Heart of Darkness

Joseph Conrad, 1902
Famous for: THE HORROR! THE HORROR!

Just in case you were tempted to think that the Congo River in Heart of Darkness is a happy place, check out Conrad’s first description of it—less than 10 pages into the novel. He wrote that it resembles, “an immense snake uncoiled.”

Sounds like a symbol to us!
