The research work, furthermore, explores the themes and style used by the author in his novel Things Fall Apart as a way of bringing into fore the rich cultural values and traditions of the traditional Igbo society vis-a –vis the clash of cultural values through British imperialism as portrayed by Chinua Achebe in the novel.
