Abstract

This paper engages in a postcolonial/multicultural analysis of Chinua Achebe's Classic Things Fall Apart. It argues that in an attempt to reconcile two worlds, post colonial texts such as Things Fall A/tart also come apart in self conflicting signification. The paper contends that although Things Fall Apart is grounded in both western novelistic tradition and the oracle of Africa in an attempt to blend and, create a multicultural contents and form the text deconstructs itself in its presentation of an "insider" mew of Africa.
