Every culture has their different customs and practices. In Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Okonkwo, the protagonist acts in a very masculine way, always trying to be strong and powerful because that is how his culture raises men to be. He must never show softness or weakness in fear of looking like “a girl”. When the Christian missionaries arrive at his tribe, the cultural collision is too much for him and it frightens him and causes him to lose his identity. Okonkwo beats his own son senseless, and he kills himself. ha crazy brp wahtr hey ojdsf ioewhf iodisuf8 oisdfh.
