      Chinua Achebe was born on 16th November 1930 (died 21st March 2013). He is a Nigerian novelist, poet, professor, and critic.[2] His first novel Things Fall Apart (1958) was considered his magnum opus, and is the most widely read book in modern African literature.

      Achebe is a titled Igbo chieftain, his novels focus on the traditions of Igbo society, the effect of Christian influences, and the clash of Western and traditional African values during and after the colonial era. His style relies heavily on the Igbo oral tradition, and combines straightforward narration with representations of folk stories, proverbs, and oratory. He also published a number of short stories, children’s books, and essay collections. From 2009 until his death, he served as a professor at Brown University in the United States.
