Okonkwo has overcome incredible adversity. His father's pathetic end and death tainted him with shame, and left him without inheritance. His rise to social power and wealth has been a triumph of stubbornness and will. The villagers see Okonkwo as a confident that he can master his environment; he rules as a man, and he is fiercely proud of his people.
