ABSTRACT:
Colonization created an opportunity for the colonizers to create division in the colonies for their own designs. Colonial discourse created by. Western authors is primarily concerned with the culture, traditions or the way of living with the Colonized people. Contrary to this, Post-colonial discourse and Achebe’s Things Fall Apart writes back to the centre orchestrated by the west by questioning and countering the Colonial discourses. The novel definitely is an anti-imperialist discourse because of the depiction of the Igbo society in particular and African culture In general. Achebe’s novel aptly counters the discourse created by the western writers through their Literature. The paper examines and uncovers Chinua Achebe representation of Igbo culture as a counter to the European culture. Besides, the paper will try to reveal the Chinua Achebe motive of reclaiming and restoring the Igbo culture and society after firmly and sternly highlighting the high handedness of Colonial masters on his soil.
