Abstract:Investigation of the precise affects of the relationship between African literature and the psychopathology of language upon the characteristic themes and individual development of Chinua Achebe. Achebe demonstrates his preoccupation with language, not simply as a communicative device, but as a total cultural experience. Language is the embodiment of its civilization and therefore represents or dramatizes modes of perception within its cultural grouping. Notes.
