Chinua Achebe and Chimananda Adichie are both Nigerian writers who gain world fames from their realist novels on Nigerian society. To some degree, Adichie is the successor to Achebe, not only because they share the same origin of Ibo culture, but also for their epic novels present the society of Nigeria and the images of Africans in the English world. However, they focus on different African experiences. The subtle politics of experience can be explored through the identity of their country: Achebe emphasizes Nigerian experience in his novels while Adichie insists on her Biafran experience.
