This paper analyzes specific sections of Joseph Conrad's novel, "Nostromo", focusing on the characters of Nostromo, Decoud, Sotillo and Charles Gould. The paper analyzes these characters and looks at how Conrad depicts their greed and negative inner qualities.

From the Paper:

"Chapter Eight is a suspenseful chapter and very significant in that it provides us with more insight into the character of Nostromo and Decoud. Conrad uses the events in this chapter to shine a light on the inner man. Each man is impacted by being alone in very different ways. Decoud's thoughts lead him to self-loathing while Nostromo thoughts go in another direction."
