Things Fall Apart--the first volume of Chinua Achebe's masterpiece The African Trilogy--tells two intertwining stories, both centering on Okonkwo, a "strong man" of an Igbo village in Nigeria. The first, a powerful fable of the immemorial conflict between the individual and society, traces Okonkwo's fall from grace in his world. The second, as modern as the first is ancient, concerns the clash of cultures and the destruction of that world when European missionaries arrive in his village.
