Available ‘Thing Land Apart' mcdougal Chinua Achebe takes a type of a general voice/spirit narrator effect on items. The narrator it seems type of is previously mentioned everybody in the story telling it by an outsider's view, though it takes on a spirit aspect in the fact that this can describe some character types feelings, and thoughts. Oknokwo, Ikemefuna, and Ekwefi were three character types that helped tell the story and give perception on the Igbo society through thoughts and actions. The British missionary, Brown, helped us find out about the English missionaries in the story. The narrator helped Brown support us purchase missionaries, by simply letting all of us into his thoughts and sort of knowing him better as a missionary to learn where his determination was coming from. Throughout the account you notice Ekwefie has a very secure mothering character in her. She does whatever the girl can to please her daughter, Ezinma. " Ezinma was an only child at the center of her single mother's world” Site 73. Ekwefie felt her duty was going to please Ezinma. Ekwefie may have this kind of strong feelings towards her only little girl, because Ezinma was in simple fact her 10th child. All nine othersw had passed away as babies. A field in this book that details the mothering nature of Ekwefie may be the one in Section 9 where it covers er supplying her daughter eggs though she was told to never give children eggs as it makes them want to steal. One more statement in the book that explains Ekwefies persona is the assertion made on page 73 " very often it was Ezinma whom decided what her mother should put together. ” Not many children had the advantage of choosing what meals were well prepared in the home. Ekwefie is considered a very lovely, caring, and nurturing heart and soul, although in addition, she may be marked a " push-over” by simply today's culture. She seemed to sort of offer her girl everything the lady wanted.
