Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad

"I saw on that ivory face the expression of sombre pride, of ruthless power, of craven terror--of an intense and hopeless despair. Did he live his life again in every detail of desire, temptation, and surrender during that supreme moment of complete knowledge? He cried in a whisper at some image, at some vision--he cried out twice, a cry that was no more than a breath: The horror! The horror!" Heart of Darkness (1899) by Polish-British writer Joseph Conrad tells a brilliant tale of Charles Marlow's experience in the heart of Africa. Marlow narrates the tale of his voyage up the Congo River and his encounter with Mr.Kurtz, the commander of a trading post of ivory in Africa, to his fellow sailors. An inspiring and stimulating story exposing the hypocrisy of the project of colonization, this book holds a mirror to the darkness inside each one of us.
