Chinua Achebe on “Heart of Darkness”

By the way — I was meaning to give this to you last time we talked about it, but here’s a link to what Chinua Achebe, a major Nigerian author, had to say about racism in the novel “Heart of Darkness.” It’s very interesting and very pertinent, and I wonder what you think of it. (Some similar thoughts occurred to me on reading it for our discussion, and I am happy to say some of what you said in class reflected similar thinking…)
