Heart of Darkness and Selected Short Fiction
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungOne 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.
