Heart of Darkness3,78 18 5 Scritto da: Joseph Conrad Letto da: Frederick Davidson
Marlow, the story’s narrator, tells his friends of an experience in the Congo where he once ran a river steamer for a trading company. He tells of the ivory traders’ cruel exploitation of the natives there. Chief among these is a greedy and treacherous European named Kurtz, who has used savagery to obtain semidivine power over the natives. While Marlow tries to get Kurtz back down the river, Kurtz tries to justify his actions, asserting that he has seen into the very heart of things.
