Publisher Comments:

Did he live his life through in every detail of desire, temptation and surrender during that supreme moment of complete knowledge? He cried whisperingly at some image at some vision,–he cried twice, with a cry that was no more than a breath–

"The horror! The Horror!"

Charles Marlow's journey into the heart of Africa is odyssey into corruption, absurdity the Africans and conspiring against each other; he voyages upstream on a paddle–steamer that comes under lethal attack; and he encounters the great idealist, Mr Kurtz,the genius who seemed to represent the best Europe. But Mr Kurtz has 'taken a high seat among the devils of the land', and Marlow returns to Europe bearing the burden of appalling knowledge, forced to make his 'choice of nightmares'.

Conrad's seminal tale of self–insprired the far–reaching film Apocalypse Now as well as generations of critical discussion.

A comprehensive paperback edition, with introduction notes, selected criticism, text summery and chronology of Conrad's life and times

Synopsis:

A profoundly influential novel of the colonial time period.

Synopsis:

This is Conrad's most subtle, compressed and proleptic work. Acclaimed as a supreme literary achievement, it has also come under literary, historical, and political attack. The profoundly influential novel journeys toward the settlement of the demonic Mr. Kurtz, the genius who would represent the best of Europe-but who, turned by the colonial experience to abuses both psychological and social, horrifies his investigator Marlow and commits him to witness the repulsive profundity of his own soul and times.
