I havent read Conrad in a while. These were great essays. Especially rulers of the east and west.

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!!!
