Hero's Journey Things Fall Apart: Chapters 7-13 OKONKWO'S HERO'S JOURNEY NWOYE'S HERO'S JOURNEY Trial: Trial: OKONKWO'S HERO'S JOURNEY Trial: OKONKWO'S HERO'S JOURNEY Trial: OKONKWO'S HERO'S JOURNEY CALL TO ADVENTURE: Okonkwo experienced a trial when he was told by Ezeudu (the oldest man in this quarter of Umuofia) that The Oracle of the Hills and the Caves has pronounced that Ikemefuna shall be killed "Yes, Umuofia has decided to kill him. The Oracle of the Hills and the Caves has pronounced it." Chapter Seven, Page 57 Another trial that Okonkwo faced was when Ikemefuna was to be killed and Okonkwo took part even though he was not supposed to. "He heard Ikemefuna cry, "My father, they have killed me!" as he ran towards him. Dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his machete and cut him down. He was afriad of being thought weak. Chapter Seven, Page 61 Okonkwo experiences a trial on his journey when Ekwefi wakes him in the middle of the night to say that Ezinma is dieing from "iba." "Okonkwo sprang from his bed, pushed back the bolt on his door and ran into Ekwefi's hut." Chapter Nine, Page 76 Another trial that Okonkwo faced was when he was (assumingly) chosen to represent the second "edwugwu." This was probobly a high honor, not only to be one of the edwugwu, but to be placed as the second one just behind Evil Forest. "Okonkwo's wives, and perhaps other women as well, might have noticed that the second edwugwu had the springy walk of Okonkwo. And they might have also noticed that Okonkwo was not among the titled men and elders who sat behind the row of edwugwu. But if they thought these things they kept them within themselves. Chapter 10, Page 89-90 Nwoye's Call to Adventure was when Ikemefuna arrived and became like a big brother and mentor to him. This made him want to grow up and become a man. "He was like an elder brother to Nwoye, and from the very first seemed to have kindled a new fire in the younger boy." Chapter Seven, Page 52 NWOYE'S HERO'S JOURNEY The known: The unknown: Nwoye's known world is the world of being a young boy and sitting in his mothers hut watching her cook and listening to children stories Nwoye's unknown world was the world where he began to grow up and began to sit with his father in his hut and listen to war stories. He began showing his more masculine side and began growing up all together. "They no longer spent the evenings in mother's hut while she cooked, but now sat with Okonkwo in his obi, or watched him as he tapped palm tree for the evening wine." Chapter Seven, Page 52 NWOYE'S HERO'S ADVENTURE The Abyss: Nwoye's abyss takes place when Ikefuma is taken away and killed. He lost his brother and he begins stepping backward back into the known world of womens cooking and children's stories. "Nwoye knew that Ikemefuna had been killed, and something seemed to give way inside him, like the snapping of a tightened bow. He did not cry. He just hung limp."
