Introducing a fresh, practical approach to Joseph Conrad's enduring classic -- affordably priced, smartly packaged, and editorially ideal for students and general readers.

The finest of all Conrad's tales, 'Heart of Darkness' is set in an atmosphere of mystery and menace, and tells of Marlow's perilous journey up the Congo River to relieve his employer's agent, the renowned and formidable Mr. Kurtz. What he sees on his journey, and his eventual encounter with Kurtz, horrify and perplex him. Ultimately, Conrad calls into question the very bases of civilisation, human nature, and imperialism.

'The Secret Sharer' is the sage of a young, inexperienced skipper forced to decide the fate of a fugitive sailor who killed a man in self-defence. As he faces his first moral test, the skipper discovers a terrifying truth -- and comes face-to-face with the secret itself.

'Heart of Darkness' and 'The Secret Sharer' draw on actual events and people that Conrad met or heard about during his many far-flung travels. In portraying men whose incredible journeys on land and at sea are also symbolic voyages into their own mysterious depths, these two masterful works give credence to Conrad's acclaim as a major psychological writer.
