Conrad's most technically ambitious work is a psychologically penetrating portrait of a young woman's transformation from a vulnerable, almost tragic figure to a self-respecting woman--and Conrad's only novel to feature a female protagonist.

About the Author
Joseph Conrad (born; 3 December 1857 - 3 August 1924) was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. He joined the British merchant marine in 1878, and was granted British nationality in 1886. Though he did not speak English fluently until his twenties, he was a master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. He wrote stories and novels, many with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an impassive, inscrutable universe.
