"he was useful because he had been instructed; and what he knew was this- that should the water in that transparent thing disappear, the evil spirit inside the boiler would get angry through the greatness of his thirst, and take a terrible vengeance."
Heart of Darkness illustration two!
More metaphors. Angry spirit = white man/imperialism as a whole, etc.
Slightly concerned the heart of gold sends the wrong message- was rather hoping it would signify greed, but not sure it reads that way. The shadow behind is meant to infer a darkness. And a few more fun metaphors. Yay.
Let me know what you think or if you can tell what I was going for? Thanks <3 font="">3>
