When Obi Okonkwoâgrandson of Okonkwo, the main character inÂ Things Fall Apartâreturns to Nigeria from England in the 1950s, his foreign education separates him from his African roots. He has become a part of a ruling elite whose corruption he finds repugnant. Forced to choose between traditional values and the demands of a changing world, he finds himself trapped between the expectations of his family, his village, and the colonial world.
Showing a man lost in cultural limbo, and a nation entering a new age of disillusionment,Â No Longer at EaseÂ concludes Achebe's remarkable trilogy, following Things Fall Apart and Arrow of God. Together these works imagine an African community upended by the forces of colonialism from the first arrival of the British to the waning days of empire.
