In Heart of Darkness, Charles Marlow, a manager of a Belgian ivory company, narrates his voyage aboard the steamboat Nellie to the Congo Free State in the heart of Africa to meet the ivory trader, Mr. Kurtz. As he journeys deep into the African subcontinent, he comes across the cannibalistic existence of the natives and the brutality faced by them.
Heart of Darkness is a haunting tale of adventure that explores the ugly truths of imperialism as it depicts a psychological drama that reveals that the savage nature of mankind still lies behind the veil of the so-called civilization.
