HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.

`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.'

When Charles Marlow agrees to captain a steamer up the Congo in search of the elusive ivory trader Mr Kurtz, it becomes a terrifying journey into both the unknown and his own subconscious. As he travels deeper and deeper into the dense jungle, he begins to sense the presence of this extraordinary and terrible man, and to question the horrifying realities of European imperialism and of human nature itself.

Originally published as a three-part story in 1899, Conrad's masterpiece has inspired many further works, including Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, and remains a thought-provoking text to this day.

“Illuminates the dark side of humanity”

Nothing personifies the corrupting influence of power and greed better than Kurtz,
driven to the limits of sanity not by uncivilised Africa, but by his selfish pursuit of wealth and control over the local populace.... More

“Heart of Darkness”

I had to leave this. There was a few ideas that got my back up and the writing was just inaccessible, as in flat, there was no way in, no depth or dimension, they were just words on a page that followed on from... More
