Both Achebe and Mahfouz wrote about the traditional ways of their people, including their religious views. How are the authors the same or different in their view of traditional native religion and beliefs? Should cultures try to retain their native ways and religious rituals, or should native cultures adapt to progress, science, and industrialization? How do you think Achebe and Mahfouz would respond to these questions?
