Heart of Darkness

Heart of Darkness

Author: Joseph Conrad Narrator: Roger Storm Release Date: 01/10/2017

Heart of Darkness has been considered for most of this century as a literary classic, and also as a powerful indictment of the evils of imperialism.Originally published in 1902, Heart of Darkness remains one of this century's most enduring works of fiction.Written several years after Joseph Conrad's grueling sojourn in the Belgian Congo, the novel is a complex meditation on colonialism, evil, and the thin line between civilization and barbarity.  Heart of Darkness Audio book centers around Marlowe, an introspective sailor, and his journey up the Congo River to meet Kurtz, reputed to be an idealistic man of great abilities. Marlowe takes a job as a riverboat captain with the Company, a Belgian concern organized to trade in the Congo. As he travels to Africa and then up the Congo, Marlowe encounters widespread inefficiency and brutality in the Company's stations. The native inhabitants of the region have been forced into the Company's service, and they suffer terribly from overwork and ill treatment at the hands of the Company's agents. The cruelty and squalor of imperial enterprise contrasts sharply with the impassive and majestic jungle that surrounds the white man's settlements, making them appear to be tiny islands amidst a vast darkness.
