I attached the story
Read “Dead Men’s Path”. This highly compact story is just loaded with themes:
How does this story demonstrate Achebe’s comment that “Africans live at the crossroads of culture”?
Discuss the collision between progress and tradition. Is this the central conflict? Who has “narrow” views? What are they?
Discuss the irony of the last sentence of the opening par.
What you think of Obi’s wife? What is the significance of her “initiating the woman’s magazine she reads”?
What might the headmaster have done differently to avoid the conflict? How could the eagle and the hawk perch? How is this Achebe’s metaphoric or symbolic way of stating the theme?
