Sample text

Achebe compares the white man's judicial system and sense of justice to the Umuofia system and ethics. In the trial scene depicted earlier in Part One of the novel, everybody knows everybody, and everybody knows what the other person is capable of doing or has done. The judgment is accepted by both parties. On the other hand, in the case against Anieto, strangers are sitting in judgment. The white man gives the piece of land in dispute to Nnama's family because the family has given money to the white man's messenger.

Okonkwo's knowledge of agriculture is apparent when we see him preparing his seed yams and lecturing Nwoye and Ikemefuna on how to cut the yams for planting. The other farmers are also knowledgeable about agriculture and climatology as Achebe notes: "but every farmer knew that without sunshine the tubers would not grow" (17). Even though these farmers do not use the terminologies of western scientific discourse to explain their practices nor have knowledge of climatology and processes such as photosynthesis, they know that sunshine is crucial to crop production.

His dramatic gestures show mastery of delivery. The change of moods and expressions is rhetorical and elicits the appropriate pathos. Here Achebe is celebrating the past. The orator, Ogbuefi Ezeugo, is performing for the sake of performing. Although there is a serious reason for the oratory, he knows there is no serious threat that will adversely affect Umuofia. After all, Umuofia is feared by all its neighbors. Ogbuefi Ezeugo, as an orator talking to a homogenous society, also takes much for granted.
