questions… don’t worry, you are not doing my whole assignment, i have 35 other questions to answer. I’m just stuck on these. I need fully detailed answers. If you even only answer 1 question that would be a big help.

    1. Consider the dual roles in the human and spiritual worlds played by the egwugwu and Chielo, the priestess of Agbala Chielo, the priestess of Agbala is introduced in Chapter 3. What does her power and status in Umofia suggest about women’s roles in Igbo culture and religious beliefs? Later in the novelm note Chielo’s roles in the village especially in chapter 6. What are those roles? What does the Chapter 11 incident involving the priestess of Agbala tell us about the values of the culture? What side of Okonkwo is revealed by his behavior during that long night?

    2. Compara Obierka- a man “who thinks about things”- to Okonkwo. Consider Obierika as a kind of FOIL- a parallel or contrasting character- to Okonkwo: Note the instances when Okonkwo fails to heed the advice of others, especially of Obierika: what are the consequences? Three times in Part 1, Okonkwo breaks Igbo taboos: what are they and what drives him to do so in each case, and what are the consequences to Okonkwo, to his family, and to his community?

    3. Consider the marriage customs of the Igbo depicted in Things Fall Apart. Paul Brian points out that bride-price or bridewealth is “the converse of dowry. Common in many African cultures, it involves the bridegroom’s family paying substantial wealth in cash or goods for the privilege of marrying a young woman… Young women were considered marriageable in their mid-teens. Why do ou think this attitude arose? It is worth noting that European women commonly married between 15 and 18 in earlier times. There is nothing uniquely African about these attitudes.” Compare Igbo marriage customs to ours in the U.S.: what are the advantages and disadvantages of each system? In Chapter 12, how is the importance of family emphasized in the Uri ceremony, when the bridewealth is paid?

    4. Ezinma is believed to be an ogbanje, meaning those who “come and go.” Child mortality rates were high, the majority of children dying in early childhood. If a series of such deaths took place in a family, it was believed that the same wicked spirit was being born and dying over and over again, spitefully grieving its parents. What is done to break the cycle of birth and death (Chapter 9)? Why does Ekwefi prize her daughter Ezinma so highly? How does the Igbo belief in ogbanje and the efforts to break the cycle of birth and death contrast to the “enigma” of “throwing away” of twins. Does Achebe seem to validate the belief in ogbanje?

    5. Having shown us an engagement ceremony in CHapter 12, Achebe depicts a funeral in Chapter 13. Paul Brian notes that we seem to be “systematically introduced to the major rituals of Igbo life.” How does the one-handed egwugwu praise the dead man? What do we learn from the depiction of the funeral ceremony? What tragic incident forces Okonkwo into exile?

    6.THe egwugwu ceremon of the Igbo is dramatized in Chapter 10. Paul Brian believes that “the women clearly know on some level that these mysterious beings are their men folk in disguise, yet they are terrified of them when they become egwugwu”: why? Who are the egwugwu and what are the functions of the ceremony? Compare the Igbo system of judgement with that of the U.S.
    btw the book is called Things Fall Apart.. hence why the title is called “Things Fall Apart questions” hahah

  • Umass Amherst Or URI? Hi! So I’ve just got accepted to both colleges and I want to know which is best for me. I want to be happy in the college I’m in and the people I’m surrounded by. I’m a normal down to earth kind of person. I’m classy but I like to fun like get drunk, go to parties, and just have a good time but not in a trashy, sketchy way. I heard umass amherst is a crazy party school which is awesome but will I like the kind of parties or the kind of fun they have? I heard URI isn’t fun which I don’t want but is it true? If I want to have fun but in a clean classy way which college is best? Which college is best academically? Which campus is better? How about students? Which one do you think is better for me?

    What Are The Symptons Of Upper Respiratory Infection? I have a feeling in my upper chest that causes me to cough a dry cough all the time. It is much better and somewhat comfortable when I drink lots (120 oz per day) of water. Also have draining from, I guess, sinuses. Is this URI? I have had it for 4 months now and keep hoping to throw it off but to no avail.
