Chinua Achebe is considered the father of African literature in English, the writer who 'opened the magic casements of African fiction' for an international readership. Following the 50th anniversary of the publication of his ground-breaking Things Fall Apart, Everyman republish Achebe's first and most famous novel alongside No Longer at Ease and Arrow of God, under the collective title The African Trilogy. In Things Fall Apart the individual tragedy of Okonkwo, 'strong man' and tribal elder in the Nigeria of the 1890s is intertwined with the transformation of traditional Igbo society under the impact of Christianity and colonialism. In No Longer at Ease, Okonkwo's grandson, Obi, educated in England, returns to a civil-service job in colonial Lagos, only to clash with the ruling elite to which he now believes he belongs. Arrow of God is set in the 1920s and explores the conflict from the two points of view - often, but not always, opposing - ofEzuelu, an Igbo priest, and Captain Winterbottom, a British district officer. In spare and lucid prose,Achebe tellsa universal tale of personal and moral struggle in a changing world which continues to resonate in Africa today and has captured the imaginations of readers everywhere.

Der Afrika-Roman, der die moderne afrikanische Literatur begründete und die Weltliteratur prägte – endlich in neuer Übersetzung! Chinua Achebe erzählt von Verrat und Rache, von Leidenschaften, die keine Ruhe finden, und von Sehnsüchten, die keine Zukunft haben. Okonkwo, stark und jähzornig, stösst sich an den strengen Stammesregeln und zerbricht an dem Regime der britischen Kolonialherren. In seinem Meisterwerk beschreibt Achebe den Konflikt einer archaischen Kultur in einer Sprache, die rituell-sprichwörtlich, dokumentarisch und elementar poetisch ist: Mit diesem Roman erhielt der Kontinent eine Stimme.

Chinua Achebe - seine Essays zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch ›Mein Vater und ich‹, ›Meine Töchter‹ - in 17 persönlichen, polemischen und politischen Essays betrachtet Chinua Achebe den Bogen seines Lebens. Kein Autor hat die Signatur, mit der ihn Afrika prägte, so deutlich beschrieben, analysiert und um seine Anerkennung gekämpft wie Achebe. In dem zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch vorliegenden Band erzählt er von seiner Kindheit, seiner Herkunft und seinem Erbe: von dem Kind in Nigeria bis zu dem Verkehrsunfall, der ihn über zwanzig Jahre an den Rollstuhl fesselte. »Ohne das Werk von Chinua Achebe wäre die afrikanische Literatur überhaupt nicht vorstellbar. Seine Leidenschaft, sein scharfer Geist, seine glasklare Prosa sind unübertrefflich.« Toni Morrison

Blazing the Path. Fifty Years of Things Fall Apart is a collection of new perspectives on Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart, a novel that was first published in 1958 and which has since become a classic of world literature. Aside from opening up the novel to new interpretive strategies of well established literary critics, and clarifying some past ones, this collection of essays repositions Things Fall Apart as a literary piece with interdisciplinary and multidimensional appeal. The volume fulfills the objective of using the novel to interrogate the colonial and pre-colonial African past with Nigeria's post-modern present, and projects the country into a future that looks to literature for a deeper understanding of where Nigeria is as a citizen of an emerging global village.

Marriage was ordained by God for the good of spouses and for procreation. But how often does marriage turn out to bring unhappiness to partners! And how often do even happy marriages end up childless! Among the Igbo of South-eastern Nigeria, to whom offspring is the chief goal of marriage, childlessness leads often to unhappiness in marriage and not less often to the break-up of marriages or to polygamy. In this work, the author expounds the importance of marriage and its practice among the Igbo. He explains the importance of children in Igbo understanding of marriage and identifies childlessness as the key factor which could endanger (and sometimes do endanger) the Igbo acceptance of the Catholic doctrine of the indissolubility of marriage. Using the relevant clauses of the Code of Canon Law, the author explains in detail the Catholic understanding of marriage and the goals of the catholic doctrine on marriage. He writes of the possibility of marriage impediments due to impotence and sterility (that lead to childlessness) and recommends not only a thorough pre-marriage preparation but also a continual formation of marriage couples as efforts that could check the increasing rate of divorce and polygamy due to childlessness. But the author knows that childlessness can still occur despite all precautions. He therefore recommends adoption (instead of polygamy) as the ultimate panacea to childlessness in marriage. The author condemns in unmistakable terms the mentality among the Igbo which blames and traumatizes the woman in cases of childlessness.

Akwaeke Emezi erkundet in ihrem von Kritik und Publikum gefeierten Debütroman SÜSSWASSER wie es ist, ein gespaltenes Ich zu haben. Und sie zeigt gleichzeitig, wie wir alle unsere verschiedenen Identitäten laufend konstruieren. Ein Buch von wilder Energie und schlangenartiger Eleganz - die Geburt einer neuen ungebändigten literarischen Stimme. Ada wächst im Süden Nigerias auf. Sie ist ein sprunghaftes und schwieriges Kind und ein Quell steter Sorge für ihre Eltern. Adas verschiedene Ichs kommen immer wieder zum Vorschein und rücken vor allem nach ihrem Umzug in die USA immer stärker in den Vordergrund. Nach einem traumatischen Übergriff nimmt Adas Leben eine dunkle und gefährliche Wendung. "SÜSSWASSER ist reine Perfektion: sexy, sinnlich, magisch, weise. Eines der umwerfendsten Debüts, die ich je gelesen habe." Taiye Selasi, GUARDIAN "Außergewöhnlich und mutig, poetisch und verstörend." NEW YORK TIMES "Eine ungeheuer kraftvolle und sehr besondere Einwanderungsgeschichte." Edwidge Danticat, NEW YORKER

An Introduction to Religious and Theological Studies walks students through topical issues to be encountered in the study of the Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as these religions encounter other religions in the context of the wider ecumenism. The text is written from a Christian point of view and aims at helping students understand that to be Christian is to be ecumenical. African Traditional Religions (ATRs) has been included in this survey to provide background for the religious traditions and cultures of peoples of Africa as Christianity moves inexorably southward. The book has been written with undergraduate general education students in mind--including meeting the needs of those in seminaries and theological institutes.

Chinua Achebes prophetischer Afrika-Roman Mit ›Einer von uns‹ nimmt Chinua Achebe den Militärputsch vorweg, der Nigeria 1966, nur Tage nach der Veröffentlichung des Romans, in einen blutigen Bürgerkrieg stürzte. Der junge, idealistische Odili besucht seinen ehemaligen Lehrer Chief Naga, der nun Kulturminister ist und sich - vordergründig ein Mann des Volkes - listig an seinem Land bereichert. Die moralische Kluft zwischen den beiden Männern erscheint zunächst riesig. Doch in der »Fressen-und-gefressen-werden«-Atmosphäre kollidiert Odilis Idealismus bald mit seinen persönlichen Begierden – und die private und politische Rivalität des Jungen und des Alten droht das ganze Land in Chaos zu stürzen. ›Einer von uns‹ ist Chinua Achebes vierter Roman und zählt zu den wichtigsten seines Werkes. Nun liegt er endlich in deutscher Übersetzung vor. »Chinua Achebe ist ein magischer Schriftsteller – einer der besten des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts« Margaret Atwood

Literacy researchers and educators are currently involved in exciting international literacy projects. However, many in the field are not aware of these initiatives. In compiling this edited volume, our intent is to provide a resource book for university instructors and research faculty with examples of international literacy projects and what was learned from the projects. Chapter contributors offer stories of real people who collaborate across nations to exchange ideas, promote literacy development, and increase global understandings. The literacy initiatives presented in this book show how literacy colleagues have provided opportunities for students and educators of different countries to communicate in meaningful ways. Through international literacy projects and research, participants work to forge relationships based on mutual respect, despite their differing cultures and languages. They see their work as based on the mutual connectedness to the human community.
