Heart of Darkness (novel)

From Citizendium
Revision as of 01:59, 3 July 2009 by Hayford Peirce (Talk | contribs) (I don't think we should call Marlowe a simple "sailor", since he's clearly a superior person and, in this case, a "steamer captain" - there are other terms, I suppose, but "mariner" is a start)
