in the story "civil Peace" jonathan iwegbu reiles on the proverb "nothing puzzles god." what significance does the proverb hold for him? does it provide an explanation for events, or is its meaning more complex?
Its meaning is undoubtedly more complex. Chinua Achebe doesn't write simple stuff! He himself is complex, and his work is complex, too. Undoubtedly, he wants his readers to think long and hard about these kinds of statements and come up with their own interpretations.
What do you think?
