The fifth important and unique contribution Achebe made to modern African and world literature is a literary device I call the art of purposeful complexity. The “purposeful” before the word “complexity” is intended to distinguish it from the cacophony of imagery and verbiage that, unfortunately, all too many modernist and post-modernist writers of fiction have gotten into the habit of mistaking for literature. Purposeful complexity is the literary technique of deliberately weaving together into a quilted fabric an impressive tapestry of complementing, conflicting, confirming, confounding, hopeful and disappointing stories of heroic and flawed characters, motives, aspirations, and outcomes, tying them together into a delicately balanced, ironic and powerfully evocative narrative.

Allegory is defined in lecture as a symbolic story which refers to a photograph called The Two Ways of Life. This particular photograph was produced in 1857 by Oscar Rejlander and is 17 inches by 30 inches in size and was first exhibited in Manchester England in 1857. This photograph represents two young men in the middle which seem to be heading in different directions.

These people are giving into what the Victorians thought was wicked.
Thesis: My thesis will revolve around two critics; Chinua Achebe and Caryl Phillips and their critical reception of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness. The focus will be on the two postcolonial writers regarding their history; a history of suffering because of their skin color and their experience of being confronted to a new society and the impact of it. In fact, the Nigerian writer experienced colonialism under the British rule and its consequences. The Kittitian writer, on the other hand, belongs to the second generation of immigrants in Britain and experienced the feeling of being an outsider and understood the fragility of identity.
Oscar Wild's play, "The Importance of Being Earnest", mainly revolves around the moral and social values of the Victorian society about marriage, gender, social status and morality. The play generally takes a comical tone in exploring the lifestyles of the people and the social values upheld at the time. Most reviewers argue that Parker's adaption of the play did not quite focus on the key concerns and comedic elements of the play. The most noticeable differences in Parker's adaption of Wild's play was lack of humor from the script to the movie, the cutting and adding of different scenes, the understanding of the Victorian era and the intended target audience.

“I’m going to tell him! I’m going to do it! Today is the day!” I shout to myself as I zip through the backstreets in an effort to make it to class on time. The day is warm, the sunshine smiling, and the wind carries my body just right.
