One way the reader can tell that Lewis is trying to put fear into the son is by the way the father is talking about the “Jabberwocky” and everything that the creature can do and what it looks like.

After talking to the commissioner in a heated conversation Achebe writes, “Okonkwo 's machete descended twice and the man 's head lay beside his uniformed body” (Achebe 185) thinking that this act would have the other tribe members in the fight with him. However this was not the case, the other Igbo people enjoyed the white people 's religion and were sick of Okonkwo 's unsympathetic ways of doing things. This lack of help and series of unfortunate events led to Okonkwo 's demise written out by Achebe as “Then they came to the tree from which Okonkwo 's body was dangling and the stopped dead” (Achebe 187).

In conclusion, in the book Things Fall Apart, Okonkwo 's life falls apart at the seams because of his unsympathetic acts toward his family and the Ibo people.
