A total of 500 words. PLEASE NUMBER THE POSTS and they are to be 250 words each. Research is necessary for this weekâ€™s DF. Consult and cite at least one reputable source in your posts. Your source may provide cultural or historic information, or it may share a scholarâ€™s view on a facet of the novel. Some resources have been provided in this weekâ€™s reading and viewing materials.
1. Many scholars claim that much of the novelâ€™s success lies in its objective tone. They claim the narrator does not favor either the European or Igbo people. Did you find the narration objective or subjective? If subjective, who is favored? If objective, how are the portraits balanced or fair? Support your view with references to the text.
2. In Part II, Okonkwo is exiled to his motherland. How is Mbanta different from Umuofia? What is significant about his return to his motherland? How does this change affect Okonkwo\’s identity?
Use the below references – you can use others but these two must be used regardless if you seek others.
