Book Description

Sept. 1 2011 Collector's Library
Heart of Darkness is a short and vividly brutal account of colonial enterprise that has as much in common with the jaded Evelyn Waugh of Black Mischief as it does with any of Conrad's direct contemporaries in the late nineteenth century. It is accompanied in this volume by the tales with which it has been published since 1902, the autobiographical short story "Youth," and the less personal but more substantial tale of an old man's fall from fortune, "The End of the Tether." Though these stories differ considerably in style and content from his later novels, much of his reputation rests upon the words contained in this volume.

Product Description

Review

As powerful a condemnation of imperialism as has ever been written Observer Once experienced, it is hard to let Heart of Darkness go. A masterpiece of surprise, of expression and psychological nuance, of fury at colonial expansion and of how men make the least of life ... endlessly readable and worthy of rereading Telegraph --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Hesperus Press, as suggested by their Latin motto, Et remotissima prope, is dedicated to bringing near what is far—far both in space and time. Works by illustrious authors, often unjustly neglected or simply little known in the English–speaking world, are made accessible through a completely fresh editorial approach or new translations. Through these short classic works, which feature forewords by leading contemporary authors, the modern reader will be introduced to the greatest writers of Europe and America. An elegantly designed series of exceptional books. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart of Darkness Jan. 11 2013
Format:Hardcover
One of the most beautifully written pieces of literature I have ever encountered. Every word is poetic and perfectly linked together by the exact amount of detail and emotion. This book would be on my top 5 list.
Thanks Mr. Conrad. You are sooo rad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overrated. Jan. 3 2014

Start a new paragraph every now and then Conrad. The paragraphs often go on for pages for some reason. There were a few paragraph that were about 3 pages long each.
3.0 out of 5 stars Bought For Granddaughter March 25 2013
By James Montgomery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this because my granddaughter needed it for her high school class. I read it before I gave it to her and found it slightly hard to read. A lot of books or story in the era this was written are in the 1st person narrative which is not the norm today. There was one story in the book that I would have rated higher but the others bring it down.
