“‘…he seemed to stare… with that wide and immense stare embracing, condemning, loathing all the universe. I seemed to hear the whispered cry, ‘The horror! The horror!’’” On a becalmed yawl in the Thames estuary, Marlow tells a tale of Africa. His job there is to find the enigmatic Kurtz, but his journey farther and farther upriver reveals the brutality of the white Imperialists who run the country. Established as one of the great English novels, and a story of mythic power, Heart of Darkness is rich in meaning—allusive, enthralling, and haunting.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With his deep, resonant voice, David Horovitch could make the tax code intriguing. He gives each aspect of the story—from its ‘frame’ in England, through its central horror in Africa, to its European coda—subtle and tactful treatment, giving now politically incorrect comments on colonialism, for example, just the right light turn. His voice fits the somber grimness of the story, while giving it its proper touch of the absurd…This is an absorbing performance of a key work in twentieth-century literature.” AudioFile
