Man describes jungle and its peoples in pretty negative terms. Man hears stories about Kurtz who runs the station furthest away. Man pilots boat up the Congo and describes strange and foreign land; even gets to shoot assorted natives. Man meets Kurtz and Kurtz promptly dies. Author invents snappy and profound last words which will ensure the damn thing is read forever. There is some descriptive prose.
There you have it; a parable of Imperialism and men. The Chapman lighthouse, a three-legged thing erect on a mud-flat, shone strongly. Lights of ships moved in the fairway—a great stir of lights going up and going down.
And farther west on the upper reaches the place of the monstrous town was still marked ominously on the sky, a brooding gloom in sunshine, a lurid glare under the stars. There is a strong sense throughout that the Europeans are civilised by dint of time and progression and Africa is not for the same reasons. It is also argued that Conrad is criticising imperialism.
If only it were so. He was aware of the awful conditions in the Congo as a result of the area being run as a personal fiefdom by the Belgian King. Conrad was a firm supporter of all things British and reading around HoD it is clear that Conrad felt Imperialism was ok as long as it was British because the British were humane exploiters! Then there is the question of racism. It is not just or even primarily the language.
The descriptions of the man who has learnt how to do a particular task on the steamer; the helmsman: If you treat other human beings as less or inferior, then what happens to them, their fate, becomes equally insignificant.
The backdrop is the scramble for territory and resources in Africa. The residents of Africa are secondary to this process and it did not occur that the lands and resources might be theirs and not to be plundered to fuel western capitalism.
I'm sure there are many redeeming qualities and philosophies to be absorbed from this book. However, it really is the absolutely most boring read I have ever attempted to undertake. I should probably give it another chance before condemning it to 2 stars I would almost rather read Shakespeare backwards on a rollercoaster than pick this one up again. My god this book is a struggle - possibly harder to get through than the Congolese jungle itself.
I know it's regarded as a "must read" classic but it should come with a free set of match sticks for propping your eyes open with.
I read this while I was working on the Wyre Estuary pipe line and found it to be an amazing aid to midday snoozing. I'm interested in all things African, especially the colonial period but even this pushed my book endurance to its absolute limit. I handed this book on to My god this book is a struggle - possibly harder to get through than the Congolese jungle itself.
I handed this book on to Malc the digger driver so hopefully he doesn't fall asleep at the wheel after reading this one as he's in the 30 tonner now! View all 6 comments.
Cuore di tenebra
Required reading for English class I found this book really hard to get into. Conrad's writing is very concise and I never really felt like I was given time to get into it because the novel was so short.
I liked how it was all a spoken story with interjections from the audience popping up at random times, but I didn't find the story very engaging. It's rare for required reading to catch my attention and stay with me and this was one of those books that just fell flat.
Also, after reading this f Required reading for English class I found this book really hard to get into. Also, after reading this for English class after Beloved, one of my favorite works that we read this year, almost anything would have done so. We are accustomed to look upon the shackled form of a conquered monster, but there — there you could look at a thing monstrous and free. It was unearthly, and the men were — No, they were not inhuman. Well, you know, that was the worst of it — this suspicion of their not being inhuman.
It would come slowly to one. They howled, and leaped, and spun, and made horrid faces; but what thrilled you was just the thought of their humanity — like yours — the thought of your remote kinship with this wild and passionate uproar. Albatross in the offing.
Cuore di tenebra by Joseph Conrad (2 star ratings)
Not one of the best "classics" I have ever read. I thought the narrartive was disjointed, the progression of the main character's "journey through darkness" was not adequately explained and the story itself was a bit boring. That said, the parts of the book with Kurtz were pretty good and the shortness of the novel actually a novella kept me from truly disliking it. Thus, I put it somewhere between "didn't like it" and "it was okay.
The amount of time it took me to get through this book is ridiculous. Especially considering the book is just over pages. And yet, it took me nearly a month and half to finish it. That's saying something. This was a required reading for university and, whilst I understand why it is considered a classic and why some people worship it, I personally, did not enjoy it.
The story wasn't gripping enough, I didn't care for the characters, I didn't find it brilliant- just over-hyped. It really wasn't The amount of time it took me to get through this book is ridiculous.
It really wasn't my cup of tea. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad is one complicated book, considering it only has pages. I didn't love the book nor did I hate it; I just felt very tired after reading it. I found this very unpleasant to read even though it was very interesting. Our tutor at university said that we have to sip it a few pages at a time like good old whiskey. She is definitely right, because, in my opinion, in the end the result is the same. Heart of Darkness: Not to mention having way too much film for Coppola to cut down to a manageable length.
So I knew that someday I would eventually get around to reading the book itself.
Generally I only read SF, not because I dislike other genres, but because there are already too many SF books I need to read before I die and not enough time. Those are the major books I either read in high school or somehow missed all these years and feel like revisiting. The audiobook clocks in at under 4 hours, so I thought it might be abridged, but apparently it really is that short.
The initial chapter was interesting and the language is very lush and descriptive. This is the type of writing you expect from a great work of literature. But as the narrator travels further up the river, deeper into the dark heart of the jungle and the world of the savage, I found it harder and harder to concentrate amid the complete lack of events.
The narrator Marlow seems to be having an extended conversation with himself, complaining of this and that difficulty. He observes the various cruelties and horrid conditions that the white European men have subjected the savage black native peoples, and is clearly disapproving. But it is extremely hard to care due to the vast distance between the narrator and the natives.
As the story progresses, we get only third-hand accounts of the enigmatic, powerful Kurtz, who has apparently taken over his outpost and has taught the natives to worship him like a god.
We never get any taste of what this man was like in his own twisted fiefdom, or how he succumbed to madness. Instead, the narrator Marlow continues to describe in an extremely meandering way, chockablock with metaphors, the fall of Kurtz.
I was fighting to keep my attention on the story, but with so few events and so much exposition, it was a losing battle. I found myself descending into madness, my own private heart of darkness.

Resisto sempre. Anche se ora la cancellerei dalla faccia della terra, la recensione X era un'espressione fedelissima di come pensavo allora, di come mi esprimevo. Se non ci fosse, non potrei tracciare la mia evoluzione. Questo preambolo per dire che ho cambiato la valutazione di Cuore di tenebra da 4 a 2 Non sono solita modificare vecchi voti o recensioni. Questo preambolo per dire che ho cambiato la valutazione di Cuore di tenebra da 4 a 2 stelline. Bella domanda.
Non mi piacque nemmeno allora, Cuore di tenebra. Dalla lettura ricordo solo noia di fronte ad un viaggio che sembrava non finire mai, un protagonista noioso assai, un personaggio dipinto come un uomo eccezionale che a me non sembrava altro che un negriero. Erano sensazioni che provavo anche allora. Eppure le ho ignorate. Notare che non scrissi alcuna recensione: Non ho mai dimenticato del tutto questa storia. Anzi, ho solo da guadagnarci. Peccato solo che il libro non intendesse parlare di questo.

It wasn't an oustanting piece of writing, but when you make the effort and find a pace it's actually easy to get through this. The writing was beautiful and not hard at all to follow and I can see why it receives such praise. This is one of the books I read in school I didn't really care for.
I am an optimist. I like to read books where the characters go through a traumatic, trying experience and out come of it better. In this book, you hope that Marlow will make it out alright, and that he won't become corrupted by the darkness, but your hope is fruitless. In the end, this book was not my cup of tea.
View all 15 comments. Heart of Darkness is a famous classic that is referenced every time I turn around. And, as such, I supposed I should read it just to get the in-jokes. But I'm not terribly impressed. I'm convinced that Conrad must have been paid by the comma since he puts them in so willy nilly. I'm also surprised at all the mis-used words that sound similar to the correct word that should be used without actually being the correct word for the situation.
But people dare not edit the classics, do they? I guess t Heart of Darkness is a famous classic that is referenced every time I turn around. I guess they're afraid of being haunted by rabid fans. Heck, I'm likely to get hunted by rabid fans just for insinuating that a classic has such flaws God forbid that I not like your favorite book. You'll likely want to put my head on a pike for such a thing, won't you?
But you won't because I've used your little in-joke and that should save me for now. One thing that I find interesting is that the reviews I've seen for this book rarely offer a synopsis of the book.
So I shall offer you a synopsis: A steamboat captain accepts a job to go deep into the heart of darkest Africa and is primed with stories of men going into the wild and never returning.
He also anticipates meeting a charismatic man of great words whom everyone treats as a god even turning into a tranny for him. However, the captain is convinced that he won't be impressed by this local god whose power lies within his guns and placing heads on pikes. Ah crap. I just gave away everything except that the local god dies while saying "the horror!
How nice of him. The All-Knowing Sage Wikipedia says that this book is a "thematic exploration of the savagery-versus-civilization relationship, and of the colonialism and the racism that make imperialism possible.
But, otherwise, I didn't really see that the natives were painted in a light any better than the white man. There didn't seem to be a blatant juxtaposition between the two. I guess that the point is that the book is supposed to expose the white man as being a savage and not just a dandy planting a flag somewhere.
I think, though, that I see this more of a tale of the danger of going ga-ga over charismatic local gods and blindly following them lest you turn yourself into a soulless mime. Anyhow, I was glad this book was short. And I'll get all those heads-on-pike references now Classics Readers; Horror Readers. From Goodreads: Dark allegory describes the narrator's journey up the Congo River and his meeting with, and fascination by, Mr. Kurtz, a mysterious personage who dominates the unruly inhabitants of the region My feelings on Heart of Darkness: The book is suspense filled and very descriptive, almost too much description.
Joseph Conrad really didn't leave anything to the imagination on this dark tale of Europe's Colonialism period. The tale took place in Africa, and I found it to be a good read. I did have some problems reading it. I was constantly "forgetting" what had happened so far. This caused me to lose my train of thought way too much.
Conrad has a way of describing the day, the scenes, the sounds, etc I gave it 2 of 5 because the book was just OK because of these reasons. I just couldn't get into this one at all. In this novel, Conrad shows how European enterprises extracted ivory from Africa at the turn of the century and the colonial attitude towards the Africans whose country they were exploiting.
My expectations were high so I was disappointed that I could not get into this. Conrad uses a first person narrative format by having Charles Marlow In this novel, Conrad shows how European enterprises extracted ivory from Africa at the turn of the century and the colonial attitude towards the Africans whose country they were exploiting.
Conrad uses a first person narrative format by having Charles Marlow recount his experiences to fellow sailors one who presumably writes the book. I thought this was an unnecessary and misleading device since the companions rarely speak. None of this happens; Why are they there at all?
While some reviewers cite the brilliant prose, I found it stilted. While every page has examples here are two: The glorification of Mr. Kurtz is overdone. The actual encounter is a letdown.
The aftermath, distributing the papers, meeting the widow, etc. Educators should re-think having this book on high school and college reading lists. As a mature reader, I had trouble with its meaning at the page level.

The institutional racism is presented with offensive detachment. For young people, I think this book would be just another turn off about classics and reading in general.
