Heart of Darkness & Other Tales
Joseph Conrad (au); Cedric Watts (ed). Set in an atmosphere of mystery & menace, Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’ tells the story of Marlow’s journey up the Congo River to meet the remarkable Mr. Kurtz. It reveals Conrad at the height of his powers as a writer of great vividness, intensity, & sophistication. ‘An Outpost of Progress’ is also set in central Africa & offers a fiercely sardonic view of European imperialism. ‘Karain’, with its Malaysian setting, questions conventional ideas of the contrasts between races. ‘Youth’ is a largely autobiographical account of an ill-fated voyage in which Marlow makes his first appearance. The four tales variously appraise the glamour, folly & rapacity of imperial adventure. Intro. & Notes by Cedric Watts. Biblio. Chronology. Glossary.
