Heart of Darkness

The "pilgrims"

The "pilgrims" have come to Africa to do a kind of work-to trade European goods for profit. Is this a kind of work Marlowe or Conrad admires?

Question 2

Under what circumstances is it a relief to have work to do? When would you rather not have work waiting for you?

Marlow detests the "pilgrims" . He thinks they are mindless pudgy white prospectors out to use the land and its people. As to your second query, work can be a relief if it gives you purpose. It can occupy your day and give meaning to your life. If the work isn't rewarding, one might not want it waiting for them.
