    Trying to start or finish a critical essay on Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart? Writing a difficult critical essay on African literature in general? Achebe's Things Fall Apart derives its title from a line from William Butler Yeats’ poem "The Second Coming," which foretells the end of the world. And Achebe’s novel indeed foreshadows the end of a world: the incursion of the white man into the society of the African Ibo, and the subsequent dissolution of the indigenous culture. The image of things falling apart is an extremely apt one, for we learn that from the author’s point of view, Ibo culture is held together by one string -- its own traditions. This string will not break, but when pulled it will unravel, causing everything it holds together to literally fall apart..
