CONRAD, J.: Heart of Darkness (Unabridged)

‘…he seemed to stare…with that wide and immense stare embracing, condemning, loathing all the universe. I seemed to hear the whispered cry, “The horror! The horror!”’

On a becalmed yawl in the Thames estuary, Marlow tells a tale of Africa. His job there is to find the enigmatic Kurtz, but his journey farther and farther upriver reveals the brutality of the white Imperialists who run the country.

Established as one of the great English novels, and a story of mythic power, Heart of Darkness is rich in meaning—allusive, enthralling and haunting.

‘And this also,’ said Marlow suddenly, ‘has been one of the dark places of the earth.’
