I think Marlow is seen as rather like Kurtz in many ways. Marlow would love to turn his back on his own people just as Kurtz has done. The Company, Europeans and imperialism sickens Marlow; Marlow really does not fit in with white imperialist ideology. Marlow is quite taken with Kurtz's reputation.
