    "The yarns of a seamen have a direct simplicity, the meaning of which lies within the shell of a cracked nut. But Marlow was not typical (if his propensity to spin yarns be excepted), and to him the meaning of an episode was not inside like a kernel but outside, enveloping the tale which brought it out only as a glow brings out a haze, in the likeness of one of these misty halos that sometimes are made visible by the special illumination of moonshine." How is Marlow like the other seamen? He tells complicated tales. He tells simple tales. He tells tales. He feels at home in the moonshine. He only tells stories at night. The point of the metaphor of the "cracked nut" is to emphasize: Marlow's intelligence. the indirect quality in seamen's stories. the simplicity of Marlow's stories. the simplicity of the seamen's stories. the sea itself. This passage occurs: at the beginning of the story. at the end of the story. in the middle of the story. right before Marlow describes Africa. right after Marlow describes Kurtz.
