“Nwoye turned around to walk into the inner compound when his father, suddenly overcome with fury, sprang to his feet and gripped him by the neck.”
“Perhaps he was not his son. No! He could not be. His wife had played him false. He would teach her!”
This reveals how the fear that Okonkwo had that Nwoye would abandon the clan and convert to christianity, lead Okonkwo to become furious and choke his son.
Okonkwo choking his son demonstrates how his false view of masculinity affected others.
“Dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his machete and cut him down, he was afraid of being thought weak.”
This demonstrates the fear of Nwoye being weak and not like Okonkwo, this brings out his fallacious views of masculinity and delusional thoughts of Nwoye not being his son.
Okonkwo was so ashamed of his son that his mind created thoughts about Nwoye not being his own biological son.
The machete that Okonkwo used to help murder his adopted son Ikemefuna shows how the fear of him looking weak affects him and others.
This shows how Okonkwo does not want to be seen as weak so bad that he would have a hand in killing his own son.
