Heart of Darkness is a short novel by Polish novelist Joseph Conrad, written as a frame narrative, about Charles Marlow’s life as an ivory transporter down the Congo River in Central Africa. The river is "a mighty big river, that you could see on the map, resembling an immense snake uncoiled, with its head in the sea, its body at rest curving afar over a vast country, and its tail lost in the depths of the land.” In the course of his travel in central Africa, Marlow becomes obsessed with Mr. Kurtz. The story is a complex exploration of the attitudes people hold on what constitutes a barbarian versus a civilized society and the attitudes on colonialism and racism that were part and parcel of European imperialism. Originally published as a three-part serial story, in Blackwood's Magazine, the novella Heart of Darkness has been variously published and translated into many languages. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Heart of Darkness one of the hundred best novels in English of the twentieth century.

Il negro del Narciso • Tifone • Un colpo di fortuna • Freya delle sette isoleIntroduzione di Bruno TraversettiTraduzione di Nicoletta Rosati Bizzotto e Bruno OdderaEdizioni integraliIl nome di Conrad è indissolubilmente legato al mare. In numerosi romanzi e racconti, infatti, lo scrittore ha trasferito, rievocandole e trasfigurandole col soffio del mito, le sue avventure di vagabondo degli oceani, e in particolare delle rotte orientali. Questo volume riunisce, oltre a Il negro del Narciso (1897) e a Tifone (1903) – tra i più celebri romanzi brevi di Conrad – Un colpo di fortuna e Freya delle Sette Isole, entrambi del 1912, storie di mare nelle quali compaiono due singolari personaggi femminili. In queste pagine il magico mondo del mare è descritto in tutti i suoi aspetti: l’ostilità e la furia degli elementi, l’esistenza dura degli equipaggi, gli uomini e le donne che popolano i porti, le coste, le navi, i sogni e gli incubi dei marinai.«L’uragano, con la sua capacità di fare impazzire i mari, di affondare navi, di sradicare alberi, di abbattere mura robuste e di scaraventare al suolo gli uccelli stessi dell’aria, aveva incontrato sul proprio cammino quest’uomo taciturno e, impegnandosi al massimo, riuscì a strappargli qualche parola.»Joseph Conrad(Józef Konrad Korzeniowsky) nacque nel 1857 a Berdiczew, nella Polonia meridionale. Nel 1874 cominciò a viaggiare per mare. Dieci anni più tardi, ottenuta la cittadinanza inglese, trasformò il suo vero nome in quello con il quale è universalmente conosciuto e si affermò come uno dei più grandi scrittori di lingua inglese, pur essendo il polacco la sua lingua madre. Morì nel 1924. Sue celebri opere sono Cuore di tenebra, Il reietto delle isole (1896), Lord Jim (1900), Nostromo (1904), La linea d’ombra (1917). Di Conrad la Newton Compton ha pubblicato anche Cuore di tenebra e altri racconti d’avventura, Lord Jim, L'agente segreto, Romanzi del mare (Il negro del Narciso, Tifone, Un colpo di fortuna, Freya delle sette isole).

The Shadow-Line is a short novel being written from February to December 1915. The novella is notable for its dual narrative structure. The full, subtitled title of the novel is The Shadow-Line, A Confession, which immediately alerts the reader to the retrospective nature of the novella. The ironic constructions following from the conflict between the 'young' protagonist (who is never named) and the 'old' drive much of the underlying points of the novella, namely the nature of wisdom, experience and maturity. Conrad also extensively uses irony by comparison in the work, with characters such as Captain Giles and the ship's 'factotum' Ransome used to emphasise strengths and weaknesses of the protagonist.
