This hugely symbolic tale is basically a narrative inside of a narrative, or body narrative. It follows Marlow as he recounts, from nightfall via to overdue evening, his event into the Congo to a gaggle of guys aboard a boat anchored within the Thames Estuary.
The tale information an incident while Marlow, an Englishman, took a international task as a ferry-boat captain, hired through a Belgian buying and selling corporation. even though the river isn't particularly named, readers may perhaps imagine it's the Congo River, within the Congo unfastened kingdom, a personal colony of King Leopold II. Marlow is hired to move ivory downriver; although, his extra urgent task is to come back Kurtz, one other ivory dealer, to civilization in a canopy up. Kurtz has a name through the region.
