Who is the most significant character in the novel? Kurtz? Marlow? The unnamed narrator? Explain in detail.

This is a graded discussion. First, post your response to one of the the discussion prompts to the forum. Make sure to articulate your ideas carefully, and write about 150-200 words (you can always write more, but I will generally provide a minimum number of words). Once you have posted your response, you will be able to see your peers’ responses. Now, respond to at least two of your classmates’ comments; tell them where you may have points of agreement/disagreement with them. However, your responses must be to a prompt that is different from your own. Keep in mind, I am asking you to engage with your peers in a discussion. If a classmate leaves a response for you, feel free to respond in turn. Always make sure you base your ideas on the text and use direct quotes to support your assertions.

Discussion Prompts

  1. Who is the most significant character in the novel? Kurtz? Marlow? The unnamed narrator? Explain in detail.
  2. Kurtz is viewed differently by every character. Even his own view of his mission and identity seems to have changed. Is there one, coherent way to understand Kurtz, or does his identity hinge on the attitudes and biases of the person observing him? What might Conrad be saying about identity and perception?
  3. How does Marlow characterize Kurtz’s African lover? How does Marlow characterize Kurtz’s Intended? How are these two women similar? How are they different? How, in Marlow’s mind, do Kurtz’s African lover and his Intended represent their respective continents/civilizations? Why does Marlow lie to the Intended?
  4. What is the “darkness” that the title references?
