The African Trilogy by Chinua Achebe
The African Trilogy by Chinua Achebe Everyman's Library Edition. In Things Fall Apart, Achebe’s first and perhaps best-loved novel, the individual tragedy of Okonkwo, ‘strong man’ and tribal elder is intertwined with the transformation of traditional Igbo society under the impact of Christianity and colonialism. In No Longer at Ease, his grandson, Obi, educated in England, returns to a civil-service job in colonial Nigeria, only to clash with the ruling elite to which he now believes he belongs. In Arrow of God, the conflict is explored from the point of view of Ezuelu, an Igbo priest, and Captain Winterbottom, a British district officer. In spare and lucid prose, Achebe tells a universal tale of personal and moral struggle in a changing world which has captured the imaginations of readers everywhere.
