Summary
Marlow, the narrator, tells his friends of an experience in the Congo, where he once ran a river steamer. Fascinated by reports about the powerful white trader, Kurtz, Marlow went into the jungle, expecting to find in Kurtz's character a clue to the evil around him. Compelling, vivid, exotic and suspenseful, this is among the half-dozen greatest short novels in the English language
