Laurence Davies on Heart of Darkness and The Secret Agent
Wed 23 Aug 11:00am - 12:30pm
Professor Laurence Davies, editor of The Collected Letters of Joseph Conrad, looks at two of Conrad’s novels. Heart of Darkness, narrated by Marlow, is a study in obsession as he recounts his journey in search of an ivory trader. The Secret Agent, set in London, explores ideas of anarchy and terrorism. Expect an open discussion from the start: you can either read the books ahead of the event, or be inspired to pick them up afterwards.
