Overview

“The horror! The horror!”
 
These are the final words spoken by Mr. Kurtz in Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness,” the story of a man who travels into the jungle to seek his fortune and who instead finds an all-consuming moral and spiritual wilderness. Conrad’s tale of the darkness that festers in the heart of the civilized is one of the most enduring works of twentieth-century literature and a touchstone for many later works of fiction inspired by its somber theme. This collection of Conrad’s best fiction includes an additional five tales of the land and sea and the intrepid men who adventure upon them.

About the Author

Best known for his novella Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad (1857–1924) was a Polish–British author. Although not a native English speaker, Conrad came to be regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. He revolutionized the English novel with books such as The Secret Agent, Nostromo, and Typhoon. Before publishing his first novel, Almayer's Folly, in 1895, Joseph Conrad spent almost 20 years working mostly at sea as a merchant sailor.
