Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

A profoundly influential novel of the colonial time period.
