Über das eBook

"The sea-reach of the Thames stretched before us like the beginning of an interminable waterway. In the offing the sea and the sky were welded together without a joint, and in the luminous space the tanned sails of the barges drifting up with the tide seemed to stand still in red clusters of canvas sharply peaked, with gleams of varnished sprits. A haze rested on the low shores that ran out to sea in vanishing flatness. The air was dark above Gravesend, and farther back still seemed condensed into a mournful gloom, brooding motionless over the biggest, and the greatest, town on earth."

"Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad was first published in 1899. Charles Marlow, the narrator, tells about his dangerous encounter with ivory trader Kurtz in the Congo. "Heart of Darkness" has been translated into numerous languages.
