In Lord Jim, first mate Jim, joins his captain and crew in abandoning the Patna. Later, they are picked up by a British ship. However, the Patna and its passengers are also saved, and the actions of the crew are exposed. Everyone evades the judicial court of inquiry except Jim. The court strips him of his navigation command certificate. Jim is angry with himself. Jim tries to return to the sea but whenever the Patna incident catches up with him, he abandons his place and moves further east. Jim eventually finds a place on a remote inland settlement where his past can remain hidden. While living on the island he acquires the title 'Tuan' ('Lord'). Heart of Darkness tells of Charles Marlow, a river-boat captain in Africa. The story exposes the dark side of European colonization while exploring the darkness of the Congo wilderness, the darkness of the Europeans' cruel treatment of the African natives, and the darkness within human beings for committing heinous acts of evil.
