How we cite our quotes: Citations follow this format: (Chapter.Paragraph)
"One evening coming in with a candle I was startled to hear him [Kurtz] say a little tremulously, 'I am lying here in the dark waiting for death.' The light was within a foot of his eyes. I forced myself to murmur, 'Oh, nonsense!' and stood over him as if transfixed." (3.41)
We're pretty sure that this blindness is metaphoric: Kurtz is blinded by the darkness and evil of his soul.
