World Views in Chinua Achebe's Works


Raisa Simola

Chinua Achebe examines Nigerian societies not only of different times but from many perspectives as well. This study concentrates on the differing world views (Weltbilder) in his texts; all the novels of the writer, his collections of essays, children books, short stories as well as poems are taken under scrutiny. In addition, the world view (Weltanschauung) of the writer is examined. Through it, Achebe's «message» for a better future is distilled.
