Marlow, the narrator of this story, travels up the Congo River to rescue Mr. Kurtz, a representative of a trading company. Kurtz is trapped in this desolate territory along with its uncontrollable occupants and brooding atmosphere. Kurtz's search for truth slowly and surely transforms him into an impenetrable dignitary. The trip is ominous with unpredictable dangers until finally Marlow comes face to face with Kurtz. Marlow tries to interpret the symbols Kurtz gives him as the translation of his journey. For Kurtz and, ultimately, Marlow this pilgrimage is full of destruction and intrigue.
