Joseph Conrad -Heart of Darkness

I am writing an essay regarding 'language to describe the indescribable' in the heart of darkness and was looking for key points to highlight in the essay.

To what extent is this true in the novel?

You might begin at the end of the novel. Kurtz' last words - "the horror, the horror" - can be construed as an attempt to describe the indescribable.
