We just got into HOD, and it is definetly a tough read, but I do enjoy it (after I read the coles notes and figure out what the hell is going on)

I have to answer the question about the papier mache mephistopheles- Now I understand that papier mache referes to being "hollow" and Mephistopheles- is an evil spirt/ devil. So I just need some help as to why Marlow would think this about the brickmaker. Is he like the whited sepulchre?- but why?

your help would be most appreciated.
