What is the meaning of "Whited Sepulchre" in Heart of Darkness?
Let's start with what a whited sepulchre is! A sepulchre is just another word for tomb, and whited, in this case, refers to the beautiful outward appearance. It's ironic that something so beautiful outside would hold bones/dead bodies. In Heart of Darkness, the author is pointing out that while The Company and Brussels may seem outwardly good and justified, their cruel treatment of Africans in pursuit of profit makes them evil or corrupt.
