The "Heart of Darkness" is the English sailor's travels chronicle into a deep of Africa. You will face here not only with jungle, fever, cannibals, but also with the picture of fight between the civilization and the nature. There is the wild, irrational and powerful nature. The field of battle is the a soul of human. The reader will be cognize himself. The final goal is not only the lost station where the white man imagined himself a God and doing disgusting and monstrous things. It is also depths of soul, where the reader would have to find the answers of the question: what is the norm and what is the madness? Does the human know himself? Or is the knowledge a template, which is imposed by civilization?
