I think it would be nice to read "Things Fall Apart" after I finish reading "Half of a Yellow Sun." Seeing how amazing Chimamanda's writing is, I can't help but wonder Achebe's prose. Have any of you read this? What are your thoughts?

From the second half of this year, I Decided to Read books written by Only African writers and since I can't particularly access A Lot of them, I am Re-reading the ones I have read before. Either as a Primary or high school student like #chinuaachebe 's "There was a country". Which is "His Personal History of Biafra". Knowing what I know Now and reading about his views on our major Borrowed Religion "Christianity" as to what we had, and Balancing the APPRECIATION of the "White Mans" education that came with it which "Enabled" him to be able to put his thoughts into writing thus Asking Questions like why they brought this Christianity in the same period when "the Christian slave Masters"came to Africa to constantly ship us away overseas. Like how do we not see that there is a Mental slavery still in existence somewhere around the corner of our minds by the knowledge "Deposited" right there which has been passed down to generations in a way that From the moment you are born you are given a "Name" a "Religion" and a "Tribe" (An identity) which you have no Say whatsoever over. So if I say that I am NOT IN SUPPORT of #biafra it is not because I don't particularly buy the Idea of fighting for what is yours. But it's because I see no reason why you should start a fight without Properly first UNDERSTANDING what is Rightfully Yours and then investing your time and effort to build it into something that would be the ENVY of others. When @charleyboy said that the IGBO'S Should go Home and Develop their Homes first, it is words Of wisdom from a man well Rooted in the knowledge of where he comes from. As for Me, I think it'd be Profitable for me to have more of an insight as to my Knowledge of Africa because I owe it to my Kids and this Generation to come, the Education of how Powerful, Smart and independent we are as Africans and how we should recognize that our Strength is in FIRST Our Diversity, and then in Knowing our IDENTITY and also UNDERSTANDING that our Gift Became our curse and our Misfortunes Became our Blessing. I'm going to make a Movie out of this Book someday. And a Lot of other African stories and visually Portray these things to this coming Generation.

Chike and the River, published in 1966- a magical tale of boundaries, bravery, and growth. It is a quick and easy read. One of the books I have read this summer.

Reading Update: I'm a little over the halfway mark with 'Homegoing' and 'The Education of a British Protected Child'. That was a mouthful! Not only are they African literature, but the Achebe book is a collection of his essays and I'm pretty proud of myself for tackling non-fiction. African non-fiction at that. . . I mentioned in my stories that the book by Achebe doesn't read like non-fiction at all, but feels like you're having a conversation with an incredibly witty and insightful man. The essays range from political to historical to personal and they're all portrayed in an eloquent yet intimate manner which makes it quite enjoyable to read. . . As for Homegoing, I don't know what to say other than my heart has been wrenched out, stomped, put back in place only to be wrenched out again. There were several times I had to stop reading because I felt so much despair for the characters. I do have my reservations but I'll give Gyasi the benefit of doubt until I complete the novel . . . "We cannot trample upon the humanity of others without devaluing our own. The Igbo, always practical, put it concretely in their proverb Onye ji onye n'ani ji onwe ya: 'He who will hold another down in the mud must stay in the mud to keep him down'." - Chinua Achebe . . . "The need to call this thing 'good' and this thing 'bad', this thing 'white' and this thing 'black', was an impulse that Effia did not understand. In her village, everything was everything. Everything bore the weight of everything else." - Yaa Gyasi . . P:S, if you're a resident of the EAC and you'd like these books, or any other African literature, check out the giveaway I'm co-hosting a few posts down my feed . . #KenyanBibliophile #IGreads #YaaGyasi #Homegoing #ChinuaAchebe #TheEducationOfABritishProtectedChild #Afreads

Chinua Achebe and the Risky Business of Being an Ancestor by Ainehi Edoro Ancestral time is a past that opens out into the future. It is an incomplete past that still has to be fulfilled. Ancestral time is a strange order of time where someone who is supposed to be dead and buried in the past continues to make demands on the future.  In refusing death, an ancestor gives himself over to the living, and, in so doing, asserts himself as a contemporary of the living. Through sacrifice, worship, and the sharing of gifts and communion, the descendant testifies to the fact that the ancestor is a contemporary. Bad descendants, therefore, are bad not because they exile their ancestors to the past. There is something comforting about being tucked away in the still darkness of a dead and completed past. A bad descendant is one who excludes the living ancestor from a present with which he or she is contemporaneous and from a future in which he or she continues to the implicated. What an ancestor fears most—this is why Okonkwo “shudders”—is being trapped in a future that has no content and having to wait perpetually, being caught between “the ashes of by gone days” and sacrifices that are yet to come, hemmed in between the “no more” and the “not yet.” To abandon an ancestor is to cast him or her off to some temporal limbo where he or she is trapped in a state of perpetual longing. The ancestor outlives his or her death. However, the capacity to share a future with the living depends on the descendants. What is the point in outliving ones death if what awaits one is loneliness?   #ainehiedoro #chinuaachebe #mourning #thingsfallapart #ancestors #africanspiritualality @chinuaachebe

Z dalekiego Mokotowa trafiła do mnie, dzięki mojemu motocyklowo mobilnemu mężowi, książka wspaniałego nigeryjskiego autora. Dowiedziałam się o nim podczas lektury wywiadu z moją ukochaną Chimamandą Ngozi #Adichie. To jeden z jej ulubionych pisarzy, którego dziełami zaczytywała się w młodości. Podobno on sam przeczytał po latach jej "Fioletowego hibiskusa" i bardzo przyjemnie zrecenzował. #book #books #ksiazka #ksiazkizbiblioteki #instabook #bookstagram #books📚 #czytambolubie #czytam #terazczytam #powieść #nigeria #chinuaachebe #wszystkorozpadasię #herbata #tea #bibliotekamokotów
