HEART OF DARKNESS, page 004

Title: But Marlow was not typical (if his propensity to spin yarns be excepted), and to him the meaning of an episode was not inside like a kernel but outside, enveloping the tale which brought it out only as a glow brings out a haze, in the likeness of one of these misty halos that sometimes are made visible by the spectral illumination of moonshine.

  1. Reading this quote gave me chills. One of my favorite lines in the book for sure.

  2. Thank you Ann. As with 'Moby-Dick,' often the most difficult aspect of this illustration project is settling on a single passage or idea from each page. 'Heart of Darkness' is so terrifyingly rich and, yes, dark that there are so many avenues to explore.
