Black Hawk evokes emotion in his people to unite them together in his surrender. Black Hawk states “The white men are bad schoolmasters; they carry false looks, and deal in false actions; they smile in the face of the poor Indian to cheat him; they shake them by the hand to
He explains to the tribes using historical facts about how the white men came into their existence. They came to their tribes and after being nursed back to health, the white man wanted some land. That wasn’t enough for them. Now they want a whole hunting ground. He is using this imagery to get his audience to understand that the white men are greedy.

Kurtz in the heart of the Congo, Marlow faces a version of himself that succumbed to the ruleless wilderness. Mr. Kurtz is Marlow’s alter ego: when Marlow witnesses the native African people’s behavior, he wants to join them, but he “had no time,” whereas Mr. Kurtz is alone with the native people for a long period of time which causes him to change who he once was (44). In order to secure their ivory, he uses brutal methods such as putting the heads of those who disobey him on “the stakes” with their faces “turned to [Kurtz’s] house” (71). In a wilderness with no societal rules defining what is wrong or right, Mr. Kurtz loses himself and becomes a tyrant. With no consequences for his actions, Mr. Kurtz makes himself a god, taking “a high seat amongst the devils of the land” (60).
At the beginning, the two works have plentiful the same "story" (Dorall 303). Heart of Darkness tells a story about Marlow, a young captain. He reserves a commission to research Kurtz who is an ivory trader and works for a Belgian trading company and loses in the Congo jungles. Apocalypse Now 's background is Vietnam War. An American captain Willard gets a mission to find and kill Kurtz who is an unsound US Special Forces colonel.
Marlow tells his shipmates on the boat (the Nelly) that the natives passed him “within six inches, without a glance, with that complete, deathlike indifference of unhappy savages” (16). Marlow’s story of his experience exhibits how the Europeans captured the natives and forced them to work; to strip their home land of its resources and natural beauty. When the Europeans colonize Africa, they do not want to help the African people, but exploit them and put them to work for their own desire of obtaining ivory, rubber, and other resources and goods. As the Europeans imperialize the area, they do not build culture or assist in development of the Congo region, but break down culture as they enslave the natives and take away their rights, along with stripping the area of resources and natural, earthly beauty, which is conveyed through the cruel physical treatment towards the natives. This treatment is also presented through the literary devices that Conrad decides to use to reveal the experiences of the natives to the
ORIGINAL SCENE: In this essay the second scene of the play Antigone (Sophocles 1986) will be modified to fit in present day South Africa.

' 'There they were, a couple of men, alone together in isolated frontier country, for weeks or sometimes months at a time, ' ' says Randy Jones, 53, who was the stetson-wearing, lasso-throwing gay cowboy in the Village People and who acted as an adviser on the film. ' ' The thought must have passed through their minds, even if they didn 't act on it, because men are sexy animals. If that wasn 't the case, there wouldn 't be so much homosexual sex in prison. ' 'There is growing evidence to support Jones 's theory.

On December 21, 2012, Los Angeles Times published “Let There Be Dark” adapted from Paul Bogard. In this article, Paul persuades his audience that darkness should be preserved by using evidence, reasoning and persuasive elements. Paul uses the natural environment as evidence to persuade his readers that darkness should be preserved. For example, Bogard states in paragraph 4 “The rest of the world depends on darkness as well, including nocturnal and crepuscular species of birds, insects, mammals, fish and reptiles.” This is convincing evidence because he explains the importance of darkness in the everyday lives of many different species in the world and the absence of this darkness would lead to an unstable ecosystem.
