Compelling, vivid, exotic, suspenseful, these are among the greatest short novels in the English language. "To make you hear, to make you feel, above all to make you see"- this was, first and last, the aim of Conrad.

They call them classics for a reason. This is the book that "Apocolypse Now" is based on. From the back of the book "The dark places of the human soul - this is the region that Conrad so brilliantly explores. HoD tells of the European, Kurtz, who reverts to saveagery in an isolated native trading post."
