Far from simply telling the reader his critique of colonialism in a straight-forward manner, Conrad leads the reader on a path of discovery so that he can reach similar conclusions on his own. One tool that Conrad uses to accomplish this is the use of various narrative devices. This has long been observed, and it ahs been suggested that the variation of Conrad's narrative technique from straight-forward discourse helps to destabilize the cultural assumptions that supported colonialism.
"Edward Said, and before him Wilson Harris, has observed that Conrad's very style with its first-person narrators, framed narratives, time jumps, fractured sentences, and addiction to adjectives upsets the notion of absolute truths assumed by the 'Civilizing mission'" (Hawkins 370).
In this paper, Conrad's techniques of narration, the rather unusually ordering the text, moving in a linear direction like a mystery, but also withholding or giving important pieces of information out of temporal sequence, and his practice of transforming seemingly simple narration of events experienced by his story-teller Marlow into complex images that strongly suggest the richly symbolic and evocative character of works of visual art, are used to support his critique of colonialism.
The Heart of Darkness is not told by Marlow.
