For Chinua Achebe i would like to say he will always stay alive in his words and works...he justifies being the son of his native soil... though i have read only one work Things Fall Apart, still there is a desire to read more of his works...his marked features are the use of language and the adages of his oral culture...i love these: WHEN A MAN SAYS YES, HIS CHI SAYS YES TOO.......... & PROVERBS ARE THE PALM OILS WITH WHICH WORDS ARE EATEN... - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - a great writer of life and attitudes! ! ! and this is a great poem! ! !
