I need help on writting a paper about the apocalyptic themes in the Heart of Darkness. Could anyone elaborate on this for me?

You start, someone will help.

If you don't know where to start, look up apocalyptic in the dictionary, then read "Heart of Darkness" noting anything apocalyptic.

If you're looking for something to search for, try looking up the word sepulchral or sepulchre. There are a few mentions of this; namely when Marlow is talking about the Company. Not sure if this is what you're looking for exactly, but you could talk about why he refers to Europe as a sepulchral city. Also it might be worthwhile to look closely at when Kurtz dies and what his views are near the end of his life. Hope this helps..
