Heart of Darkness is a novella written by Polish novelist Joseph Conrad. The book is about the life of Charles Marlow who works as an ivory transporter on the Congo river in Central Africa. The book talks about Marlow's experience on his perilous journey on the Congo river in order to rescue his employer's agent, a fabled and terrifying Mr. Klutz. The story is a complex elaboration on the modern world's attitude and conscience and explores the differences in the constitution of a barbarian society and a civilized society.

As Marlow journeys through Central Africa, he is horrified and perplexed with what he encounters along his way and is distraught by the weight that weighs on his consciousness as he moves forward against all odds to save one man with the death of many he witnesses as he does so. On finally finding Mr. Klutz, Marlow finds himself calling into question all of his assumptions and beliefs about civilization and human nature.

Heart of Darkness is a three part serial story that is read in numerous schools by students and is interpreted many a number of times by various critics. It shows Conrad's finest, most intense and most sophisticated way of writing.
