Description

‘The reaches opened before us and closed behind, as if the forest had stepped leisurely across the water to bar the way for our return. We penetrated deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness.’

At the peak of European Imperialism, steamboat captain Charles Marlow travels deep into the African Congo on his way to relieve the elusive Mr Kurtz, an ivory trader renowned for his fearsome reputation. On his journey into the unknown Marlow takes a terrifying trip into his own subconscious, overwhelmed by his menacing, perilous and horrifying surroundings.

Author Biography

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) was born to Polish parents in Berdychiv (now Ukraine). His early readings in marine literature inspired him to be a sailor. Consequently, he joined the British Merchant Navy in his early twenties and then chose to live as a British citizen in England. His literary career started in his late thirties when he published his first novel Almayer’s Folly in 1895. He is viewed as a great prose stylist who combined, when necessary, the elements of his foreignness, his sailing experiences and his humanistic views to create immortal literary masterpieces. Conrad is regarded as one of the finest writers in English language.
