Found Poetry assignment for Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad


Heart of Darkness is broken up into three sections—and so, your poem will also be. It is up to you to decide how each section of your poem will represent or connect with each section of Conrad’s novel. This can be based around theme, choosing different speakers or subjects for each section—the list could go on, but it should be carefully done.

T.S. Eliot wrote a poem called
“The Hollow Men” which is constructed around Conrad’s novel. We are also going to look at his poems “The Hippopotamus” and “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” for stylistic and thematic models of writing. Modernism (not to be confused with Contemporary writing—which comes after post-modernism) is one of the greatest difficulties for students on the AP test.
