One of the most haunting stories ever written, Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness follows Marlow, a riverboat captain, on a voyage into the African Congo at the height of European colonialism. Astounded by the brutal depravity he witnesses, Marlow becomes obsessed with meeting Kurtz, a famously idealistic and able man stationed farther along the river. What he finally discovers, however, is a horror beyond imagining. Heart of Darkness is widely regarded as a masterpiece for its vivid study of human nature and the greed and ruthlessness of imperialism.

This collection also includes three of Conrad's finest short stories: "Youth," the author's largely autobiographical tale of a young man's ill-fated sea voyage, in which Marlow makes his first appearance, "The Secret Sharer," and "Amy Forster."

Features a map of the Congo Free State.
