A Deleuzian Reading Of Conrad’s Heart Of Darkness

This paper explores Conrad’s Heart of Darkness to analyze Kurtz’s ghastly vision of horror (trauma) and how he overcomes this traumatic experience through the metamorphosis of becoming - animal/savage in forming his lines of flight from the oedipalizing/oppressive capitalism and imperialis m. To avoid following a conventional approach to study this novella, I explore Kurtz’s unspeakable horror that underlies a postmodern aesthetics of problematizing repr esentation. To further unveil the strategies for (re)presenting Kurtz’s unspeakable pain and horror, or to be more specific, the mysterious vision that overwhelms him right before he dies, I ap ply the Deleuzian concept ion of the “impossible writing ” — a writ ing strategy that is characteristic of minor literature/writing — to analyze Marlow’s narrativization , for it happens to highlight Marlow’s impasse, just like Kafka’s, that bars him access to writing for Kurtz’s outrag eous experienc e and vision and thus turn s this narration/writing into something impossible.
