His point of view is related in the study to that of others including the omniscient one, whose view enables the reader to see this novel for what it essentially is; a philosophical one offering the author’s views on modern African society. Implicit in this whole exercise is a tribute by Achebe to the achievement of Nigerian poet - turned - civil war soldier, Christopher Okigbo. Evi- dence, internal and external adduced for this claim.
