Sample text

It had become so pitch dark that we listeners could hardly see one another. ’31 Such interjections reiterate the oral nature of Marlow’s storytelling; he preaches in a darkness that makes seeing, and therefore reading, impossible. Marlow is a voice, his silences are noted and are significant because they belong to the first narrative, the narrative which takes narrating as its story and for which silence is a failure of that story. Identifying the two narrative levels in ‘Youth’ and Heart of Darkness, both linked by the character of Marlow, makes it clear that there can be more than one story in a single text.
