Heart of darkness
Joseph Conrad
Adult Fiction CONRAD

Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

Hesperus's centenary edition of the Conrad classic also includes The Congo Diary and Up-River Book, which essentially are notes from his six-month stay in the Congo in 1890. His travels there and sojourn on the river apparently served as the inspiration for the novel. The book also features introductions for Heart and The Congo Diary as well as textual notes for all sections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
