Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. The Shadow Line tells a story of a young sea captain's first command which brings with it a succession of crises: sea is becalmed, the crew laid low by fewer, and his deranged first mate is convinced that the ship is haunted by the malignant spirit of a previous captain. The Nature of Crime is Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford's collaborative work, a study of human psychology. The feelings of the protagonist, as life is crumbles around him, are expressed profoundly by the two authors. Heart of Darkness remains an indisputably classic text and arguably Conrad's finest work. Taking place mostly in Africa, it tells the story of Europeans going to the Congo in search of goods to bring back, mostly ivory подробнее

«The Shadow Line — a short novel based at sea — was first published in 1916. It depicts the development of a young man upon taking a captaincy in the Orient, with the shadow line of the title representing the threshold of this development. Conrad also extensively uses irony by comparison in the work, with characters such as Captain Giles and the ship's «factotum» Ransome used to emphasise strengths and weaknesses of the protagonist

Introduction by Caryl Phillips Commentary by H.L. Mencken, E.M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Bertrand Russell, Lionel Trilling, Chinua Achebe, and Philip Gourevitch 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. This edition contains selections from Conrad's Congo Diary of 1890 the first notes, in effect, for the novel, which was composed at the end of that decade. Virginia Woolf wrote of Conrad: His books are full of moments of vision. They light up a whole character in a flash

More than a century after its publication Heart of Darkness remains an indisputably classic text and arguably Conrad's finest work. Taking place mostly in Africa, it tells the story of Europeans going to the Congo in search of goods to bring back, mostly ivory. They do this in the name of "Imperialism", but Conrad makes it very clear from the beginning that there is no civilization creation going on. Through corruption and exploitation of the blacks, the Europeans gain as much ivory as they can. However, it seems there is another process going on. The deep recesses of the jungle do something to a man, change him, and somehow demoralization begins

On a boat in the Thames estuary, Marlow tells his travelling companions of his reconnaissance expedition for a Belgian trading company to its most remote outpost in central Africa, which brought him on the trail of the elusive Kurtz, a brilliant idealist gone rogue. His account relates not only the perils he encounters on his quest, but also the deterioration of his state of mind as he is confronted with a world that is hostile and alien to him • Renowned for its stylistic boldness and dramatic descriptions, Heart of Darkness is a stark yet subtle examination of the powers of the subconscious and the workings of western imperialism
