Heart of Darkness (1899) is a short novel by Polish novelist Joseph Conrad, written as a frame narrative, about Charles Marlow's life as an ivory transporter down the Congo River in Central Africa. The river is "a mighty big river, that you could see on the map, resembling an immense snake uncoiled, with its head in the sea, its body at rest curving afar over a vast country, and its tail lost in the depths of the land". In the course of his travel in central Africa, Marlow becomes obsessed with Mr.  Kurtz.

Heart of Darkness

Hard going...I know it's a classic, but...


This is one of those books the ones that sneak up on you, they're not necassacerily easy (or much fun) to read, but years later you find that they've implanted images in you so strongly that they are sometimes hard to tell from real memories. They aren't always pleasant, but I for one have treasured mine for the thirty odd years that have passed since I first read this work. Such books are called classics and deservedly so; they change those that read them, and by extension, they change society-alex rieneck

Heart of the Apocalypse

I'm sure most people reading this know that Apocalypse Now was based on heart of darkness, but, if you haven't done so before, do yourself a favour and read/reread this then watch/rewatch Apocalypse now. It's worth it. C'mon this is probably the shortest modern classic in existence, after Of Mice and Men.
