Follow a dark and powerful journey up the Congo River in Conrad's sharp and incisive exploration of the damages of imperialism. Life on the river is brutal, and unknown threats lurk in the darkness; the silence of the jungle is broken only by the ominous sound of drumming. Marlow's mission to captain a steamer upriver into the dense interior leads him into conflict with the others who haunt the forest.
But his decision to hunt down the mysterious Mr Kurtz, an ivory trader who is the subject of sinister rumours, leads him into more than just physical peril. 'Demands to be read. At its core lies the enigmatic, awesome Kurtz, and civilisation itself' GuardianVINTAGE VOYAGES: A world of journeys, from the tallest mountains to the depths of the mind
