Heart of Darkness
And Youth (Vintage Voyages)
He cried in a whisper at some image, at some vision – he cried out twice, a cry that was no more than a breath, “The horror! The horror!"' - Heart of Darkness
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY TIM BUTCHER
The silence of the jungle is broken only by the ominous sound of drumming. Life on the river is brutal and unknown threats lurk in the darkness. Marlow’s mission to captain a steamer upriver into the dense interior leads him into conflict with the others who haunt the forest. But his decision to hunt down the mysterious Mr Kurtz, an ivory trader who is the subject of sinister rumours, leads him into more than just physical peril.
