'I asked myself what I was doing there, with a sensation of panic in my heart as though I had blundered into a place of cruel and absurd mysteries not fit for a human being to behold'. Charles Marlow's dark intuition here arrives at the culmination of his physical and psychological quest in search of the infamous ivory-trader Kurtz in Joseph Conrad's most famous short story, Heart of Darkness. Ambiguously drawn to the powerful 'voice' of this autocratic European who has become a self-proclaimed ruler in an African colony, Marlow is increasingly embroiled in Kurtz's life and death: he is finally forced into a radical questioning, not only of his own assumptions, but also of the civilized and imperial pretensions of Western Europe. Offering a freshly-researched text based on the writer's original documents, this edition presents a classic of early modernist fiction in a version that, for the first time, recovers Conrad's preferred wordings, punctuation and narrative structure.

“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
