Throughout the Novella Conrad uses dark diction. On page 19, Conrad utilizes the word, “violent” to display the cruelty of imperialism.

Now the forest is empty, life wasted and drained, the hunt game meaningless. Only the day’s joy is real.” (12). Again, Devi’s concernment for the marginalized state of women in…
