In a novella which remains highly controversial to this day, Conrad explores the relations between Africa and Europe.

On the surface, this is a horrifying tale of colonial exploitation.

The narrator, Marlowe journeys on business deep into the heart of Africa.

But there he encounters Kurtz, an idealist apparently crazed and depraved by his power over the natives, and the meeting prompts Marlowe to reflect on the darkness at the heart of all men.

This short but complex and often ambiguous story, which has been the basis of several films and plays, continues to provoke interpretation and discussion.
