A few weeks ago, I went to dinner with my husband, one of our friends, and our friend's parents. Since I had just returned from the AP Literature Exam reading, I was full of ideas about teaching in the fall and books I wanted to add to my curriculum. Our friend's dad is an English professor and absolutely brilliant. His name is Dr. Hamner. I love talking to him and could sit and listen to him for hours. He has traveled and taught all over the world and is just fascinating. I told him I was thinking of teaching Heart of Darkness to my juniors. Dr. Hamner published a book about Heart of Darkness! Of course he did! The book is Joseph Conrad: Third World Perspectives published 1990 by Three Continents Press. Dr. Hamner gave me a copy and I am overwhelmed by the brilliance in this book. I can't wait to share it with my students. If you teach, are a fan of Joseph Conrad, or need critical analysis for part of your research, this book is perfect for you.
