English 528: Teaching Literary Criticism
By Jacob Bennett
*Author's Note: For Dr. Nicholas A. Sharp
While writing beneath the shade of a Baobab tree— you see, the Baobab doesn’t bear leaves nine months of the year and is native to the island of Madagascar. Dreamworks made a children’s film about Madagascar somewhat recently about some animals who escaped from the Central Park Zoo and—the Central Park Zoo was really better established when they opened an addition on it in 1934, which was right around the time that Benny Goodman’s “Moonglow” was getting quite a bit of air play. And Goodman, as we all know, had quite the influence on pianist Teddy Wilson, who studied music at Tuskegee Institute, established by Booker T. Washington—not to be confused with “Booker T”, the professional wrestler, who is six foot three – surprisingly, about the same height as the actor Jeff Goldblum, more recently known for his role as “Deputy Kovacs” in the film The Grand Budapest Hotel, directed by Wes Anderson—not to be confused, of course, with Wes Craven, who directed A Nightmare on Elm Street, which brings us swimmingly into “The horror! The horror!”—so, let’s discuss these writing prompts on Heart of Darkness that you all could use with your future students.
