In Conrad's haunting tale, Marlow, a seaman and wanderer, recounts his physical and psychological journey in search of the enigmatic Kurtz. Travelling to the heart of the African continent, he discovers how Kurtz has gained his position of power and influence over the local people. Marlow's struggle to fathom his experience involves him in a radical questioning of not only his own nature and values but the nature and values of his society.

Book Description U.S.A.: W. W. Norton & Company, 1988. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Brand new soft copy (Norton Critical Edition). I had to read this in college English and it changed the way I looked at how people behaved in a war like Vietnam. While this book is not about Vietnam it is a glimpse into any situation where society no longer is around to monitor and keep some level of sanity. What do humans do when they are out of 'society' and believe that no one will find out what they do. A must read. "C"onrad (PM). Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1481433760828
