Chinua Achebe

Chinua Achebe
no copyright infringement intended

A great Nigerian novelist and poet, whose style relies heavily on the oral traditions of his tribe, combining straightforward narration with folk stories and proverbs (wiki). I would like to put here some of his poems. His first novel, Things Fall Apart (1958) is considered his magnum opus. Chinua Achebe died yesterday. He was 92.
