Okonkwo’s Grief There are five stages of grief that a human experiences when faced with any type of breakup, and these stages play a significant role in Chinua Achebe’s book, Things Fall Apart. Okonkwo, the main character, suffers a breakup with his tribe when his gun explodes and kills another member of the tribe. Killing another member of the tribe is a grievous offense, and no matter how unintentional, the killing results in seven years of exile. Torn away from his tribe, friends, rank, and future as a great leader, Okonkwo undergoes the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The first stage in grief is denial, when a person hopes that the breakup was not real or only momentary, giving themselves time to adjust to the situation.
