Use this presentation throughout your unit or lecture series on Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. The first part of the slideshow provides a brief biography of Conrad, and is followed by a discussion on his more prominent themes. The last part of the presentation could accompany a class reading of Heart of Darkness, as it discusses key plot points and quotations from the novel.
An interesting glimpse of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, this presentation provides several pertinent quotes from the novel to support various themes. In the context of a larger unit, this powerpoint could be helpful; however, on its own it's simply a series of quotes from the book with a few quotes of critique at the end. A teacher could take advantage of the provided quotes to organize a discussion in class.
A good review after your class reads Parts 1 and 2 of Conrad's Heart of Darkness, these slides provide thematic details and important plot points, substantiated by relevant quotes from the text. This presentation could be easily broken up into at least two different lectures, as slides 1-18 cover Part 1 of the novel and slides 19-31 detail Part 2. The points made in the presentation could lead to a great class discussion and even an essay topic or two.
