    Chinua Achebe's criticism of Conrad's Heart of Darkness

    I need som help with a Discussion question Here are some of the question we have to answer.
    Do you agree with Chinua Achebe's criticism of Corand's "Heart of Darkness" in "An Image of Africa"? Why or why not
    Should we hold Corad's novella responsible for its characterizations and perspectives toward Africa/Africans?
    Should we questio the status of the novella as canonical (classic) literature?
    I need so help putting some of this information into a essay form
    help please

    oh wow I can't believe no one responded

    I had to write about this, I think Achebe is the one who's racist, personally.

    i totally agree with you. he just wrote images of africar for the sake of complaining about the way western societies tend to diminish africans in general and his text is more political than anything else.
