But since the class didn’t discuss at length the section of the book where that word appears, I want to expand upon it here. More specifically, I want to use that section to illustrate some of the ways that Conrad uses language to create tensions at this point in the novel.

This man was left quadriplegic after a diving accident and had been bedridden for almost 30 years. He fought a losing battle with government: he never received permission for euthanasia, and in January 1998, with the help of one of his friends he took poison. Another possible reason for the justifying of euthanasia is the lack of space in hospitals for those who can be cured and saved. It is bitter to own up, but this problem exists in many countries. Those who want to live have no chance to get the proper treatment while those who want to die cannot give their place to them.
