Joseph Conrad wrote the Heart of Darkness in 1902 and came from a polish family. His parents were nobles and therefore he was exiled so ironically he never lived there. His parents were against the russian ruler who were in control at that time. Raised by his uncle on his moms side he learned french first and his 3rd language was english. He was a sailor who traveled all over Europe and later retired and began his career in writting. The Heart of Darkness is one of his most popular works and was published independently.
Yes, it might be fair to characterize Conrad as an exile from Continental politics and lifestyle since he spent 19 years as a merchant sailor traveling at sea only to settle in the far corner of Europe--England.
But to be more precise, Conrad travelled, and worked in, islands in the Indian Ocean and Africa (including thee years in the Congo region).
Joseph Conrad author most known for his novel the Heart of Darkness (1902), though his 3rd language the Polish-British writer its known to be one of the greatest English writers. Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness was written in 1902 which then was portrayed as a movie in 1979 Apocalypse Now, both book and movie have the exact plot the main character has to go in a journey to save a man name Kurtz, though the only diffrent thing is that in the novel it takes place in Africa's Congo river snd in the movie it takes place in Vietnam where the main character has to go upriver to rescue a man.
In this novella Marlow is a man that wants to explore the Congo but instead he is as well "infected" with the reality of what is happening there. So I don't think Marlow is misguiding his story but instead tells the intense brutality of imperialism. He is just commenting on what he is seeing. While there he also hears of Kurtz and how others make Kurtz sound like a god, but Kurtz is unlike a god because he deals with the darkness himself.
Joseph Conrad was born on December 3, 1857, and did not have such a great childhood. His mother passed away, and he was separated from his dad, because he was exiled to Siberia . His dream was always to travel to Congo, and once he did, that's where the Heart of Darkness adventures from Marlow came out. The purpose of this story was to provide the differences between Victorian values and the ideals of modernism, which throughout the story there are plenty of examples of civilization. A thing about Heart of Darkness a lot of it is about confusion and imperialism.
Joseph Conrad is debatably best known for "Heart of Darkness." He was born in 1857 and wrote this novel in 1902. Conrad is known as one of the best English writers of his time when that was his third language...yes, third. His first language was French followed by Polish. Its so ironic that a man who picked up the language so late and wasn't as ahead of the curve as the writers he competed against still come out on top.

I enjoyed reading "Heart of Darkness" because it portrayed real life events Joseph Conrad experienced. He introduces many Imperialism concepts like the exploitation of Africans and how some do not survive from the terrors Congo holds. Having survived his voyage through Congo, it potrays him as a mentally strong person.
