Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

In Heart Of Darkness, English seaman Marlow tells the story of his time as a riverboat captain for a trading company on the Congo, specifically his intense interest in investigating the mysterious Kurtz, an ivory-pro­curement agent with almost godlike status. On his journey, Marlow dis­covers not only the barbaric treatment of the natives at the hands of the Europeans, but also the unfathomable darkness in every human soul. The novel is a fascinating exploration of imperialism and human nature.
