Publisher's Description

One tranquil evening, while at anchor in England, Charles Marlow recounts the tale of his first voyage as a ship’s captain—a trip into the heart of the Congo to the Company’s Inner Station, managed by Mr. Kurtz, who is feared ill.

Over the course of Marlow’s voyage into the Congo, he comes face to face with the darkest depths of the jungle, and arrives at the Inner Station to discover that the nature of Kurtz’s illness is madness itself.

Author Bio

Polish author Joseph Conrad is considered to be one of the greatest English-language novelists, a remarkable achievement considering English was not his first language. Conrad's literary works often featured a nautical setting, reflecting the influences of his early career in the Merchant Navy, and his depictions of the struggles of the human spirit in a cold, indifferent world are best exemplified in such seminal works as Heart of Darkness, Lord JimM, The Secret Agent, Nostromo, and Typhoon. Regarded as a forerunner of modernist literature, Conrad's writing style and characters have influenced such distinguished writers as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, William S. Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson, and George Orwell, among many others. Many of Conrad's novels have been adapted for film, most notably Heart of Darkness, which served as the inspiration and foundation for Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 film Apocalypse Now.
