About the Book:
Heart of Darkness was published in 1899. It was written by Joseph Conrad and is about a voyage up the Congo River. The novella contains a story within a story, following a character who recounts his adventure to a group of people. In the story, a voyage takes readers deep into the Congo Free State. Upon the river, we journey into the very heart of Africa. The narrator, Charles Marlow, describes his travels in the African continent to his friends while aboard the boat anchored on the River Thames. Heart of Darkness implicitly comments on imperialism and racism. It acts as a reflection on corruptive European colonialism and is a journey into the nightmare psyche of those who have become corrupt. Heart of Darkness is considered to be one of the most influential works ever written.
