Joseph Conrad was born in 1857 at Berdyczow in the Ukraine. Orphaned at the age of eleven, he left home at 16 to seek his fortune on the sea. He led an adventurous life, surviving gun-running, shipwreck and a stint as captain of a Congo steamboat. It was this latter venture which opened his eyes to the abuses of colonial power and the darker side of imperialism. These insights and experiences inform the plot and characters of Heart of Darkness, a chilling condemnation of the hypocrisy of imperial rhetoric, where the 'bringing of civilization' to 'benighted natives' hides the true extent of oppression, exploitation and hideous cruelty."

Textul de pe ultima copertă

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.
