Things Fall Apart

Describe the narrator’s voice. You know, the “voice” telling us the story of Okonkwo, Umuofia, and the Igbo world. How would you describe this voice, its values and perspectives?

It is for a really hard english teacher.

The narrator is telling the story from a primarily omniscient point of view. The narrator seems to know all and tell all about the Igbo people. However, the narrator, regardless of who is being described, has a strong sense of how the people talk and think. He can capture the rhythm of the language of Okonkwo as well as he captures the language of the English as they descend on and take over the Igbo village.
