Literary walk: Joseph Conrad

Literary walk: Joseph Conrad

Modereted by: Grzegorz Jankowicz
On July 28, 1914, the outbreak of World War I, after 40 years of absence Joseph Conrad returned to his hometown of Krakow. The writer wanted to visit the city in which he grew up, from which he set off into the world at first as a sailor, then as a writer. He appeared at the Krakow railway station at about 16:00. Armed conflict did not yet reach Krakow, so unaware of everything that was going on Conrad went to the Grand Hotel to leave his luggage there and then, in the company of his son – Boris, and Joseph Retinger, Conrad went for a walk. He visited all the places that historically played an important role in his life. He was convinced that for the past 40 years the city did not change one bit. That everything was as before. The next morning, when the army appeared in the streets, Conrad realized that the walk from the previous day was not a nostalgic journey to the reaches of his past, but a trip to the heart of darkness that lay not on a remote African shore, but at the heart of his own city.
We invite all those interested to take a stroll around Krakow in the footsteps of Conrad. We recreated the entire route, which the writer crossed on July 28, 1914, and at the same time, we will re-tell the story of his return, which will be correlated with the story in his most famous work, the Heart of Darkness.
