Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

Book Description

In a novella which remains highly controversial to this day, Conrad explores the relations between Africa and Europe. On the surface, this is a horrifying tale of colonial exploitation. The narrator, Marlowe, journeys on business deep into the heart of Africa. But there he encounters Kurtz, an idealist apparently crazed and depraved by his power over the natives, and the meeting prompts Marlowe to reflect on the darkness at the heart of all men. This short but complex and often ambiguous story, which has been the basis of several films and plays, continues to provoke interpretation and discussion.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » This dark novella seems to have come boiling up out of some twisted jungle in Conrad's subconscious. The writing is dense and lush; lovely and terrifying. It is perfectly suited to the physical and moral landscape. The title refers to the centre of Africa where the enigmatic Kurtz has set up a dubious empire, but Conrad's genius is in showing us the dark centre of ourselves. A modern editor would perhaps encourage Conrad to use a stripped-down, leaner, more muscular style but thankfully Heart of Darkness is the vivid classic we've enjoyed for nearly a century. (Kirkus UK)
