Set in the enigmatic Africa of the nineteenth century Heart of Darkness is the tale of Marlow, a captain of a river steamboat of an ivory trading company. As he travels up the Congo River Marlow hears about a Mr. Kurtz, an ivory trader, who holds godly sway over the locals. Finally, he reaches the Kurtz’s station and finds himself at the heart of corruption at a most unlikely place among a most primitive and innocent people. The most celebrated or Conard’s works Heart of Darkness is an elegy of human existence under Imperialism. Its impact remains the same even after over 100 years of its first publication. It has been translated in nearly all important world languages and has regularly been adapted for radio, television and film.

About the Author

Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski ) was a Polish-born English novelist who today is most famous for Heart of Darkness, his fictionalized account of Colonial Africa.

Conrad left his native Poland in his middle teens to avoid conscription into the Russian Army. He joined the French Merchant Marine and briefly employed himself as a wartime gunrunner. He then began to work aboard British ships, learning English from his shipmates. He was made a Master Mariner, and served more than sixteen years before an event inspired him to try his hand at writing.

He was hired to take a steamship into Africa, and according to Conrad, the experience of seeing firsthand the horrors of colonial rule left him a changed man. His introspective need to come to terms with his experience lead to Heart of Darkness, which was followed by other fictionalized explorations of his life.

He has been lauded as one of the most powerful, insightful, and disturbing novelists in the English canon despite coming to English later in life, which allowed him to combine it with the sensibilities of French, Russian, and Polish literature. > <
