46/2017 Maj månads bok i #boktokigsutmaning2017 skulle vara av en afrikansk författare. Några bokvänner rekommenderade Chinua Achebes debutroman "Allt går sönder". Boken är en historisk roman som utspelar sig i slutet av 1800-talet hos en stam som är en del av Igbofolket i Nigeria. Detta är i brytpunkten, just när England håller på att kolonialisera landet. Bokens huvudperson är Okonkwo, en stark och stolt man som håller stammens traditioner högt. Större delen av boken beskriver det gamla stamsamhället, tiden just innan missonärerna gjort sitt intåg. Men redan då börjar man se sprickorna: en del yngre håller inte de gamla traditionerna lika högt vilket upprör män som Okonkwo. Det är en fantastisk bok! Författaren, som själv är igbo men uppvuxen med en far som var lärare hos missonärerna, lyckas hitta balansen mellan det koloniala och det antikoloniala synsättet. I förordet till boken står: "... han talar inifrån en afrikansk karaktär snarare än porträtterar afrikanen som exotisk.", och det beskriver det väldigt bra! I upplagan jag läste (från 2000) ingår en essä om igbofolkets kultur. Att läsa den gav mig en ökad förståelse för handlingen i boken! 👍 Tack @boktokig för att du ledde in mig på afrikanska författare så att jag "hittade" denna pärla till bok! 😊 #chinuaachebe #alltgårsönder #thingsfallapart #bokförlagettranan @bokforlaget_tranan #klassiker #afrikansklitteratur #boktokigsutmaning2017 #läst2017

" Perhaps down in his heart Okonkwo was not a cruel man. But his whole life was dominated by fear, the fear of failure and of weakness. It was deeper and more intimate that the fear of evil and capricious gods and of magic, the fear of the forest, and of the forces of nature, malevolent, red in tooth and claw. Okonkwo’s fear was greater than these. It was not external but lay deep within himself. " . . One of the best books that I read last year. Even in the short length Achebe was successful in bringing out the pain. #bookstagramindia #bookstagram #books #thingsfallapart #penguinclassics #chinuaachebe #penguinclassics #bookish #bookishphotography #bookphotography #igreads #bookworm_insta #classics #igbo #africa #lassi #bookworm #bibliophile #2k17 #kolkata #kolkatagram

Writing has always been a serious business for me. I felt it was a moral obligation. A major concern of the time was the absence of the African voice. Being part of that dialogue meant not only sitting at the table but effectively telling the African story from an African perspective - in full earshot of the world. ________________________________ #ChinuaAchebe, #ThereWasaCountry: A Personal History of Biafra, #africa

I'm an explicit person. I need to have things spelled out to me, in painstaking detail, and I need to feel as though many, many rocks have been overturned in telling me a story. I'm a words person. I love a rich and diverse vocabulary; I want to feel as though words have been deliberately chosen, and carefully arranged, to deliver maximum meaning and impact when I read them. I'm a people person. I want to know what goes on in their heads, why they act the way they do, how their histories have shaped them, and to see them change in front of my eyes. So for these reasons, #ThingsFallApart did not satisfy me. It felt more like a cautionary tale than an exercise in empathy. And I had this recurrent thought while reading, that these bite-sized chapters would make for great verbal re-telling, but the author hasn't really drawn on all the literary devices available to him in this medium. Which is the same recurrent thought I had while reading the #No1LadiesDetectiveAgency last year. Now, the two books are worlds apart in many ways, as are the authors. I don't want to lump them under a generic heading of 'African books' and move on, but there were similarities. I had hoped that I could dismiss #AlexanderMcCallSmith as another reason I don't really enjoy detective novels, but maybe I have a bias against books from a verbal storytelling culture as well. The only way to find out will be to read more! #IsMyColonialismShowing #ItsNotYouItsMeAchebe #AwkwardReviews #BooksOf2017 #ChinuaAchebe #ThingsFallApart #BookmarkCourtesyOfAFriendsSafari #WhatBloodyHappenedInTheCave #WhatWasTheThirdWifesName #SoManyMissingDetails

March 6, 1988. _________________________________ Most writers who are beginners, if they are honest with themselves, will admit that they are praying for a readership as they begin to write. But it should be the quality of the craft not the audience, that should be the greatest motivating factor. For me, at least, I can declare that when I wrote THINGS FALL APART I couldn't have told anyone the day before it was accepted for publication that anybody was going to read it. There was no guarantee; nobody ever said to me, Go and write this, we will publish it and we will read it; it was just there. But my brother-in-law who was not a particularly voracious reader, told me that he read the novel through the night and it gave him a terrible headache the next morning. And I took that as an encouraging endorsement! __________________________ #chinuaachebe #thingsfallapart #writer #nigeria #africa

It’s true that a child belongs to its father. But when a father beats his child, it seeks sympathy in its mother’s hut. A man belongs to his fatherland when things are good and life is sweet. But when there is sorrow and bitterness he finds refuge in his motherland. Your mother is there to protect you. She is buried there. And that is why we say that mother is supreme. _____________________ #chinuaachebe #thingsfallapart #iyaniwura
