Working Thesis: In Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, the contrasting character traits of Obierika and Okonkwo serve to highlight the complex and nuanced perspectives on masculinity, tradition, and change within the Ibo culture.
I could explore how Obierika’s more thoughtful and introspective approach to tradition and change contrasts with Okonkwo’s more aggressive and violent approach.
I could also examine how these character traits play out in their relationships with their families and community members.
I could research and incorporate additional outside sources to provide more context and analysis on the themes and motifs present in the novel.
