Things Fall Apart

Sound in the book

Throughout the novel, drums, music, and the town crier’s voice punctuate the narrative at key moments. When does silence occur and what does it mean? Is there more than one type of silence? Can silence be characterized as a positive or negative occurrence? What are the implications of the fact that Unoka takes his flute with him to the Evil Forest when he dies?

There are a lot of questions here. Unfortunately there is too much detail needed for this short-answer forum.
