Heart of Darkness
The most famous, repeatedly filmed story of Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness” continues to influence the minds of people. The work in our time sounds incredibly creepy and relevant. This work has a fairly strong psychoanalysis. Conrad reveals the hidden corners of the human soul. Any catastrophe or phenomenon takes on a symbolic and philosophical character, whether it be a ghost, a typhoon or the mysterious darkness of impenetrable jungles. In the story “Heart of Darkness” in the focus of Konradovsky’s view – evil. Evil external – the jungle, the elements, darkness, becomes an evil internal, primitive, at the level of instincts. Beginning with the description of the hostile river, the Aboriginal people, the author gradually shifts the emphasis on the man, a certain Kurtz, who is the portrayal of the hero of Marlowe, his dark corners of the soul. It’s not a demon, not a person, a character that subordinates itself to the will of other people.
