In this pair of literary voyages into the inner self, Joseph Conrad has written two of the most chilling, disturbing, and noteworthy pieces of fiction of the twentieth century. Heart of Darkness is a devastating commentary on the corruptibility of humanity. Based on Conrad’s own 1890 trip up the Congo River, the story is told by Marlow, the novelist’s alter ego. It is a journey into darkness and horror—both literally, as the narrator descends into a sinister jungle landscape, and metaphorically, as he encounters the morally depraved Mr. Kurtz. The Secret Sharer is the tale of a young sea captain’s first command as he sails into the Gulf of Siam—and into an encounter with his mysterious “double,” the shadow self of the unconscious mind. Joseph Conrad boldly experimented with the novella and novel forms, filled his writing with the exotic places he himself had traveled, and concerned himself with honor, guilt, moral alienation, and sin. Heart of Darkness and The Secret Sharer encapsulate his literary achievements—and his haunting portrayal of the dark side of man. With an Introduction by Joyce Carol Oates and an Afterword by Vince Passaro From the Paperback edition.

Der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Schwarzen. Die Reise den Fluss entlang entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes unbewusstes Inneres. Marlow trifft auf den berühmt-berüchtigten und angeblich besonders erfolgreichen Elfenbein-Agenten Kurtz. Kurtz hat auf seinem Handelsposten, von der Handelsgesellschaft als „Leuchtfeuer auf der Straße zum Besseren“ beabsichtigt, ein Zentrum des Bösen und eine machtvolle Position etabliert. Vermeintlich unter dem schädlichen Einfluss der Wildnis hat er sich den in ihm selber existierenden Verrohungstendenzen hingegeben und geht darin unter. Marlow verfälscht seine letzten Worte („Das Grauen! Das Grauen!“), um sie Kurtz' Braut als letzten Gruß zu überbringen.

�The Ice is a compilation of more about ice than you knew you wanted to know, yet sheer compelling significance holds attention page by page. . . . Pyne conveys a view of Antarctica that interweaves physical science with humanistic inquiry and perception. His audacity as well as his presentation warrant admiration, for the implications of The Ice are vast.��New York Times Book Review
