Heart of Darkness

Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.


A haunting critique of European colonialism in Africa, Heart of Darkness recounts Charles Marlow’s perilous expedition up the Congo River in search of Mr. Kurtz, the powerful and enigmatic commander of a Belgian ivory trading post. As Marlow draws closer to and finally reaches the target of his obsession, admiration turns to horror at the colonizers’ atrocities laid bare before him. Its famously cryptic narrative structure, richly layered with symbolic undertones, evokes a hazy, menacing atmosphere that has sparked countless reinterpretations and adaptations to this day.
