Arrow of God by Chinua Achebe ISBN 13: 9780435900168

ISBN 10: 0435900161

Paperback; London: Heinemann, 1974; ISBN-13: 978-0435900168

Ezeulu, headstrong chief priest of the god Ulu, is worshipped by the six villages of Umuaro. But he is beginning to find his authority increasingly under threat - from his rivals in the tribe, from those in the white government and even from his own family. Yet he still feels he must be untouchable - surely he is an arrow in the bow of his God? Armed with this belief, he is prepared to lead his people, even if it means destruction and annihilation. Yet the people will not be so easily dominated. Spare and powerful, Arrow of God is an unforgettable portrayal of the loss of faith, and the struggle between tradition and change. Continuing the epic saga of the community in Things Fall Apart, it is the second volume of Achebe's African trilogy, and is followed by No Longer at Ease.

Covers rubbed, partial cup ring to front cover. Not from a library. 287 pages.In this novel, Africa's best-known writer describes the conflict between old and new in its most poignant aspect: the personal struggle between father and son. Set in the Ibo heartland of eastern Nigeria, Arrow of God has as its central figure a merry yet dignified chief priest who epitomizes the spirituality and ceremony of village life. When faced with the disintegration of the old order under the impact of British colonial authority, he finds that his own authority and the allegiance of his son are at stake as well. The subsequent collision of opposing forces makes tragedy inevitable.
