A Review On Authority & Control

Things Fall Apart, Chapters 20 and 21

Work Time

Continue the work you began with your teacher, completing a Dialectical Journal in which you analyze quotations that reveal the following.

  • Evidence of the steps Mr. Brown takes to convince people to follow him
  • Evidence of different characters’ or groups reactions to Christianity

Compare the quotations you found and inferences you made with your group members.

  • How do you think your character would describe Mr. Brown and the religion he has brought?
  • At this point in the novel, what would your character think about Okonkwo and his homecoming to Umuofia? Would your character see him as a hero, an interloper, a pretender, a threat? Or something in between?
