Heart of Darkness and Selected Short Fiction, by Joseph Conrad, is part of the Barnes & Noble Classics series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes & Noble Classics: * New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars * Biographies of the authors * Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events * Footnotes and endnotes * Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work * Comments by other famous authors * Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations * Bibliographies for further reading * Indices & Glossaries, when appropriate All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. One of the most haunting stories ever written, Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness follows Marlow, a riverboat captain, on a voyage into the African Congo at the height of European colonialism. Astounded by the brutal depravity he witnesses, Marlow becomes obsessed with meeting Kurtz, a famously idealistic and able man stationed farther along the river. What he finally discovers, however, is a horror beyond imagining. Heart of Darkness is widely regarded as a masterpiece for its vivid study of human nature and the greed and ruthlessness of imperialism. This collection also includes three of Conrad's finest short stories: "Youth," the author's largely autobiographical tale of a young man's ill-fated sea voyage, in which Marlow makes his first appearance, "The Secret Sharer," and "Amy Forster."   Features a map of the Congo Free State.   A. Michael Matin is a professor in the English Department of Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina. He has published articles on various twentieth-century British and postcolonial writers.… (lisätietoja)

A novella, rather than a novel. But one of the most devastating looks into the folly of colonialism ever penned. I would say this book was often aped, but never bettered. We embark on a voyage away from the clean seas, into the darkest, and most diseased parts of the continent, and the soul, intent on what happened to a man we once revered, and find out what has become of him, and of ourselves.

I had to read this book for an AP Lit class in high school and really just didn't enjoy it very much. I feel like most of the time was spent on a boat (if I remember correctly) and it was really dark and depressing. I'm not even sure that it's worth a two star review except that I can't really remember much of it at this point in time so I'm giving in the benefit of the doubt. ( )

Not my type of stories at all, depressing and weird. Though the last story "The Secret Sharer" shocked me by how good it was. It was intriguing and fascinating - Love It! ( )

Having read King Leopold's Ghost prior to Heart of Darkness, I appreciated the latter more for its historical than its literary value. It's just mind-staggering to think that Conrad witnessed such a brutal system of colonization in action, and captured his observations in this fictional account of his journey into the Congo's heartland.

I also enjoyed "Youth," included in the same collection. Marlow's narration of Judea, the ship's, exploits, is seamless and makes for quite the page-turner. Conrad was clearly a very experienced sailor, because he describes sea-faring in careful and convincing detail. His characterization of "Youth" throughout the story is also right on the mark. I've never read a more fitting description of it. (And I would know, because I'm 24!)

"Amy Foster" is the sad story of a shipwrecked eastern European who thinks he finds love in a simple country girl, the first person to offer him any kind of compassion since he landed on that strange shore (England). However, she ultimately turns against him, too, because of his foreign tongue and strange ways that come out more when he attempts to connect with their newborn child. It's due to her neglect and abandonment of her husband when he's very sick that he dies one cold winter afternoon. Very sad.

"The Secret-sharer" is also set on a ship like many of his stories (at least partially) are. Full of suspense, it kept me reading from beginning to end in one sitting. The more stories of Conrad's I read, the more his fan I become. He is a fantastic writer, and I can't wait to get my hands on more of his work. ( )

This could have occurred nowhere but in England, where men and sea interpenetrate, so to speak - the sea entering into the life of most men, and the men knowing something or everything about the sea, in the way of amusement, of travel, or of bread-winning.
