Part I, chapters 1-13, focuses on Igbo cultural values and beliefs. Readers contrast the various villages’ practices to Western traditions, and consider their personal responses as well. Part II, chapters 14-19, asks readers to look at Oknokwo as a classic tragic hero and to examine the similarities and differences between the religious beliefs of the Igbo and the Christian missionaries. The final portion of the study guide, chapters 20-25, considers the European colonial presence and asks readers to consider how and why things fell apart.
