Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse Now are two very separate entities, but in my view, Coppola played with the ideas from the original text in some meaningful ways. Please choose one aspect (a character, motif, scene, theme, etc.) of the text, and comment on how Coppola adapted it in the film. Include your evaluation of the success of this adaptation as well as a description and analysis of the ways in which the text and movie interact.
Please post your response before class on Friday 15 May. The assignment has a weight of 3 (standard 3 / standard 5 / standard 6). Please respond directly to this post (choose “leave a reply”). There is no specific minimum or maximum length, but try to aim for 250 – 500 words. You may wish to read the posts by last year’s eleventh graders and continue the discussion begun by one of them, but feel free to ignore these if you prefer.
