Things Fall Apart

Norton Critical Editions


Chinua Achebe (Author), Francis Abiola Irele (Editor, Harvard University)

Overview | Contents

Chinua Achebe’s tragic novel of pre-colonial Igbo society was a major literary and cultural event when it was published in 1958.

Written during a period of nationalist assertion and an emerging modern culture in Africa, Things Fall Apart’s influence quickly spread from Nigeria throughout Africa and beyond. In its fifty years, this unforgettable novel has been translated into fifty languages and has been read by millions.

A Chronology of Achebe’s life and work and a Selected Bibliography are also included.
