Storyboard Text

  • The Trip to Kurtz
  • Break for Firewood
  • Back on the River
  • The men begin the journey to Kurtz' camp. We get a description of some of the men & learn the crew are cannibals.  1. Paradox - they rely on the crew yet the crew are dangerous "Cannibals were hired as crew members for the steamer and they were able to control their temper and their desires to feed on the humans"
  • The Native Attack
  • 2. Similie - the way Marlow tears himself from the book. "to leave off reading was like tearing myself away from the shelter of an old and solid friendship."
  • The Helsmen's Death
  • Marlow is weirdly fascinated by his death and must "make an effort to free my  {Marlow's} eyes from his gaze."
  • The crew & Marlow, taking the book with, begin back on the river to the station. 3. Imagery - providing depictions of the surrounding forest and dangerous river "Not the faintest sound of any kind could be heard. You looked on amazed, and began to suspect yourself of being deaf – then the night came suddenly, and struck you blind as well."
  • Meeting the Boy
  • The boat comes to a fork, which Marlow chooses to go West towards the station. The path is very narrow however, and the crew soon comes to a fight with the natives who are hiding in the surrounding forest and gun smoke blocks Marlow's view. 4. Irony - the men with guns are trying to help but are endangering them all.
  • During the native's attack, the Helmsmen is murdered, his blood soaking Marlow's shoes. Instead of a sorrowful response, Marlow seems to be more uncomfortable than anything and though he is sorrowful over his friend, he rushes not to his side but to get a change of shoes after throwing his off. 5.Diction - the man's dead eyes staring up at Marlow.
  • After tossing the helmsman's body overboard, soon the crew comes to an old looking building where a young boy waits out front and tells them Kurtz is here. 6. Thesis - In his novel, Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad utilizes savagery through diction and imagery to convey the darkness of he human soul.
