1) Contrast the ways in which Africa and the Africans are depicted in Achebe’s  Things Fall Apart  as  opposed to Conrad’s  Heart of Darkness. The natives in Heart of Darkness were portrayed as savages and uncivilized but in Things Fall Apart their culture and societal organization and structure is displayed in detail. Their society has many rules and certain intricacies that the imperialists did not know about. 2) Can the culture and social organization of the Ibos be characterized as primitive or uncivilized as those  in the Congo are viewed by Marlowe in  The Heart of Darkness ?   If so, in what ways?  In what ways does  Achebe’s account differ from Conrad’s in this regard? It is uncivilized in relation to Europe but their society had their own government, culture, and order which  makes it a civilized society. Though they are not technologically advanced or Christian, requirements to be  civilized by Europeans, their society was by no means primitive or barbaric.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
