Conrad’s Heart of Darkness — Free Audiobook Podcasts

Joseph Con­rad would be turn­ing 150 years old, and to mark the occa­sion, The Guardian has tak­en a good look back at the Pol­ish-born writer who wrote some of Eng­land’s finest nov­els, even though Eng­lish was his third lan­guage. (Pol­ish and French were his first two.) Con­rad’s mas­ter­piece, of course, is The Heart of Dark­ness (1899), and we’ll take this oppor­tu­ni­ty to high­light two free audio­book ver­sions of the text. The first ver­sion comes rec­om­mend­ed by a read­er over at Metafil­ter. You can find the mp3 files here. A second/different ver­sion can be found on iTunes. (Both ver­sions per­ma­nent­ly reside in our Audio­book Pod­cast Col­lec­tion.)
