S: Things Fall Apart
FC: Chapters 1 and 2 Review
1: After reading chapters 1 and 2 you should have noticed the following:

3: Unoka (Okonkwo's father) is a minor character but plays a big part in Okonkwo's attitude. He was lazy and improvident and Okonkwo was ruled by his fear of becoming a failure like his father.
4: Time is described using terms like "market weeks," "moons," and "hens go to roost."
5: The art of conversation was important and Proverbs were used to make conversation more interesting.
6: Titles Men earn titles as a sign of respect | Hospitality Guests always brought kola nut and palm wine to share Laziness was considered a sign of weakness
