'Youth', Heart of Darkness and 'The End of the Tether' make up Conrad's most celebrated collection of short narratives. Heart of Darkness forms its sombre centrepiece: set in the Congo of the 1890s, this haunting and widely influential Modernist masterpiece explores the limits of human experience as well as the nightmarish realities and consequences of imperialism. The Cambridge edition presents this trio of stories and Conrad's preface to the collection in forms more authoritative than any so far published. The introduction situates the stories in Conrad's publishing career, traces their sources and surveys contemporary reception. The edition includes detailed explanatory and contextual notes, a glossary of nautical terms, maps and illustrations. A textual essay and comprehensive apparatus reveal the history of each story's composition, revision and publication. This volume will allow scholars to see these familiar stories in a fresh light, by returning to Conrad's original texts.… (mehr)

Il titolo è ingannevole. Il mare è uno dei.protagonisti indiscussi, ma ancor di più lo sono i personaggi e la maestria che Conrad mostra non solo nell'analizzare le profonde oscurità della loro anima tormentata, ma anche il senso d'esclusione che molti di loro avvertono e che, forse, riflette i sentimenti del Konrad polacco naturalizzato inglese. Una piacevolissima scoperta. Consiglio la lettura. Domani, Il ritorno e Amy Forster sono i racconti che ho amato di più. ( )

This was a nice combination of stories. ( )

This is a collection of three novels written by Joseph Conrad. I enjoyed the third story the most. The End of the Tether has an interesting twist at the end of the story. The Heart of Darkness is interesting but I found it less meaningful. Youth was rather mediocre. ( )

I bought this book for Heart of Darkness, and as this famous piece is so short (less than 70 pages), the publishers pads it with two other short stories - Youth, and The End of the Tether. Heart of Darkness is a compelling piece of writing. It is famous for portraying the atrocities of the colonial regime in the Congo (the darkness refers equally to the Belgians as to the dark continent)) but the surprise for me was the quality of the writing.
The story is told aloud by a story-teller, as in Lord Jim, which is a clunky way of structuring the writing, but Conrad makes it work. While an expose, it is not a polemic. The awful bits are told, almost as aside. No effort is made to comment. The reader is being told a different story - the Congo seems to be the background. But of course, the Belgian regime is really the core of the book, and the apparent structure just a device. It works so well.
The other stories are good to read, but not up to the standard of Heart of Darkness. Tether is over written, too embellished - the story drowns in words in a way that is a total contrast to Heart of Darkness.
Great stuff. Read May 2014. ( )

my recent reading of the poisonwood bible definitely enhanced my reading of this book (for context) because it talks about nearly the same situation - white colonization of the congo, and the ravaging of the land and people by the whites, as well as their lack of understanding of the native people. i had to keep in mind while reading, that it was written in 1899 and it's not fair to judge a writer by today's standards for social justice. i recognize that it might be easier for me to say that as a white person, i can somehow justify the use of the n word in this book. but i also wonder at his purpose for his depiction of the native people, if he was drawing attention to the injustice or perpetuating it. it certainly seems that his intention is to show the destruction of the land and people. i'm just not sure if he does this from a place of true understanding of the congolese or not. he does say "The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much." for me, though, the writing was a bit dense and hard to get through, with awkward sentence structure, but at the same time the language was fantastic. in retrospect i actually wish i'd read this book aloud. it's so short that it's possible to do this, and i think the language comes through better that way.

my favorite 2 quotes, one for content and one for language:

"'I don't like work - no man does - but I like what is in the work, - the chance to find yourself. Your own reality - for yourself, not for others - what no other man can ever know.'"

"'The sun was low; and leaning forward side by side, they seemed to be tugging painfully uphill their two ridiculous shadows of unequal length, that trailed behind them slowly over the tall grass without bending a single blade.'" ( )
