Finally, the steamboat is ready and Marlow says, "I was then rather excited at the prospect of meeting Kurtz very soon." Why do you suppose he is excited about that?

For Marlowe, Kurt is an enigma..... someone he's heard so much about that he's almost legendary. This prospect is exciting because he'll finally see for himself whether or not the man is the legend..... or if he's simply a man.
