In Heart of Darkness, English seaman Marlow tells the story of his time as a riverboat captain for a trading company on the Congo, specifically his intense interest in investigating the mysterious Kurtz, an ivory-pro­curement agent with almost godlike status. On his journey, Marlow dis­covers not only the barbaric treatment of the natives at the hands of the Europeans, but also the unfathomable darkness in every human soul. The novel is a fascinating exploration of imperialism and human nature.

About the Cover: A dark and encapsulating specimen of a heart-shaped fly represents the barbaric and desperate nature of imperialism on its journey on a river of discovery and extermination.
