Strongly Associated with:   Heart of Darkness
Notes:
Arguably Conrad’s most influential work remains Heart of Darkness, to which many have been introduced by Francis Ford Coppola’s film, Apocalypse Now, inspired by Conrad’s novella and set during the Vietnam War. The themes of Heart of Darkness, and the depiction of a journey into the darkness of the human psyche, still resonate with modern readers.
