Abstract:

Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness was first published in 1899 in serial form in London's Blackwood's Magazine. Loosely based on Conrad's firsthand experience in rescuing a company agent from a remote station in the heart of the Congo, the novel is considered a literary bridge between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. With its modern literary approach to questions such as the ambiguous nature of good and evil, the novel foreshadows many of the themes and techniques that define modern literature. This edition includes a glossary and notes to help the modern reader contend with Conrad's complex approach to the human condition.
