Things Fall Apart, Chapters 20 and 21
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?
