  • This is Okonkwo, he is a successful and respected man in his village. But of course not everyone is perfect. Okonkwo has a very short-temper and resolves everything with violence.
  • Okonkwo didn't have any patience for anybody, he'd get angry very quickly. "He had a slight stammer and whenever he was angry and could not get his words out quickly enough, he would use his fists." (pg. 4)
  • He would even angry during such a sacred week. "And when she returned he beat her very heavily. In his anger he had forgotten that it was the week of peace." (pg. 29)
  • He would get angry over simple things. "Okonkwo's second wife had merely cut off a few leaves off it to wrap some food, and she said so. Without further argument Okonkwo gave her a sound beating and left her and her only daughter weeping." (pg. 38)
  • People who seem weak make him lose his calmness and he resorts to anger. "Nwoye overheard it and burst into tears, whereupon his father beat him heavily." (pg. 57)
  • He's quick to anger. "'Is that enough?' she asked when she had poured in about half of the water in the bowl. 'A little more ... I said a little. Are you deaf?' Okonkwo roared at her." (pg. 85)
