The novel is written so that it will be perceived as self-perceived. Charlie Marlow tells about his trip in Congo. He becomes the captain of a steamer stationed in Congo and will see how bad the native population is treated. On the trading station he hear more about ivory agent Kurtz that he'll get when he is very ill. Kurtz almost worshiped by many but not by all. But there will be many problems to be solved including the increasingly hungry cannibals of the crew and an assault which is being staged. The book offers some insights into the Congo's history and how miserable Congolese were treated when other nations took land I think that the book is important because it takes up a part of history that people should be ashamed to.
