He cried in a whisper at some image, at some vision - he cried out twice, a cry that was no more than a breath: 'The horror! The horror!' This classic journey into the human soul explores man's infinite capacity for both good and evil. Five men who share the bond of the sea enjoy a jaunt on the Thames. Marlow, the youngest, tells of the time when he ventured forth in search of "a blank place on the map" and encountered the enigmatic Kurtz - a European who had reverted to savagery in an isolated native trading post. Moviegoers may be familiar with the story of Marlow's progress from innocence through a comprehension of evil to maturity and self-awareness - it was the inspiration for Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now.
