Heart of Darkness
No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence--that which makes its truth, its meaning--its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream--alone. Regarded as one of greatest English novels of the twentieth century, Heart of Darkness tracks the aftermath of a disturbing voyage up the Congo River. This provocative novel, inspired by Joseph Conrad's own experiences, touches on economic, social and political exploitation. Almost 100 years after publication, this timeless classic provided the inspiration for Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 film Apocalypse Now.
