His father on the other hand is not at all pleased with Nwoye’s decision to join Christianity. Although Okonkwo is disappointed in his son’s choice he does not act on it.

A story can be told in many ways: the sequence of events might be reordered, the narrating time of the events might be different to the narrated time, the person telling the story can be different, we may have more or less information about the characters and their feelings, etc. Nevertheless, in this essay we will focus exclusively on the question ‘Who tells the story?’, or in other words, the point of view in which the story is told. Furthermore, we will display some of the features that this kind of narrator has when telling the story. In order to do so, we will provide examples from The Awakening to prove each characteristic that has being defined. In addition, we will discuss the effects that these characteristics may have on the theme of the ‘awakening’ and how they allow the reader to have a broader vision of the character’s change of ideas and thoughts.

Memory in a way is bringing back of cultural history. As pointed out by Lindbladh individual and collective memory is enigmatic, fragmented, intimately connected to our senses and feelings and thereby in need of an alternative epistemology, challenging traditional definitions of knowledge and truth. In the introduction to the anthology The Poetics of Memory, Thomas Wagenbaur defines memory on the one hand as storage and on the other hand as a story. In the agreement with current trends in memory research, he underlines the importance of the narrative and poetic dimensions

When a story is written, the content lasts longer and can be revisited, however each reader perceives the meaning of the story and the details through their own experience. Stories began through oral tradition. Indigenous people have told stories throughout their histories, and those stories reveal their past, as well as their current realities and identities.

These deformities make the characters feel outcast from society, or not compareable to others, therefore scuplting their characters throughout the novel.
