Meet the Author

Conrad is regarded as one of the great novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and then always with a marked Polish accent). He wrote stories and novels, predominantly with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit by the demands of duty and honour. Conrad was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature. While some of his works have a strain of romanticism, he is viewed as a precursor of modernist literature. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors.

    Wow

    This is my introduction to Conrad, and as good a start as any for me. Even more so as English was his THIRD language. His descriptions of life at sea as well as on land are simply stunning. Perfectly crafted sentences as well as paragraphs, many of which I will take to my grave. Not to get "All School Yard" on you but...Conrad Rules!!!
