This paper discusses the use and effect of the Nigerian setting in Chinua Achebe's novel, "Things Fall Apart." The paper also examines Achebe's decision to write the novel in English for Western audiences.

From the Paper:

"Setting of Achebe's "Things Fall Apart." In "Things Fall Apart" Chinua Achebe introduces his audience to a world completely different from the one in which they live. He writes the novel in English instead of his native Nigerian, thus it is apparent that he means this work to be witnessed by Western cultures rather than those whom he writes about."
