Heart of Darkness is a novella, written by Joseph Conrad, that is presented in the form of a frame narrative (a story within a story). Conrad retells the story of Marlow's job as an ivory transporter down the Congo River. Through his journey, Marlow develops an intense interest in investigating Kurtz, an ivory-procurement agent. Heart of Darkness explores the darkness potentially inherent in all human hearts, and deals with the themes of colonialism, racism, and savagery versus civilization.

Through the years the story gained in popularity. It has since been published in abundance, in several different forms (collected works, paperbacks, annotated studies, etc.), and has been translated into many different languages. Because Heart of Darkness is such a relatively short novella, it has generated proportionately more discussion - in the manner of interpretations of meaning, analysis, commentary, reviews, essays, and even provisions of historical context - than any other work in English literature. In 1998, Heart of Darkness was ranked #67 on the Modern Library Top 100 English Language Novels of the 20th Century. and part of the Western canon.
