" "Gift inscription dated 1 Feb 66 to Marta Rado, (who was a senior lecturer in languages at Latrobe University, ) from Edward Morgan to celebrate a very happy visit to the press at Kingswood. (Kingswood is where William Heinemann printed their books). " "With moving simplicity, using to great effect the traditional dialogue and forms of address of the Igbo society, this first novel tells its human story in terms of classical tragedy. The gods are ever at hand to demand allegiance and to punish remorselessly human offences and frailties. This is not a novel of the conflicts of cultures: there are no white men, no European values to disturb the old truths. Human society is orderly and predictable except when the gods are wronged.
