Essay from the year 2018 in the subject English - History of Literature, Eras, grade: 1,7, University of Hildesheim (Institut für englische Sprache und Literatur), course: English Literature - Female Agency in the 20th century, language: English, abstract: This paper has the intention to display that the portrayal of women in Joseph Conrads "Heart of Darkness" is sexist and shows characteristic differences between the male and female gender in terms of intellect, dignity, power and character. The novella "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad has been discussed in depth by various students, professors and literature experts. Opinions vary widely in the racism debate, colonization / imperialism, and the representation of the female gender. For many it is a great piece of fiction and far ahead of its time. For others, the advocacy of slavery and imperialism as well as the oppression of women characterizes this novella.

Joseph Conrad s Heart of Darkness

By implying that his fictional process is ultimately rooted in the actual experience of his visit to the Congo in 1890, Conrad is in fact insisting that his narrative be seen as a credible version of the white experience in the Congo.

Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad's fictional account of a journey up the Congo river in 1890, raises important questions about colonialism and narrative theory. This casebook contains materials relevant to a deeper understanding of the origins and reception of this controversial text, including Conrad's own story "An Outpost of Progress," together with a little-known memoir by one of Conrad's oldest English friends, a brief history of the Congo Free State by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and a parody of Conrad by Max Beerbohm. A wide range of theoretical approaches are also represented, examining Conrad's text in terms of cultural, historical, textual, stylistic, narratological, post-colonial, feminist, and reader-response criticism. The volume concludes with an interview in which Conrad compares his adventures on the Congo with Mark Twain's experiences as a Mississippi pilot.

Literature Review from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: University, , course: Modern Novel, language: English, abstract: This short text examines the metaphysical dimension in Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness". Conrad has created Heart of Darkness in such a way that the literary devices of symbolism, imagery, paradox and personification act as a catalyst for bringing out the metaphysical meaning behind the literal text. The physical journey of Marlowe to Congo, the atrocities he witnesses there and the insight he gains – all of it is fleshed out and given emblematic form on a metaphysical dimension.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1999 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2, Universität Duisburg-Essen (FB Anglistik), Veranstaltung: Seminar Joseph Conrad-Short Fiction, 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Orson Welles, einer der bedeutendsten Regisseure des 20. Jahrhunderts war begeistert von Conrads Erzähltechnik und Conrads Art, die Dinge so in Worte zu kleiden, dass einem beim Lesen ein Film in seinen prächtigsten Bildern und Farben vor Augen abläuft. ,,... Es ist tragisch, ja, es ist so dunkel, wie etwas nur dunkel sein kann. Es ist das Herz der Dunkelheit, ganz gewiss. Vermutlich ist ,,schwermütig" das beste Wort dafür, aber die Geschichte ist auch so beängstigend. ..." Nicht nur Welles hatte Schwierigkeiten die Wirkung in Worte zu fassen, die Conrads Erzählung bei den meisten Lesern hinterlässt. Jedes Wort in Conrads Geschichten müsste - oder besser :wäre es wert - auf seine psychologische Bedeutung hin untersucht zu werden. Und selbst wenn man dies noch so akribisch tun würde, hätte man die wirklich ,,richtige" Intention dieses Autors nicht unbedingt herausgefunden. Da eine solche Untersuchung den Rahmen dieser Proseminar -Arbeit sprengen würde, möchte ich mich bei ,,Heart of Darkness" darauf beschränken, die typischen und immer wiederkehrenden Eigenarten der Conradschen Erzählung zu betrachten. Im Folgenden werden in einer kurzen Zusammenfassung zunächst der Autor und seine Geschichte,,Heart of Darkness" vorgestellt. Im zweiten Kapitel wird eine Textanalyse vorgenommen, wobei die Rahmenhandlung von der Binnenhandlung gesondert betrachtet wird. Abschließend gebe ich einen Abriss über die Kritik an Conrads Werken und werde sie im Schlusswort mit meinen eigenen Eindrücken kommentieren.

OHara argues that Joseph Conrads work speaks directly to readers in a way that none of his contemporaries can. His skepticism, pessimism, emphasis on the importance and fragility of community, and the difficulties of escaping history are important tools for understanding the modern political world.
