I have to write an essay on a morally ambiguous character in 'Heart of Darkness' by Joseph Conrad. The only character i can think of that fits that is Kurtz, but i can't think of any real specific examples of how he's a morally ambiguous character? If anyone's read the book could you please help me? Thanks!

    Look particularly at the Character analysis sections.

    " morally ambiguous" . Then make a list of his actions during the book, that might be termed that way.
