Heart of Darkness is powerful, short enough to be well-taught in a high school classroom, and enigmatic throughout. While reading this prime example of a frame story, students will see how exterior plot events parallel emotional and psychological movements within the main character. As Marlow's boat slowly takes him deep into the heart of darkest Africa, he examines his values and those of his imperialistic society. The end of his journey—his meeting with the mysterious Mr. Kurtz—finds him staring into the horrific face of human savagery.
