      The novelist Chinua Achebe criticized the book in his lecture “An Image of Africa: Racism in Conrad’s Heart of Darkness.” Do you agree or disagree that the book is racist? Why? Does the book have a hero? If so, who is it and why? (For this question, if no one brings up the idea of Kurtz as a hero, I ask them to defend this idea.).   Wrapping up this week’s National Poetry Month feature is Thick and Dazzling Darkness: Religious Poetry in a Secular Age, by Peter O’Leary. In this work, O’Leary reads a diverse set of writers to argue for the importance of religious poetry in twentieth- and twenty-first-century American literature.
