A novel of hallucinatory violence and strangeness, Heart of Darkness tells the story of the sailor Marlow and his entanglement in the horrors of colonialism in Africa.He travels up the Congo on a steamer in search of the great ivory trader, Kurtz, the 'universal genius' who rules his lands through terror, and has made himself into a god.

Joseph Conrad's masterpiece is a harrowing, gripping portrait of man's potential for evil.

About the Author

Joseph Conrad was born in the Ukraine in 1857 and grew up under Tsarist autocracy. In 1874 he travelled to Marseilles, where he served in French merchant vessels before joining a British ship in 1878 as an apprentice. In 1886 he obtained British nationality, before leaving the sea eight years later to devote himself to writing. He published his first novel, Almayer's Folly, in 1895, and produced within fifteen years such astounding works as Youth, Lord Jim, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, Under Western Eyes and Victory. He continued to write until his death in 1924. Lord Jim, Nostromo and The Secret Agent are also published in the Penguin English Library.
