Reviews for New Imperialism
greenGalilee chapter 1 . 11/11/2007
Hello, Thenaridier. Thank you for the kind reviews, and I am glad to say that I'm back with some new works to post.

I love the statement in this haiku. It captures the pompous missionary "spread-civilization-to-our-savage-brothers" mentality very well. And judging from the choice of words, I think you might have read Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. If you haven't, I strongly recommend it. Not only would it be on a topic of interest, but the overall writing would please you, I think.

Good work!

I sense a pledaing tone in this haiku, especially at the last line. Quite a weird topic for a haiku (imperialism?) but it's actually delightful to read.
