The need to recount the story from "within" could have been one reason for these huge abstract creations. In Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Adichie, there is a basic presentation of the peculiarities in Nigeria and in addition Africa when all is said in done, as the mainland walks in the gnawing oppressive injury of the military and rebel authorities. This angle is x-rayed past the miniaturized scale setting (families) to the full scale society (nations) as the tenants, spoke to by the guileless Kambili, see uncontrollable torment as far as they can tell of administration. We see a novel that reassesses what Izevbaye (1979) communicates as "the enlightening capacity which writing performs by tearing down the cover of advanced drawing room conduct and in vogue garments ... managing the African picture in the past or the governmental issues of the present" (African Literature Today 10, 14).

He only allows Kambili and Jaja to visit him fifteen minutes at a time. Eugene brainwashes his children into thinking that Papa Nnukwu takes part in “devilish folklore” and that the Igbo tradition is “evil”. When Eugene sees the painting of Papa Nnukwu that Kambili kept, he beats Kambili until she is hospitalized, again using violence as discipline. Eugene is very set in his ways and follows the rules of Christianity religiously, that is why when he sees Kambili eating the morning her period starts he beats the whole family, not questioning why the rules were broken or considering that there could be a reason for it. Another example of Eugene’s patriarchal role is when he orders the children to pray for forgiveness when they stay with their Papa Nnukwu for longer than fifteen minutes.
For example, some of the key aspects of extremely controlling monarchs is that there is only one ruler, you rule until you die, and that power gets passed down from generation to generation. Ivan the Terrible obtained his power not through his own hard work, but through his blood line. He ruled until he passed away, and Ivan was the only ruler. Another aspect of extremely controlling dictators is that they have complete control of society and government. At the very start of Ivan 's rule, he had two chairmen guide him in the right direction to show him how everything worked, but they were soon fired leaving Ivan the Terrible to make every decision on his own.

Purple Hibiscus begins with reference to Chinua Achebe, "Things began to fall apart at home when my brother, Jaja, did not go to communion and Papa flung his heavy missal across the room and broke the figurines on the étagère." The novel tracks this family as the chilly, icebound order begins to break down, and something new replaces it. Visiting their aunt and her three children, Kambili and Jaja get a chance to see how a more ordinary, relaxed family functions. They come to know their "heathen" grandfather, whom Eugene will not see because he insists on practicing his traditional Igbo

On the other hand, Starving is another symbol that the writer uses to represent how the family feels about Papi. Papi is starving his family of affection and love, while they all seem to desire some of Papi’s love and affection Papi seem very distant from them. Yunior disapproves completely of his father’s affair by the vomiting when he gets in the van, a van his father got to impress his mistress.

A significant piece of figurative language that the author included in the novel,” In The Time of Butterflies “ is, “I can see my hand in an endless slow-motion rise a mind all its own and come down on the astonished, made up the face(Alvarez 100).” This example of personification tells us about in the book when Minerva slapped Trujillo.

The individual under authoritarian rule has a similar experience. The individual is pressured through threats and fear tactics to exhibit the “body”, or the authoritarian values, and to abandon the “soul”, or the individual values. The authoritarian rule requires unquestioning obedience much like Kyu-ho’s body forces him to respond aimlessly to its needs. This is not only an exhausting endeavor for the individual, but it is also detrimental to the health of the individual. After abandoning his soul altogether, Kyu-ho begins to experience further negative and deteriorating effects on his body.
