On a boat near the estuary of the Thames, Marlow tells his traveling companions of his reconnaissance expedition for a Belgian trading company to its most remote outpost in central Africa. He had been sent to find the elusive Kurtz, a brilliant idealist gone rogue. Marlow’s account relates not only the perils he encounters on his quest, but also the deterioration of his state of mind as he is confronted with a world that is hostile and alien. Renowned for its stylistic boldness and dramatic descriptions, this is a stark yet subtle examination of the powers of the subconscious and the workings of Western imperialism. This volume also contains Conrad’s Congo Diary and Up-River Book, the journal he kept and notes he took while traveling in Africa.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

From the Author:

For generations an exclusively white community of literary critics treated a variety of thematic and stylistic issues (often with great subtlety and insight) while ignoring "Heart of Darkness" as a commentary on imperialism and racism. My edition does both.
