Heart of Darkness

by Joseph Conrad

Heart of Darkness though claimed as the racist novel, It is deeply religious one. Conrad is not making a jock by presenting the Light of the Asia: Lord Buddha in three diffient places clearly though Bruce Johnson in his "Heart of Darkness" and the problem of Emptiness" refers the presence of the Buddha in "four crucial occasions" connects the story to the religion clearly. Like Sanjaya in the Mahabharata who tells the War to the blind King Dhritarashtra Marlow supported by the Omniscient and omnipresent narrator delivers the story/experiences/comments to us weaving the every word to the plot of the novel loaded with the philosophical meaning for us. It is a China Box for us to see and ponder how many boxes of meanings are there in a single text. The Epitome of the meaning is the Religion subltly hidden into the passages of the Novel.
