How does applying the postcolonial lens to a reading of Conrad's Heart of Darkness alter the theme and message of the text?
With the hindsight provided by the postcolonial lens, Conrad’s Heart of Darkness is a text that seemingly problematizes the imperial nature of European powers. Compared to other texts during that time period, its discussion of colonization was relatively extreme. Conrad makes a point to argue against the darkness in which Europeans are blindly living and attempts to somewhat cast a light on the cruelty of imperialism. However, although Marlow’s moral confusion is meant to scrutinize the ambiguity of imperialism from the white man’s perspective, Marlow’s portrayal of the Congolese as objects existing in the background further perpetuates the inhuman characteristics attributed to the colonized by Europeans.
