Transcript of Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe: Folktales

Things Fall Apart-Chinua Achebe
Folktales

Vulture & the Sky:
This folktale portrays the manner in which people should be grateful towards others for what they have done for them, as well as allowing us to learn to let go of our grudges and forgive.
Mosquito & Ear
Displays how people experience bullying or mockery by being degraded by others and how those actions affect them in a negative way.
The lesson taught in this folktale is that we should not be so quick to judge and things are not what they appear to seem. The actions performed should reflect on the thought of being absolutely sure about something.
Leaves and the Snake Lizard:
How Tortoise got his Bumpy Shell
This folktale portrays the outcome that occurs from being greedy and self-interested in yourself, as Tortoise found out that it only ended in getting a "bumpy shell". The moral is to always be honest to others rather than selfish.
Mother Kite & Daughter Kite:
This folktale reveals that silence should be feared rather than dismissed. Shouts, on the other hand, should not be feared. Silence is threatening. Noise is something that should not cause worry.
By: Jesica Paisano, Jorge Valencia, and Bryan Huerta
"'There is no story that is not true,' said Uchendu"
(Achebe-141).
