The classic novel that inspired Apocalypse Now
A European trading concern hires Marlow to pilot a boat up the Congo River in search of Kurtzâ€”a first-class ivory agent and the manager of the companyâ€™s highly profitable Inner Stationâ€”who is believed to be on his deathbed. With a handful of pilgrims as his passengers and a crew of cannibals, Marlow steams his way into the African interior. The terrifying discovery he makes at the end of his journey and the horrors he witnesses along the way have thrilled and disturbed readers for more than a century.
A searing indictment of imperialism and a haunting exposĂ© of mankindâ€™s savage nature, Heart of Darkness is Joseph Conradâ€™s masterpiece.
