About this product
- DescriptionFollowing his epic Moby Dick in Pictures, artist Matt Kish has set himself upon an equally impressive, and less harrowing, task: illustrating each page of Joseph Conrad's masterpiece, Heart of Darkness. Kish's rich, imaginative drawings and paintings mirror Conrad's original text and illuminate Marlow's journey into the heart of the Congo, and into the depths of the human soul. Heart of Darkness is a text ripe for analysis and argument, formally and thematically; it explores matters of imperialism, racism, gender, and the duality of human nature. Kish's illustrations add ather layer, and ather voice in the conversation. His visual interpretation of Heart of Darkness is t just essential for fans and students of Conrad; it's a work of art all its own. Kish's introduction lends context to his approach, details his relationship and struggle with Conrad's work, and illuminates his own creative process. An index in the rear of the book catalogs the sentences and phrases that inspired each of the one hundred original pieces of art.
- Author BiographyJoseph Conrad is widely accepted to be one of the greatest writers in the English language. Along with Heart of Darkness, he's the author of Lord Jim, Nostromo, and numerous other novels, stories, and essays. Matt Kish is a self-taught artist from Ohio, where he lives with his wife, their two frogs, and far too many books. He has created one illustration for every page of Moby-Dick, fully illustrated Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, and had his work appear in The Chicagoan, Propeller Magazine, and the Salt Hill Journal. He has also illustrated The Alligators of Abraham by Robert Kloss and the upcoming The Desert Places by Robert Kloss and Amber Sparks.
