Summary: Conrad's classic about a cruel, corrupt trader in the Congo raises profound questions about the compromises people sometimes make with evil. In Conrad's haunting tale, Marlow, a seaman and wanderer, recounts his physical and psychological journey in search of the enigmatic Kurtz. Travelling to the heart of the African continent, he discovers how Kurtz has gained his position of power and influence over the local people. Marlow's struggle to fathom his experien
ce involves him in a radical questioning of not only his own nature and values but the nature and values of his society. In these literary triumphs, renowned author Joseph Conrad has written two of the most chilling, disturbing, and noteworthy novels of the 20th century. While "Heart of Darkness" makes a devastating comment on humankind's corruptibility and moral depravity, "The Secret Sharer" boldly explores the dark shadows of the unconscious mind. These are stories that encapsulate Conrad's literary achievements, as well as hauntingly portray the dark side of man. Introduction of Joyce Carol Oates.
