The Significance of Storytelling
Storytelling is one of the most important factors in the writing of "Things Fall Apart". When the storyteller sometimes talks in Okonkwo's point of view, it changes the interpretation of what is going on. Someone who has been through a situation will tell a story in a whole different light than someone who witnesses the situation from the outside.
1.Ogbuefi Ezeudu talked about how the punishment for breaking peace during the Week of Peace was much more strict. Because of this, we know that punishmets were more cruel in the past in the tribe of Umofia.(p. 31, 18-26)
2. The narrator told a short story about Ekwefi and how "Okonkwo had won her heart by throwing the Cat in the greatest contest within living memory." This part of the book was about Ekwefi. This tells us that Okonkwo is determined.(p. 39, 27-29)
3. There is another story about Unoka, Okonkwo's father. Note this pasage because it gives us a lot of past information on a chacter in the book. Since this passage was in the very beginning of the book, it is just an introduction. (p. 4, 11)
