The novel is 'Heart of Darkness' by Joseph Conrad. A review says: "It is on one level about a voyage into the heart of the Belgian Congo, and on another about the journey into the soul of man."


'Heart of Darkness' is a short novel written by Polish author Joseph Conrad published in 1899. It tells the story of Charles Marlow, a British sailor, and his troubles and adventures as an ivory transporter down the Congo River, in Central Africa.

Leopold the Second was the King of Belgium from 1865 to 1909. He was infamous for running the Congo Free State ( later Belgian Congo ) as his personal fief.

Joseph Conrad is the author of a very controversial novella called "Heart of Darkness." He wrote about the Congo and what happened there when it was under the power of the European settlers, who were trying to gain control and civilize the people and take advantage of the natural resources that their land had to offer. Chinua Achebe argues that Joseph Conrad is racist. Achebe takes a closer look at Joseph's novella from different points of view. He wrote an essay in which he depicts the reasons why "Heart of Darkness" is discriminatory and ignorant. I agree with Chinua Achebe. The novella "Heart of Darkness" was written at a time when people had very little knowledge about the African culture, and they often made false assumptions. Conrad's writing failed to treat others without discrimination and did not respect others' dignity and rights. Discrimination is one of the great tragedies of modern life.

The meaning of darkness evolves as the story progresses in Joseph Conrad's novella, Heart of Darkness. At first the audience is led to believe that darkness refers to the absence of what makes Western culture 'civilized'; technology, communication, relationships, etc. In this way, the meaning is a physical reference. As Marlow travels further and further in to the Congo, he gets deeper into the heart of darkness.As Marlow journey continues, he is exposed to the immoral methods of the Company in their quest for power and profit. Thus, another meaning of darkness is revealed. The true nature of humanity is revealed when the constraints of civilization are removed, as allowed in the isolated Congo.
