Idol Kurtz

“I suppose it did not occur to him Mr. Kurtz was no idol of mine” (58).

Marlow here shows that it is possible not to worship Kurtz, which seems impossible to the Russian who absolutely dotes on Kurtz. An idol is a person, object, or image that serves as the center of worship; it also refers more directly to a false god. Idolatry, the practice of worshiping an idol, is a common strand of religion found in Africa.
