Book summary

Joseph Conrads Heart of Darkness was first published in 1899 in serial form in Londons Blackwoods Magazine.

Loosely based on Conrads firsthand experience of 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 Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and readers notes to help the modern reader contend with Conrads complex approach to the human condition. [via]
