Two Readings of Heart of Darkness

Here’s a link “back to” the Imperial Archive and a brief analysis of Achebe’s critique of the language used in Conrad’s novella as “racist”; the topic is central to our classroom conversation and investigation of the “fairness” of Achebe’s indictment. Please read and comment on the information linked here. Questions and possible response topics will be developed during class discussion; feel free to organize your ideas in reaction to this information and begin posting them in response to this link: http://www.qub.ac.uk/imperial/africa/Conrad-readings.htm
