Heart Of Darkness
Joseph Conrad develops themes of personal power, individual responsibility, and social justice in his book Heart of Darkness. His book has all the themes that make the book an adventure story- mystery, exotic setting, escape, suspense, an unexpected attack. Chinua Achebe concluded, "Conrad, on the other hand, is undoubtedly one of the great stylists of modern fiction and a good storyteller into the bargain" (Achebe 252). Yet, despite Conrad's great story telling ability, he has also been viewed ...

The painting suggests many of the defining ideas of the time such as manifest destiny and the idea of nature being next to god. Twilight in the Wilderness is the perfect America...
