Marlow’s Initial Response to Jim

  • Bernard J. Paris


Marlow’s personal relationship with Jim begins when Jim angrily confronts him under the mistaken impression that Marlow has called him a wretched cur. After Marlow points out the yellow dog to which someone else had thus referred, Jim dashes off in embarrassment. Marlow pursues him, invites him to dinner, and hears his account of what happened on the Patna. Before this, however, Marlow has become emotionally involved in Jim’s case, has begun seeking information about it, and has discussed it with Brierly. From the moment of Jim’s arrival in port, Marlow is disturbed by him.
