Okonkwo's LIfe

  Okonkwo is an influential clan leader in Umuofia. Since early childhood, Okonkwo’s embarrassment about his lazy, and careless father, Unoka, has taught him to succeed. Okonkwo’s hard work and prowess in war have earned him a position of high status in his clan, and he attains wealth to support three wives and their children. Okonkwo’s flaw is that he is terrified of looking weak like his father. As a result, he behaves poorly bringing a great deal of trouble and sorrow upon himself and his family.
