The Heart of Darkness

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Africa; Modern State.

In this succinct and effective article, the author is accompanied by Marlow, the main narrator of Joseph Conrad's masterpiece. The two sides of globalism are represented by the young «harlequin» dressed in patches and met by the narrator, and by Kurtz, whom the narrator wishes to meet. The "harlequin" represents local logic, while Kurtz represents spatial logic, the same logic according to which the modern State was built. But in Africa the modern State has never developed and those that have developed are a mix of places in constant conflict with each other.
