"He had no patience with unsuccessful men, he had no patience with his father"
I am Okonkwo, i am a brave warrior who is respected and wealthy. I am from the Umuofia clan. I bring honor to my village unlike my father on my left who did the opposite, his name is Unoka.
I am Okonkwo's father, Unoka. I am very lazy and dont have anything to be remembered by. I owe a lot of money to people. I am also good at playing the flute.
"Okonkwo never showed any emotion openly, unless it be the emotion of anger. To show affection was a sign of weakness; the only thing worth demonstrating was strength. He therefore treated Ikemefuna as he treated everybody else—with a heavy hand. But there was no doubt that he liked the boy. Sometimes when he went to big village meetings or communal ancestral feasts he allowed Ikemefuna to accompany him, like a son, carrying his stool and his goat-skin bag. And, indeed, Ikemefuna called him father."
Ikemefuna is brought to Okonkwo to be looked after. He was taken from him home by the igbo tribe.
Ikemefuna, you will be staying with me until i get further instructions from the Igbo clan on what i should do with you.
I miss my mom and 3 year old sister
"Somehow Okonkwo could never become as enthusiastic over feasts as most people. He was a good eater and he could drink one or two fairly big gourds of palm-wine. But he was always uncomfortable sitting around for days waiting for a feast or getting over it. He would be very much happier working on his farm."
"Dad, when will the warrior's begin fighting?!"
When will this be over, I want to go back to working on my farm alone.
