From reading the Novel “Heart of Darkness” by Joseph Conrad
Write a 750-1000 word essay which demonstrates how your novel follows the steps of narrative structure (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution/denouement).
- Include an outline and Works Cited page where you will list the novel you are discussing.
- You must use MLA format, but you are not to use outside sources for this paper; this is your own analysis.
- Cite examples from your text in support of your argument, either as direction quotations or paraphrases.
- This is not simply a summary of the story. Instead, you should identify how each part of the narrative structure develops in the story.
Do not confuse this essay with your research paper. This essay is totally your own thinking from studying the steps of narrative structure and reading the novel. Your research paper reflects the conclusions you draw from information gleaned in your research and is on a selected topic other than narrative structure.
