Things Come Together with "Things Fall Apart."
Puhr, Kathleen M.
English Journal, v76 n7 p43-44 Nov 1987
Recommends using C. Achebe's English language novel, "Things Fall Apart," in a unit on tragedy. Provides plot summary and topics for discussion of cultural values and socialization. Notes that besides illustrating character traits, themes and plot structure of the tragic genre, the novel provides an opportunity for learning Nigerian colonial history and developing cultural awareness.
