Overview

Per liberarsi dalla fastidiosa etichetta di scrittore d'avventura, Conrad sosteneva di mirare a un elemento ancora più inquieto e pericoloso del mare: l'implacabile oceano della vita umana. Sono infatti l'inquietudine, la pericolosità e la mutevolezza a legare questi cinque racconti, per altro di ispirazione molto diversa tra loro.

Over the next three decades he revolutionized the English novel with books such as Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, and especially Heart of Darkness, his best-known and most influential work.
