The oracle and the bull are synthesized, metamorphosed, laced, and condensed to form an alchemy which produces a cohesive communal community as the end result. This African rhetoric displays a language that is innocent, unlike the Western European rhetoric where language dramatizes multiple voices. This critical text focuses on Achebes rhetoric from the Aristotelian style.
