HEART OF DARKNESS
by Conrad, Joseph
One of 150 numbered copies. Joseph conrad's masterpiece, Heart of Darkness, continues to ignite the interest of readers and literary scholars alike. The simple story of a sea-captain hired by Belgian colonial ivory merchants to search the Congo River for a disaffected company employee turned pathological demigod becomes as deeply a symboloic and frightening descent into the maelstrom of moral consequence as Dante's expedition through Hell. If there is a moral compass to be discovered within its pages it is to be found spinning between the cardinal points of avarice, genocide, values and cconscience as Marlow, streams deeper into the darkness of the jungle and the core of the human psyche in his search for the enigmatic Kurtz.
Published with 36 original drawings by renowned maritime artist Marc Castelli, this limited edition of Heart of Darkness summons us to listen to Marlow's story which echoes even today.
