  • Hello Priya,
    You have prepared a package of short summery, Introduction to the characters, themes including cited works in your presentation on “Things fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.” And let me tell you very honestly that the student like me, who knew nothing about this particular text under African Literature, got its overall idea within a few minutes. Good selection of slides and bifurcation of points.
    Thank you.
    Best luck.
