After reading Heart of Darkness, you (the student) may feel that the meaning of the story is very hazy. How do you go about making sense of a story as obscure as Heart of Darkness?
This WebQuest may be of some help. It will help you learn just how some critics have come up with their interpretations of Heart of Darkness and encourage you to develop your own critical stance on the book. On your journey toward meaning, you will follow Marlow up the Congo River, shedding light on the heart of darkness as you proceed, finally arriving at a better understanding of this
I love the dual purpose of this course. Reading the literature and exploring different critical perspectives. This is a site I will use in my Master's level Disciplinary Foundations of Literature. And I am thrilled to move beyond the discussion (which is almost inevitable) about whether Conrad's novel is "racist" or not. Some of the theories can deal with that issue appropriately--post colonial and reader response theory, for example--but it is not the only focus for discussion.

This is a wonderful and complete resource - a thoughtfully crafted webquest to guide students to analyze the well-known "Heart of Darkness" from a critical perspective - and students can each choose the critical perspective they prefer (feminism, post-colonial, deconstruction, reader-response, etc). Resources are provided for each perspective, and then questions for the assignment are ready-made for you. Just assign it and grade their papers :o)
