“We live as we dream - alone. While the dream disappears, the life continues painfully.“

Heart of Darkness tells a story within a story. The novella begins with a group of passengers aboard a boat floating on the River Thames. One of them, Charlie Marlow, relates to his fellow seafarers an experience of his that took place on another river altogether – the Congo River in Africa. Marlow’s story begins in what he calls the “sepulchral city,” somewhere in Europe. There “the Company” – an unnamed organization running a colonial enterprise in the Belgian Congo – appoints him captain of a river steamer. He sets out for Africa optimistic of what he will find. But his expectations are quickly soured: from the moment he arrives, he is exposed to the evil of imperialism, witnessing the violence it inflicts upon the African people it exploits.

Heart of Darkness examines the horrors of Western colonialism, depicting it as a phenomenon that tarnishes not only the lands and peoples it exploits but also those in the West who advance it.

Džozef Konrad
Džozef Konrad (1857 – 1924) rođen je u Poljskoj, iz koje je emigrirao za sedamnaest godina u Englesku, tokom nacionalne pobune protiv tadašnje ruske vlasti. Iako mu engleski jezik nije bio maternji, tokom cele svoje spisateljske karijere pisao je samo na njemu, i u englesku književnost je doneo jedan novi, moderni duh i stil. Pošto je od 21 do 37 godine života bio kapetan prekookeanskog broda britanske mornarice, more i plovidba postali su veliki tematsko-motivski deo njegovog stvaralaštva. Iako u prvo vreme smatran piscem egzotičnih, avanturističkih narativa, Konradovo delo je sa vremenom steklo veliko uvažavanje književne zajednice i tumačeno je sa velikom pažnjom i uvažavanjem. Najpoznatija dela su mu romani "Lord Džim", "Nostromo", "Tajni agent", "Očima Zapada" i naravno "Srce tame".
