In Chapter 3, Nwakibie explains to Okonkwo that he refuses to assist many young men with sharecropping. He uses the following proverb as justification for his actions: “Eneke the bird says that since men have learned to shoot without missing, he has learned to fly without perching”(22). What does this proverb say about the elders’ perspective of the younger generation? How does this proverb relate to American culture?
