In the beginning, Kurtz was sane
His purpose for coming to the Congo of Africa was to civilize its natives
However, ivory, money and power changed him.
His insatiable hunger for ivory drives him to make alliances and enemies among the native Africans, raiding village after village with the help of his African friends as he searches for ivory.
Kurtz became greedy, selfish brutal and a savage himself
Kurtz sickness became worse the more evil he got. He goes blind, says he can not see the light, and raves a little more.
"I was on the point of crying at her, 'Don't you hear them?' The dusk was repeating them in a persistent whisper all around us, in a whisper that seemed to swell menacingly like the first whisper of a rising wind. 'The horror! The horror!'"
