Join bibliophile, Kate Howe, as our Literary Parlor discusses Joseph Conrad’s 1899 book, The Heart of Darkness. The narrator, Charles Marlow, tells the story of a voyage up the Congo River into the “heart of Africa.” The novella is based on Conrad’s own experience in 1890 as he became the Captain of a steamer traveling to various stops along the Congo River. Marlow tells his story while aboard a boat anchored on the Thames River in England. Conrad compares London with Africa illustrating that there is little difference between so-called civilized people and those described as savages.
