About the Author

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski) was a British writer of Polish descent; he became a British subject in 1886. Popular during the noontide of the British Empire, Conrad had been a sailor and usually wrote about nautical or seaboard topics. His experiences with the horrors of colonialism in the Congo influenced his seminal work HEART OF DARKNESS.
