Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad is a terrifying look at the savagery of human nature and a classic novel read in many high school and college English courses. In the novel, a young Englishman, Marlow, goes to Africa to seek his fortune and discovers horror in his journey both into the dark heart of Adrica and the dark center of the human experience., A ferryboat captain in search of a notorious ivory trader ventures into an African jungle, where he discovers a dark side of the human condition. In this burning indictment of colonialism, Joseph Conrad drew upon his own shipboard experiences in the region formerly known as the Belgian Congo. His novella explores the potential for evil that lurks behind the illusion of civilized restraint. No student of modern fiction can afford to neglect Heart of Darkness or to overlook its narrative and symbolic richness, penetrating character studies, and psychological power. A definitive survey, this Dover Thrift Study Edition offers the novel's complete and unabridged text, plus a comprehensive study guide.Created to help readers gain a thorough understanding of the content and context of Heart of Darkness, the guide includes: - Chapter-by-chapter summaries - Explanations and discussions of the plot - Question-and-answer sections - Conrad biography - List of characters and more, A journey up the river in the Belgian Congo is also a journey into the darkest part of a man's soul., A tale of horror, set in the Congo during the period of rapid colonial expansion in the 19th century. The story deals with the highly disturbing effects of economic, social and political exploitation of European and African societies and the cataclysmic behaviour this induced in some individuals., Africa, Although Polish by birth, Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) is regarded as one of the greatest writers in English. The tale concerns the journey of the narrator (Marlow) up the Congo River on behalf of a Belgian trading company. Far upriver, he encounters the mysterious Kurtz, an ivory trader who exercises an almost godlike sway over the inhabitants of the region. Both repelled and fascinated by the man, Marlow is brought face to face with the corruption and despair that Conrad saw at the heart of human existence. In its combination of narrative and symbolic power, masterly character study and acute psychological penetration, Heart of Darkness ranks as a landmark of modern fiction. It is a book no serious student of literature can afford to miss., Audiobooks., Bollinger, Max,1974-, CD FIC CONRAD, Case, David, Charles Marlow is a steamboat captain on the River Thames near Gravesend England. He and his crew work for an ivory trading company. One day he recounts to his fellow crew the story of his life and how he became a captain for the steam boat company. The focus of his story involves the journey Marlow undertook to the outer reaches of the company's operations. Here he tells of his wild encounters with Mr. Kurtz, a man with a great reputation for bringing in the most ivory for the company. Kurtz is widely respected by the natives, yet Marlow has some differing opinions as he struggles to understand Kurtz's way of life, while uncovering secrets about the strange way Kurtz conducts his business., Classics, Classics., Congo River, Conrad, Joseph,1857-1924,author., Conrad, Joseph,1857-1924., Conrad, Joseph,1857-1924.Heart of darkness., Conrad, Joseph., Conrad, Josephauthor, Crossley, Steven,narrator., DLCDLCOCoLCDLCOCoLCDLCTnLvILS, Dark allegory describes the narrator's journey up the Congo River and his meeting with, and fascination by, Mr. Kurtz, a mysterious personage who dominates the unruly inhabitants of the region.

The passage of time and the darkening sky during Marlow's narrative parallels the atmosphere of the events he narrates., Introduction and Notes by Gene M. Moore, Universiteit van Amsterdam. Generally regarded as the pre-eminent work of Conrad's shorter fiction, Heart of Darkness is a chilling tale of horror which, as the author intended, is capable of many interpretations. Set in the Congo during the period of rapid colonial expansion in the 19th century, the story deals with the highly disturbing effects of economic, social and political exploitation of European and African societies and the cataclysmic behaviour this induced in some individuals. The other two stories in this book – Youth and The End of the Tether – concern the sea and those who sail upon it, a genre in which Conrad reigns supreme., Joseph Conrad was an immigrant from Poland who learned English as a boy and spent many years at sea. The quality and telling of his stories is formidable. The atmosphere, the characters, the narrative are all uniformly excellent., Large type books., MWT11388133, MWT11392191, MWT11428304, MWT11463484, MWT11557962, MWT11563684, MWT11602244, MWT11602604, MWT11620962, Made available through hoopla, Marlow relates the complex horror he experiences when he journeys deep into the Belgian Congo to retrieve a cargo boat and an ivory company employee named Mr. Kurtz.
