Synopsis

Heart of Darkness by Prof. Harold Bloom

Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness is not simply a critique of colonialism in the Congo, but it is an examination of the human tendency toward self-endangering corruptibility. In this updated collection of critical essays, master literary scholar Harold Bloom suggests that this resonant work has taken on the power of myth. This study guide to Heart of Darkness also features an annotated bibliography and a listing of other works by the author.
