“The mind of man is capable of anything.”Charles Marlow, an English seaman, narrates his journey up the River Congo in search of an ivory trader named Mr. Kurtz. As he sails into the heart of Africa, from the company’s outer station to the central and inner stations, he comes across scenes of brutality, torture, slavery and horror. What happens when Marlow finally meets Kurtz?A journey not only into the depths of the African jungles but also into the dark recesses of the human soul, Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness is a critical exploration of the spine-chilling truths and hypocrisy of the European colonialism. The novella has undergone several adaptations across radio, theatre, television and motion pictures. It continues to remain one of Conrad’s outstanding works.
