Description


Chinua Achebe has acquired a virtually unchallenged reputation as the 'Godfather' of modern African writing. This Reader's Guide enables students to navigate the bewildering field of Achebe criticism, setting out the key areas of critical debate, the most influential alternative approaches to his work and the controversies that have so often surrounded it. The Guide examines Achebe's key novels - with the main focus on Things Fall Apart - and also discusses his less well-known short fiction.
