From the beginning, Marlow casts doubt over the moral values of the European colonizers. Of the city of London, Marlow casts a dark shadow:
"A haze rested on the low shores that ran out to sea in vanishing flatness. The air was dark above Gravesend, and farther back still seemed condensed into a mournful gloom, brooding motionless over the biggest, and the greatest, town on earth." (Chapter 1)
Here is a quote about the great city of London. Here Marlow casts it as a dark hell full of flames,
"Flames glided in the river, small green flames, red flames, white flames, pursuing, overtaking, joining, crossing each other – then separating slowly or hastily. The traffic of the great city went on in the deepening night upon the sleepless river." (Chapter 1)
