Joseph Conrad’s work Heart of Darkness is the case this week, but I somehow added more love for T.S. Eliot and Hunter S. Thompson.

Here are the links relating to the episode:

Here’s a nice biography on Joseph Conrad.  I barely touched on the man and his life in the episode, so give this a read.

This is an article that talks about the racism in Heart of Darkness.  It’s not a condemnation of the book, it argues the work can still be relevant, actually.

Okay, the source of this article is really bizarre, and I don’t see the point of the article when talking about war, but this is a great look at Heart of Darkness, warts and all.  Again, weird source, interesting article.

Heart of Darkness was number 32 on a list of 100 Best Novels from The Guardian.

Bear with me here, this is a message board with people talking openly and honestly about Heart of Darkness as readers and I got sucked into reading this for way too long today.  If you haven’t read the book but are interested, this is a must look.

The Hollow Men by T.S. Eliot.  Did I mention yet how much I love T.S. Eliot?
