Heart of Darkness
Heart of Africa
Charles Marlow narrates his voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State in the Heart of Africa. He tells his story to his friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames. This setting provides the frame for Marlow's story of his obsession with ivory trader Kurtz. Conrad offers parallels between London ("the greatest town on earth") and Africa as places of darkness.
