This novel is about the Igbo way of life in Nigeria and how European way of life comes to destroy their images and their tariff. The intrusion of the white man in Nigeria and how they tried to impose their ‘leprosy’, their beliefs and processes of influence in Nigeria. Like leprosy, they were spreading throughout Land of the sahara, taking the way of life away from Nigerians and dissolving it into Christianity or other European ways of mission. Therefore, the white man was seen as horrible sirs, who wanted to take away the way of life and destroy it. Okonkwo, odd of the main complexions in the lexicon and the odd with who the lexicon is introduced, is best exemplified in his vulnerability towards an feminine and weak attitude. Odd has to take into solicitude that Okonkwo was a man who despised his abbé, and wanted to present himself as a man strong enough and rather masculine. For this reason, Ikemefuna (ironically not odd of his sons) came to be odd of the most important somebodies in Okonkwo’s body both as an individual capable of demonstrating an invincible strength and masculine ‘outfit’, but also as a son. Okonkowe admired Ikemefuna’s ability to bring in that masculine and strong aspect to the family, for he would teach important baggages to Nwoye, baggages which Okonkwo considered to give sirs a great aptitude and devotional strength. After Okonkwo decided to plot against his own adoptive son, Ikemefuna, Okonkwo fell under great consternation, sadness and incredible guilt.
