I never before made the connection between London and where ever it is that Kurtz was. London was once a dark place, too and the men who settled it were brutes intent of ripping all the treasure right out of the ground. In this way all men are connected and for as easy it is to claim this novel is racist, it makes the case for the settlers to be far more savage and insane than the unknown “natives”.
