A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Youth , Heart of Darkness and The End of the Tether make up Conrad s most celebrated collection of short narratives. Heart of Darkness forms its sombre centrepiece: set in the Congo of the 1890s, this haunting and widely influential Modernist masterpiece explores the limits of human experience as well as the nightmarish realities and consequences of imperialism. The Cambridge edition presents this trio of stories and Conrad s preface to the collection in forms more authoritative than any so far published. The introduction situates the stories in Conrad s publishing career, traces their sources and surveys contemporary reception. The edition includes detailed explanatory and contextual notes, a glossary of nautical terms, maps and illustrations.
