In Heart of Darkness, is Marlow a good narrator?
Marlow narrates the main story inside the narration of an unnamed narrator, who offers few opinions and serves to represent the reader. Marlow's narration is often obscure, full of philosophical digressions and his opinions of the people and places he encounters in the jungle. While he cannot be said, in any sense, to be an objective narrator, he is capable of very memorable imagery and insight.
