Karthik Patange AP English Literature Reading Log: Heart of Darkness Chapter 1 : Quote : “I've seen the devil of violence, and the devil of greed, and the devil of hot desire; but, by all the stars! these were strong, lusty, red-eyed devils, that swayed and drove men -- men, I tell you. But as I stood on this hillside, I foresaw that in the blinding sunshine of that land I would become acquainted with a flabby, pretending, weak-eyed devil of a rapacious and pitiless folly.” (81) Context : After arriving at the Company’s station, which is in a state of despair, Marlow sees decaying machinery and a cliff had been blasted for a reason that he did not know. He sees some black prisoners in chains walk beside him. They were being guided by another black man. Who was wearing a uniform and carrying a rifle. Marlow then remarks that he had already known of the devils of violence, greed, and desire before finding a group of dying native laborers. Commentary
