Chinua Achebe is one of the most impressive of the African novelists writing at the present time. His novels describe with wit and dignity the traditional way of life of a West African people before the coming of the white man.This study, the first extensive discussion of Achebe's novels, examines the various aspects of this confrontation, and also the techniques by which it is articulated. Europe and Africa meet and interact not only in the drama of events, but also in the manner in which Achebe adapts and modifies the English novel for his own, African purposes.
