Joseph Conrad - LIFE STORIES
 
 
9/6/1890     Conrad, Marlow, Africa
On this day in 1890, thirty-two year-old Joseph Conrad took command of a small stern-wheeler for the trip down the Congo river from Stanley Falls (now Boyoma Falls) to Leopoldville (now Kinshasa). Though Conrad was not exposed to the full horror that Marlow witnessed and felt beckon, these experiences were the genesis of Heart of Darkness, published twelve years later.

Study Guide to Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness"
Features a useful guide for senior high school or university students. Offers analysis and explanations, study questions and suggested lines of inquiry and examination, reminders, and writing suggestions.

"Throughout the story, you want to keep systematic track of the motifs that show up in the work's title -- of darkness and heart, literally and metaphorically. This means, too, that you'll want to keep track of their various contraries (or supposed contraries) -- of light, and of such different things conventionally distinguishable from the heart as the intellect, will, appetites, soul."
The Joseph Conrad Society (UK)
Home of "The Conradian," a subscription-based scholarly journal, offering essays, reviews, articles, and information about conferences and society activities. The website offers book reviews, and an extensive collection of links to online Conradian resources.
