English 110 discussion – 12
Select a major event in Part 3 and use psychoanalytic or postcolonial theory to analyze it. Use at least one concept from the theory (in bold) in your response. Also make sure to tie in what we know from Parts 1 and 2. For example, if you are focusing on Okonkwo’s response to the colonialists, take into consideration what we know about him from Parts 1 and 2. Analyze specific passages (with citations) in your response.
This analysis can be used in your research paper if it fits.

Respond in a structured, focused response. This isn’t a free-write in which you just jot down thoughts. Write clear, grammatical sentences, in coherent paragraphs, and use an appropriate tone. Your response should show that you are familiar with the texts. Do not offer a long summary or background information unless it is related to the question.
