Our Title Bout
Conrad vs. Achebe
After reading Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad and “An Image of Africa: Racism in Conrad’s Heart of Darkness,” which bandwagon do you jump on? Are you willing yet to take sides in this much-disputed, much-critiqued battle of writers?
Consider the following while making a significant post to http://baxterbloglhs.blogspot.com :
- What was your personal experience like while reading Heart of Darkness (HoD)? Were you offended by any of Conrad’s narrative or description? In retrospect, should you have been? Why?
- Do you agree with what Achebe argues in “An Image of Africa,” or do you take a different tack? Why?
