About the Author

Joseph Conrad is recognized as one of the 20th century's greatest English language novelists. He was born Jozef Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski on December 3, 1857, in the Polish Ukraine. His father, a writer and translator, was from Polish nobility, but political activity against Russian oppression led show more to his exile. Conrad was orphaned at a young age and subsequently raised by his uncle. At 17 he went to sea, an experience that shaped the bleak view of human nature which he expressed in his fiction. In such works as Lord Jim (1900), Youth (1902), and Nostromo (1904), Conrad depicts individuals thrust by circumstances beyond their control into moral and emotional dilemmas. His novel Heart of Darkness (1902), perhaps his best known and most influential work, narrates a literal journey to the center of the African jungle. This novel inspired the acclaimed motion picture Apocalypse Now. After the publication of his first novel, Almayer's Folly (1895), Conrad gave up the sea. He produced thirteen novels, two volumes of memoirs, and twenty-eight short stories. He died on August 3, 1924, in England. (Bowker Author Biography) show less

Short biography
Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. Though he did not speak English fluently until his twenties, he was a master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. Conrad wrote stories and novels, many with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of what he saw as an impassive, inscrutable universe.

Conrad is considered an early modernist, though his works contain elements of 19th-century realism. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced numerous authors, and many films have been adapted from, or inspired by, his works. Numerous writers and critics have commented that Conrad's fictional works, written largely in the first two decades of the 20th century, seem to have anticipated later world events.

Writing near the peak of the British Empire, Conrad drew, among other things, on his native Poland's national experiences and on his own experiences in the French and British merchant navies, to create short stories and novels that reflect aspects of a European-dominated world—including imperialism and colonialism—and that profoundly explore the human psyche.

They give you Heart of Darkness to read at school, but if you read Lord Jim and this, you know you're reading one of the greatest prose stylists and and thinkers in literature. Guy sets the bar. We are not worthy.

I liked the book. Enjoyable and a relatively quick read if you stay on it. I did get distracted for a week.

That said, I do feel like I was missing something. I don't understand the Kurtz situation. Why does everyone care about him so much. The various side characters could be reacting to his efficiency at ivory collection or previous interactions. But why does Marlow care so much? I could understand an interest this man so highly esteemed. The shown interactions between the two is effectively non-existent. We are told Kurtz is so amazing, but not shown anything.

I'm sitting here wondering if a page didn't print in this cheap copy I have.

Or, maybe, that lack of demonstrating anything of interest from Kurtz IS the point. That his ability to extract wealth from Africa for the company was what made everyone view him as great. However, being effective alone is not enough to get a person recognition.

Ultimately, that massive complaint is tied to the payoff of the journey. The journey itself is still a good story and effective in showing how the company doesn't care about the people of Africa while cruelly exploiting them.

I don't get the point of setting the story so that it is Marlow recounting his experience in Africa to his friends. That extra layer doesn't add anything. At least for me. There's no interactivity between Marlow and the listeners. It also means all the paragraphs (99%) start with quote marks which is kind of annoying. That conceit is superfluous.

There is a quote I really liked from the book. "I don't like work--no man does--but I like what is in the work--the chance to find yourself. Your own reality--for yourself, not for others--what no other man can ever know." I think it does relate to Kurtz. He found himself in his work and he didn't like himself.

A very salty nautical tale of a captain’s, first, arduous command. I doubt a non-sailor would think much of it. I though, am one, so did enjoy that part to some extent. The narrator is an annoying ass and was hard to take, but softened as the tale proceeded.

This book is set during the “Long Blockade” of Toulon, which set the stage for the Battle of Trafalgar. I needed some research on this to make sense of the plot, but the real focus is character study. I was particularly interested in the exploration of the impact of being a “survivor” of the French Revolution: ex-Royalists living next door to ex-Jacobins who wiped out half their extended families, the memories of denunciations and blood running in the streets. The title character is a man of no national or political identity, another compelling theme.… (more)
