'Heart of Darkness' forms its sombre centrepiece: set in the Congo of the 1890s, this haunting and widely influential Modernist masterpiece explores the limits of human experience as well as the nightmarish realities and consequences of imperialism." "The 'Introduction' situates the stories within the context of Conrad's relationship with the Blackwood publishing firm, traces their sources, lays out the evolution of the volume and surveys its subsequent reception. The 'Explanatory Notes' elucidate literary, historical and geographical references, and supply other contextual materials, A glossary of nautical terms further enriches the explanatory matter, as do maps and illustrations. 'Ube essay on the texts in combination with the comprehensive apparatus lays out the history of each story's composition, revision and publication, detailing interventions in the text by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors." "Based upon a painstaking comparison of preprint documents, serials and subsequent hook versions printed during Conrad's lifetime, the Cambridge Edition presents this trio of stories and their preface in forms more authoritative than any so far published. Errors introduced by typists and early publishers have been repaired and Conrad's own preferred forms recovered; the texts are freed from successive layers of non-authorial intervention; and the impress of magazine house-styles has been bypassed or significantly ameliorated in order to recover the writer's sparer, more expressive punctuation."
