Joseph Conrad, (1857-1924) born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, was a Polish-born English novelist. Most of his works featured a nautical setting and depicted trials of the human spirit by the demands of duty and honor. Before he started writing, Conrad joined the French merchant marines and later joined the British navy. Some of his numerous works include, Heart of Darkness, The Arrow of Gold, The Secret Agent, An Outcast of the Islands, and Lord Jim.
An Outcast of the Islandsby Joseph Conrad, Hans van Marle
AN OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS is the story of a self deluded South Seas trader who, for reasons that are as false as his own self-assessment, marries a Malay woman. Ostracized by his own society, in time he earns the contempt of the natives. Hence, he truly becomes "an outcast of the islands."
