Episode 6: Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad - Featured image

Heart of Darkness is one of the most famous and most important works to come out of the colonialist era. Marlow’s venture into the Congo to find Kurtz is gripping and dark, and raises many questions about civility and the savagery that lies in every person. Andrew and John discuss whether, after reading the book, one can view Western Civilisation and its history in the same way as they had before.

John Roskam and Andrew Bolt discuss the book, its themes and the life of Joseph Conrad
