Sample text

How does this emotion tie in with Heyst's father's philosophy? 9. Some critics refer to Heyst as a "hollow'' man. What do they mean? 10. Ricardo thinks that Schomberg is a "tame" man. Is Heyst a "tame" man too? 11. Why does Heyst choose the name Lena for the girl he rescues? Which of her two names fits the girl best? 12. How does Conrad show that Schomberg knows what he is doing when he sends the villains to Samburan and feels guilty about his action? 13. How does the reader know that Lena deeply feels the desolation and loneliness of Samburan?

Since Conrad allows the reader access to Heyst's mind in the later part of the book, his private thoughts furnish the clearest revelation of his character. He thinks of Morrison with playful and half-annoyed scorn. " Davidson he regards with indifferent approval. Schomberg's vicious gossip enrages him because it probes his guilt complex. Yet even his rage is shortlived and futile. He regards the three villains as a deadly menace, yet every idea he advances for dealing with them is childish and impotent, nullified by his own emotional inertia.

The catlike "secretary" is now more interested in the girl than in any treasure of gold. While he babbles on in an ecstacy of rapture, she concentrates on how to get that knife. " Anything has to be which will bring that knife within her grasp. Ricardo tells her he will do for both the "gentleman" before midnight. Lena advises him to go slow with Heyst, hinting that she needs to find out more about the treasure, but Ricardo rejects her idea. In a burst of jealousy he declares that Heyst shall never go into her bedroom again.
