Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart: Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations. Blooms Literary Criticism, Library Binding, 221 pages.



Things Fall Apart, set in Nigeria about a century ago, is widely regarded as Chinua Achebe's masterpiece. Considered one of the most broadly read African novels, Achebe's work responded to the two-dimensional caricatures of Africans that often dominated Western literature. This invaluable new edition of the study guide contains a selection of the finest contemporary criticism of this classic novel.
