  4. 4. Character The main character should be realistic , true to themselves at all times, true to type, must be logical, and idealized. Okonkwo fits the realistic and true to type characeristic because he is seen as a “hard” . He is very stern. He is also consistent with his mindset. Okonkwo isn’t logical, he reacts before he thinks.
  5. 5. Thought Thought is where something is proved to be or not to be. In Things Fall Apart, the district commisioner realized that changing the tribe WAS wrong.
  6. 6. Diction Diction should express the meaning in words which are appropriate to the plot. There should be metaphors. In the book there are tons of metaphors. The diction used in narration helps to show how poetic the tribe’s words are.
  7. 7. Song or Melody Aristotle argues that the Chorus should be fully integrated into the play like an actor; choral odes should not be “mere interludes,” but should contribute to the unity of the plot. There aren’t any melodys in Things Fall Apart.
