The story of Marlow travelling upriver in central Africa to find Kurtz, an ivory agent as consumed by the horror of human life as he is by physical illness, has long been considered a classic, and continues to be widely read and studied.

This edition, edited by one of the leading figures in `the Conrad controversy,' includes an introduction and explanatory notes, as well as a fascinating variety of contemporary documents that help to set this extraordinary work in the context of the period from which it emerged. The introduction and bibliography have been updated, and two new appendices have been added; the second of these is a selection of Alice Harris's extraordinary but little-known photographs documenting the horrors of colonialism in turn-of-the-century Congo.

“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
