This paper examines the main character in Joseph Conrad?s "Heart of Darkness". The author describes the character's mental destruction by examining the writer's use of different forms of writing as well as the use of certain styles, imagery, tones and symbols.

From the Paper:

"For every man or woman, there is only so much that individual can handle before they are changed for life. Not a good change mind you, but an experience that one goes through which can totally revolutionize the way you think, the way you see, and the way you are. This difference can make you a different person on the level of night and day. In Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, Marlow just so happens to go through one of these experiences, bringing a torrential downfall to his humanity and mentality."
