'Heart of Darkness' is the finest of all Conrad's stories, showing him at the height of his powers as a writer of great vividness, intensity, and sophistication. Set in an atmosphere of mystery and menace, it tells of Marlow's journey up the Congo River to meet the remarkable Mr Kurtz. 'An Outpost of Progress', 'Karain', and 'Youth', unavailable in any other edition, echo the theme of the folly of imperial adventure and display Conrad's audaciously brilliant insights into human nature and the bases of civilization.
