Joseph Conrad - Author

About the Author

Joseph Conrad was born in the Ukraine in 1857 and grew up under Tsarist autocracy. In 1874 Conrad travelled to Marseilles, where he served in French merchant vessels before joining a British ship in 1878 as an apprentice. In 1886 he obtained British nationality. Eight years later he left the sea to devote himself to writing, publishing his first novel, Almayer's Folly, in 1895. The following year he settled in Kent, where he produced within fifteen years such modern classics as Youth, Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent and Under Western Eyes. He continued to write until his death in 1924. J. H. Stape is the author of The Several Lives of Joseph Conrad (1996) and Conrad's Notes on Life and Letters (2004).

The Secret Agent a Simple Tale

The Secret Agent a Simple Tale

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: Paperback Release Date: 02/08/2007

Secret Agent is Joseph Conrad's dark satire on English society, edited with an introduction and notes by Michael Newton in Penguin Classics . In the only novel Conrad set in London, The Secret Agent communicates a profoundly ironic view of human affairs. The story is woven around an attack on the Greenwich Observatory in 1894 masterminded by Verloc, a Russian spy working for the police, and ostensibly a member of an anarchist group in Soho. His masters instruct him to discredit the anarchists in a humiliating fashion, and when his evil plan goes horribly awry, Verloc must deal with the repercussions of his actions. While rooted in the Edwardian period, Conrad's tale remains strikingly contemporary, with its depiction of Londoners gripped by fear of the terrorists living in their midst. This edition of The Secret Agent contains a chronology, further reading, notes and maps of London and Greenwich. In his introduction, Michael Newton discusses London's real-life world of political anarchy, and Conrad's portrayal of the Verlocs' marriage.

This is a new edition of Joseph Conrad's most famous tale. Unlike most other editions, this edition focuses on the time in which Conrad was himself in the Congo (rather than the years after he had left) and draws comparisons and contrasts with Conrad's own experience and therefore allows the reader to consider the tale in the context of Conrad's time in the Congo.

'I asked myself what I was doing there, with a sensation of panic in my heart as though I had blundered into a place of cruel and absurd mysteries not fit for a human being to behold'. Charles Marlow's dark intuition here arrives at the culmination of his physical and psychological quest in search of the infamous ivory-trader Kurtz in Joseph Conrad's most famous short story, Heart of Darkness. Ambiguously drawn to the powerful 'voice' of this autocratic European who has become a self-proclaimed ruler in an African colony, Marlow is increasingly embroiled in Kurtz's life and death: he is finally forced into a radical questioning, not only of his own assumptions, but also of the civilized and imperial pretensions of Western Europe. Offering a freshly-researched text based on the writer's original documents, this edition presents a classic of early modernist fiction in a version that, for the first time, recovers Conrad's preferred wordings, punctuation and narrative structure.

The reaches opened before us and closed behind, as if the forest had stepped leisurely across the water to bar the way for our return. We penetrated deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness. As the peak of European Imperialism, steamboat captain Charles Marlow travels deep into the African Congo on his way to relieve the elusive Mr Kurtz, an ivory trader renowned for his fearsome reputation. On his journey into the unknown Marlow takes a terrifying trip into his own subconscious, overwhelmed by his menacing, perilous and horrifying surroundings. The landscape and the people he meets force him to reflect on human nature and society, and in turn Conrad writes revealingly about hypocrisy, morality and the dangers of imperialism. "e;Heart of Darkness"e; is an eminent instance of the literary evocation of evil, and we can see how it might be regarded as a representation of the concept of original sin in fresh and secular terms. -T. S. EliotThe heavy hypnotic style [of "e;Heart of Darkness"e;] falls around me again, and I am aware of the poverty of my own. -Graham GreeneOne of my favorite books. -William FaulknerConrad endeavored to create a great, massive, multiphase symbol that would render his total vision of the world, his sense of individual destiny, his sense of man's place in nature, his sense of history and society. -Robert Penn Warren

The Rover

Set in the South of France during the waning days of the French Revolution and the early years of Napoleonic rule, The Rover (1923) is the last novel that Conrad completed in his lifetime. A popular success on its publication, it explores, against the backdrop of dramatic political change and the Anglo-French hostilities leading up to the Battle of Trafalgar, the themes of personal and national identity, loyalty and love. The 'Introduction' situates the novel in Conrad's career and traces its sources and contemporary reception. Explanatory notes illuminate literary and historical references and indicate Conrad's sources. The essay on the text and the apparatus lay out the history of the work's composition and publication, detail the interventions in the text by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors and explain editorial policy. This edition of The Rover, established through modern textual scholarship, presents the novel in a form more authoritative than any so far printed.

Heart of Darkness is a novella written by Polish-born writer Joseph Conrad (born Jzef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski). Before its 1902 publication, it appeared as a three-part series (1899) in Blackwood's Magazine. It is widely regarded as a significant work of English literature and part of the Western canon. This highly symbolic story is actually a story within a story, or frame narrative. It follows Marlow as he recounts, from dusk through to late night, his adventure into the Congo to a group of men aboard a ship anchored in the Thames Estuary. The story details an incident when Marlow, an Englishman, took a foreign assignment as a ferry-boat captain, employed by a Belgian trading company. Although the river is never specifically named, readers may assume it is the Congo River, in the Congo Free State, a private colony of King Leopold II. Marlow is employed to transport ivory downriver; however, his more pressing assignment is to return Kurtz, another ivory trader, to civilization in a cover up. Kurtz has a reputation throughout the region.

Die Taten und Erfahrungen der Menschen sind vom Spiel des Zufalls bestimmt - und das fordert Bewahrung.Flora de Barral glaubt, nicht geliebt, kaum gerettet werden zu konnen. Doch der noble Kapitan Anthony rettet sie und sorgt fur ihren Vater, glaubt aber nicht, selbst Anspruch auf Liebe erheben zu durfen, glaubt nicht geliebt zu werden. Ein lebensfremder Idealismus erlegt den Gefuhlen Zwang auf. Erst der dramatische Moment hochster Gefahrdung und Erprobung lost den Bann und den Krampf.Wahrend das Gute scheinbar im Prinzip, in einer abstrakten Lebenshaltung verharren muss, scheint das Bose sein Spiel treiben zu konnen. Bose ist nicht nur der Betruger de Barral, dessen Tochter so spat erst vom Leid und zur wirklichen, wirkenden Liebe befreit wird. Bose ist die ganze englische Gesellschaft, bose der Suffragettenkampf um die Rechte der Frau. Und sarkastisch sind Kapitan Marlows Kommentare zum Geschehen, doch hinter dem Sarkasmus steht der Sinn furs Rechte.

Inmitten der endlosen Weite der Sudsee vollzieht sich auf einer Insel das Schicksal des Sonderlings Axel Heyst, der mit einer jungen Frau vor der Welt gefluchtet ist und dennoch von dieser Welt eingeholt und auf Leben und Tod gefordert wird."e;Das letzte Wort dieses Romans wurde am 29. Mai 1914 niedergeschrieben. Und jenes letzte Wort war der Titel. Damals war Friedenszeit. Da nun der Augenblick der Veroffentlichung herannaht, habe ich erwogen, ob es nicht angebracht sei, das Titelblatt zu andern. Das Wort Sieg jenes strahlende und tragische Ziel hohen Bemuhens, schien zu gro, zu erhaben, um einem einfachen Roman voranstehen zu konnen. Was meine Entscheidung fur diesen Titel vor allem beeinflute, waren die dunklen Eingebungen jenes heidnischen Uberbleibsels von Furcht und Wunderglauben, das immer noch in der Tiefe unserer alten Humanitat lauert. Sieg war das letzte Wort, das ich in Friedenszeiten geschrieben hatte. Es war mein letzter literarischer Einfall, bevor die Pforten des Janustempels tosend aufsprangen und uberall auf der Welt Herz, Geist und Gewissen der Menschen erbeben lieen. Mit einer solchen Fugung durfte nicht leichtfertig umgegangen werden. Und so entschlo ich mich, das Wort stehenzulassen, in der gleichen Zuversicht, in der schlichte Burger des alten Rom das Omen anzunehmen pflegten."e; Joseph Conrad schrieb diese Satze in seinen Bemerkungen zur ersten Ausgabe des Romans.

Das wahre Abenteuer ist nicht das der Rettung einer gestrandeten Jacht und ihrer in Bedrangnis geratenen Besitzer, nicht der Kampf um die Herrschart in jener unzuganglichen Region - es ist das Abenteuer eines festen Herzens, das jah verwundet wird.

Tales of Unrest

Tales of Unrest

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: Paperback Release Date: 31/05/2018

These five stories were collected and published as Tales of Unrest in 1898, shortly before Heart of Darkness, the first of Conrad's major novels. Ranging from the faraway and unfamiliar, where the acquisitiveness of colonial adventure is damningly exposed, to an ostensibly ordinary London household, these disparate tales display Conrad's ability to explore and lay bare human nature. Set in Central Africa, `An Outpost of Progress' is suffused with irony and represents a ruthlessly mocking view of European imperialism. `Karain' and `The Lagoon' are exotic tales of the Malay Archipelago, with the former telling of disharmony and discord between Western traders and the indigenous inhabitants. `The Return' recounts the story of, in the author's own words, a desirable middle-class town residence which somehow manages to produce a sinister effect . The collection also includes `The Idiots', the first of Conrad's short stories to be serialized in an English magazine.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure. This elegant edition features an afterword by Dr Keith Carabine, specialist in American literature and former chair of the Joseph Conrad society. One night on the Thames, Charles Marlowe tells his fellow sailors the vivid and brutal tale of his time as a riverboat captain in the Belgian Congo. From the mists of London we are whisked to the darkness of Africa's colonial heart - and into the thrall of the tyrannical Kurtz, an ivory trader who has established himself as a terrifying demi-god. Sinister and incisive, Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad has retained the fascination of readers and scholars alike. It is accompanied here by the stories with which it has been published since 1902: the autobiographical Youth, and the tale of an old man's fall from fortune, The End of the Tether.

Under Western Eyes

Under Western Eyes

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 03/05/2018

Some Joseph Conrad's works are seen by critics as being influenced by works of a famous Russian writer Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Despite that he himself claimed that he allegedly does not like this writer, for example, when talking about Dostoyevsky's novel "e;The Brothers Karamazov"e;, 'It's terrifically bad and impressive and exasperating'. Yet, in Conrad's novel 'The Eyes of the West', which talks about Russian emigre-revolutionists an attentive reader will undoubtedly feel Dostoevsky's influence on the work of the great English writer. Pretty illustrations by Dmitrii Rybalko provide you with new impressions from reading this legendary story.

McVeer, the protagonist, is a captain of a steamer 'Nyan-Shan'. A truly phlegmatic and a prosaic person, he lacks virtually any abstract thinking and imagination. But this is true only at a first glance. A horrific storm sets challenges not only for the captain, who transforms literally in front of the eyes, but also for the entire crew. Will they survive through the ambush of the element? Will the ship stand?Pretty illustrations by Dmitrii Rybalko provide you with new impressions from reading this legendary story.

Each time, sailing to the island, he took two or three silver ingots, believing that "e;it is necessary to become rich slowly."e; But every day the former merry fellow became more and more withdrawn and irritable. Treasures took possession of him. And his life was interrupted by an accidental, but accurate shot of an old soldier.

The story's narrator, Marlow, tells of a trip up the Congo River to rescue a legendary ivory trader, Kurtz, from a mysterious illness. Considered Conrad's masterpiece, and one of the greatest novels of the 20th century (it was written and serialized in 1899 but not published in book form until 1902), others have condemned the dehumanizing depictions of Africans as racist and outdated.

Heart of Darkness

Heart of Darkness

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 02/03/2018

Heart of Darkness (1899) is a novella by Polish-British novelist Joseph Conrad, about a voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State, in the heart of Africa, by the story's narrator Charles Marlow. Marlow tells his story to friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames, London, England. This setting provides the frame for Marlow's story of his obsession with the ivory trader Kurtz, which enables Conrad to create a parallel between London and Africa as places of darkness. Central to Conrad's work is the idea that there is little difference between so-called civilised people and those described as savages; Heart of Darkness raises questions about imperialism and racism. Originally issued as a three-part serial story in Blackwood's Magazine to celebrate the thousandth edition of the magazine, Heart of Darkness has been widely re-published and translated into many languages. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Heart of Darkness sixty-seventh on their list of the hundred best novels in English of the twentieth century.

According to Wikipedia: "e;Joseph Conrad (1857 - 1924) was a Polish-born English novelist. Many critics regard him as one of the greatest novelists in the English language-a fact that is remarkable, as he did not learn to speak English fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a strong Polish accent). He became a naturalized British subject in 1886. Conrad is recognized as a master prose stylist. Some of his works have a strain of romanticism, but more importantly he is recognized as an important forerunner of modernist literature.

According to Wikipedia: "e;The Nigger of the 'Narcissus': A Tale of the Sea (1897) is a novella by Joseph Conrad. Because of its quality compared to earlier works, some have described it as marking the start of Conrad's major (middle) period; others have placed it as the best work of his early (first) period. John G. Peters said of it in 2006: "e;The unfortunately titled The Nigger of the "e;Narcissus"e; (titled The Children of the Sea in the first American edition) is Conrad's best work of his early period. In fact, were it not for the book's title, it undoubtedly would be read more often than it is currently. At one time, it was one of Conrad's most frequently read books. In part because of its brevity, in part because of its adventure qualities, and in part because of its literary qualities, the novel used to attract a good deal of attention."e; The author's preface to the novel, regarded as a manifesto of literary impressionism, is considered one of Conrad's significant pieces of non-fiction writing."e;

In truth I was clinging to it desperately, all the more desperately because, against my will, I could not help feeling that there was something changed in my relation to it."e;Almayer's Folly,"e; had been finished and done with.The mood itself was gone.But it had left the memory of an experience that, both in thought and emotion was unconnected with the sea, and I suppose that part of my moral being which is rooted in consistency was badly shaken..."e;

Conrad's summaries, prefaces, and ruminations about his books. According to Wikipedia: "e;Joseph Conrad (1857 - 1924) was a Polish-born English novelist. Many critics regard him as one of the greatest novelists in the English language-a fact that is remarkable, as he did not learn to speak English fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a strong Polish accent). He became a naturalized British subject in 1886. Conrad is recognized as a master prose stylist. Some of his works have a strain of romanticism, but more importantly he is recognized as an important forerunner of modernist literature.

Personal Record

A Personal Record is an autobiographical work (or "e;fragment of biography"e;) by Joseph Conrad. It has also been published under the titles A Personal Record: Some Reminiscences and Some Reminiscences. Notoriously unreliable and digressive in structure, it is nonetheless the principal contemporary source for information about the author's life. It tells about his schooling in Russian Poland, his sailing in Marseille, the influence of his Uncle Tadeusz, and the writing of Almayer's Folly. It provides a glimpse of how Conrad wished to be seen by his British public, as well as being an atmospheric work of art. The "e;Familiar Preface"e; Conrad wrote for it includes the often quoted lines:"e;Those who read me know my conviction that the world, the temporal world, rests on a few very simple ideas; so simple that they must be as old as the hills. It rests notably, among others, on the idea of Fidelity."e;Conrad wrote a new 'Author's Note' to A Personal Record for the Doubleday collected edition of his works (published in 1920) in which he discussed his friendship with the British colonial official and writer Hugh Clifford.

The Nigger of the 'Narcissus' A Tale of the Sea

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/12/2017

Charting a homeward-bound voyage from Bombay to London aboard a sailing ship, The Nigger of the 'Narcissus' (1897) captured the late-Victorian era's maritime obsession and identified the strikingly original talent of Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) as a sea writer in what has proved to be a landmark of sea literature. The Introduction situates the novel in Conrad's career and traces its origins and reception. Explanatory notes illuminate literary and historical references, identify real-life places and indicate Conrad's sources and influences. The essay on the text and the apparatus lay out the history of the work's composition and publication, and detail interventions by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors. Also included are notes explaining literary and historical references, a glossary of nautical terms, illustrations, including maps and pictures of early drafts, and appendixes. This edition of The Nigger of the 'Narcissus' presents the novel and its preface in forms more authoritative than any so far printed, and restores a text that has circulated in defective forms since its original publication.

Rescue

Rescue

"e;The book is absorbingly interesting: dramatic, subtle, fascinating with allurement."e; ― The New York Times.Captain Tom Lingard is on his way to help his friends, a Malay prince and princess, reclaim their stolen land when he gets distracted by a marooned yacht. Lingard feels obliged to help his fellow Europeans out of their plight — and he's increasingly attracted to Edith Travers, the married woman on board — but his rescue of the pleasure boat and its passengers plunges the captain deep into a dangerous vortex of local politics.One of Conrad's less familiar tales, this powerfully intense novel provides atmospheric seafaring glimpses of the Malay Archipelago along with a suspenseful plot that builds to an explosive climax. The Rescue is chronologically the first in the author's Lingard trilogy, which includes Almayer's Folly and An Outcast of the Islands, although it appeared years later. Begun in 1896 and published in 1920, just four years before Conrad's death, the novel adds resonance to Conrad's other works on colonialism and imperialism.

Joseph Conrad's 1904 adventure novel, set amid the mist-covered mountains of a fictional South American republic, spins a colorful tale of capitalist exploitation and rebellion. The story begins halfway through the revolution, employing flashbacks and glimpses of the future to depict the lure of silver and its effects on men - corrupting and destroying some, revealing the strengths of others. Conrad's deep moral consciousness and masterful narrative technique are at their best in Nostromo, one of his greatest works.

An English boy in a simple town has dreams bigger than the outdoors and embarks at an early age into the sailor's life. The waters he travels reward him with the ability to explore the human spirit, while Joseph Conrad launches the story into both an exercise of his technical prowess and a delicately crafted picture of a character who reaches the status of a literary hero.

Insistently dramatic in its storytelling, spectacular in its recreation of the subtropical landscape, this picture of an insurrectionary society and the opportunities it provides for moral corruption gleams on every page with its author's dry, undeceived, impeccable intelligence.

Heart of Darkness

Heart of Darkness

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 07/11/2017

The reaches opened before us and closed behind, as if the forest had stepped leisurely across the water to bar the way for our return. We penetrated deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness. As the peak of European Imperialism, steamboat captain Charles Marlow travels deep into the African Congo on his way to relieve the elusive Mr Kurtz, an ivory trader renowned for his fearsome reputation. On his journey into the unknown Marlow takes a terrifying trip into his own subconscious, overwhelmed by his menacing, perilous and horrifying surroundings. The landscape and the people he meets force him to reflect on human nature and society, and in turn Conrad writes revealingly about hypocrisy, morality and the dangers of imperialism.

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 01/11/2017

The reaches opened before us and closed behind, as if the forest had stepped leisurely across the water to bar the way for our return. We penetrated deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness. As the peak of European Imperialism, steamboat captain Charles Marlow travels deep into the African Congo on his way to relieve the elusive Mr Kurtz, an ivory trader renowned for his fearsome reputation. On his journey into the unknown Marlow takes a terrifying trip into his own subconscious, overwhelmed by his menacing, perilous and horrifying surroundings. The landscape and the people he meets force him to reflect on human nature and society, and in turn Conrad writes revealingly about hypocrisy, morality and the dangers of imperialism.

Secret Agent

Secret Agent

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 04/07/2017

The Secret Agent is a novel by Joseph Conrad. The story is set in London in 1886 and deals largely with the life of Mr. Verloc and his job as a spy. The Secret Agent is also notable as it is one of Conrad's later political novels, which move away from his typical tales of seafaring. The novel deals broadly with the notions of anarchism, espionage, and terrorism. It portrays anarchist or revolutionary groups before many of the social uprisings of the twentieth century. However, it also deals with exploitation, particularly with regard to Verloc's relationship with his brother-in-law Stevie. The novel is set in London in 1886 and follows the life of Mr. Verloc, a secret agent. Verloc is also a businessman who owns a shop which sells pornographic material, contraceptives, and bric-a-brac. Verloc's friends are a group of anarchists. The Secret Agent was ranked the 46th best novel of the 20th century by Modern Library.

Lord Jim is a novel by Joseph Conrad. An early and primary event is the abandonment of a ship in distress by its crew including the young British seaman Jim. He is publicly censured for this action and the novel follows his later attempts at coming to terms with his past. Jim, a young British seaman, becomes first mate on the Patna, a ship full of pilgrims travelling to Mecca for the hajj. Jim joins his captain and other crew members in abandoning the ship and its passengers. A few days later, they are picked up by a British ship. However, the Patna and its passengers are later also saved, and the reprehensible actions of the crew are exposed. The court strips him of his navigation command certificate for his dereliction of duty. Jim is angry with himself, both for his moment of weakness, and for missing an opportunity to be a 'hero'. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Lord Jim #85 on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.

Marlow, der den Indischen Ozean, den Pazifik, das Gelbe Meer bereits kennt, reist also entlang der Kuste eines ihm unverstandlichen Afrika zur Mundung des groen Stroms und ubernimmt, flussaufwarts oberhalb der Stromschnellen, seinen Flussdampfer, der zwischenzeitlich auf Grund gelaufen und leckgeschlagen ist. Joseph Conrads Erzahlung Heart of Darkness, in der Hochzeit des Imperialismus entstanden, beleuchtet Praxis und Wirkung der Kolonialpolitik auf Betroffene und Ausfuhrende kolonialer Macht kritisch, bleibt aber selbst nicht frei von Vorurteilen. Die komplexe Thematik ist in Heart of Darkness erfahrbar. Handelnde Charaktere und Personen als Spiegel europaischer Kolonialpraxis am Ausgang des 19. Jahrhunderts geben der imperialen Idee ein Gesicht und sind weit uber das Ende extremistischer Expansionsideologien zum Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges in Betrachtung neokolonialer Tendenzen immanent geblieben. Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) war ein Schriftsteller polnischer Herkunft, der seine Werke in englischer Sprache verfasste. Seine bekanntesten Werke sind die Romane Lord Jim, Nostromo und Herz der Finsternis. Letzteres ist bis heute der meistzitierte und wirkmchtigste Roman.

Nostromo

Nostromo

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 01/06/2017

Nostromo"e;, den Joseph Conrad im Jahr 1904 veroffentlichte, ist ein exemplarisch politischer Roman und zugleich eines der bedeutendsten Werke seines Autors. Handlungsort ist der fiktive sudamerikanische Staat Costaguana. Eine ertragreiche Silbermine zieht europaische Investoren an, deren moderner Industriekapitalismus alle Beteiligten korrumpiert - von der spanischen Oberschicht uber die Einwanderer bis zu den verarmten Minenarbeitern. Fur den Italiener Nostromo, Titelheld des Romans, bieten die Vielzahl der politischen und wirtschaftlichen Konflikte jedoch die Chance, zu Macht und Wohlstand zu gelangen. Die Orthografie dieser Ausgabe wurde der neuen deutschen Rechtschreibung angepasst und die Interpunktion behutsam modernisiert.

Herz der Finsternis

Herz der Finsternis

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 01/06/2017

Joseph Conrad schrieb seine 1899 veroffentlichte Erzahlung unter dem Eindruck der Kolonialherrschaft in Afrika und vor allem angesichts der Grauel an der schwarzen Bevolkerung im belgischen Kongogebiet. In dem Urwaldfluss, den der junge Kapitan Marlow mit seinem klapprigen Dampfer hinauffahrt, um den verschollenen Handelsagenten Kurtz zu suchen, ist der zentralafrikanische Strom unschwer zu erkennen. Conrad geht jedoch weit uber die politische Kritik am Kolonialismus hinaus: Als Marlow den Agenten schlielich findet, der in seiner Handelsniederlassung ein blutiges Terrorregime fuhrt, gelangt er in das Herz der Finsternis"e;, einen furchterregenden Ort, wo Moral und Humanitat zusammengebrochen sind.

Secret Agent

Secret Agent

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 19/05/2017

The Secret Agent is a novel by Joseph Conrad, published in 1907. The story is set in London in 1886 and deals with Mr. Adolf Verloc and his work as a spy for an unnamed country (presumably Russia). The Secret Agent is one of Conrad's later political novels in which he moved away from his former tales of seafaring. The novel deals broadly with anarchism, espionage and terrorism. It also deals with exploitation of the vulnerable in Verloc's relationship with his brother-in-law Stevie, who has a learning difficulty. Because of its terrorism theme, it was noted as "e;one of the three works of literature most cited in the American media"e; two weeks after the September 11 attacks. The novel is set in London in 1886 and follows the life of Mr. Verloc, a secret agent. Verloc is also a businessman who owns a shop which sells pornographic material, contraceptives, and bric-a-brac. He lives with his wife Winnie, his mother-in-law, and his brother-in-law, Stevie. Stevie has a mental disability, possibly autism,[4] which causes him to be very excitable; his sister, Verloc's wife, attends to him, treating him more as a son than as a brother. Verloc's friends are a group of anarchists of which Comrade Ossipon, Michaelis, and "e;The Professor"e; are the most prominent. Although largely ineffectual as terrorists, their actions are known to the police. The group produce anarchist literature in the form of pamphlets entitled F.P., an acronym for The Future of the Proletariat.

Victory

Victory

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 15/05/2017

"e;The world is a bad dog. It will bite you if you give it a chance,"e; maintains Axel Heyst, a Swedish drifter in the Pacific islands. Heyst's attempt to remain aloof from the rest of humanity is challenged by his compassion for Lena, a destitute orchestra girl. Defying Lena's abusive boss, the two flee to an isolated paradise. But the vengeful employer sets a trio of miscreants on the lovers' trail, leading Heyst's growing moral courage to a deadly reckoning.First published in 1915, Victory is Conrad's last great novel. Its central question, whether a man of moral sensitivity can function in a corrupt and derelict world, is treated with the author's fundamental pessimism and with faith in the possibility of redemption. The tale abounds in elements characteristic of the great storyteller's later work: an exotic setting, richly and powerfully evoked; muscular prose; complex characterization; and a compelling examination of the human capacity for good and evil.

Lord Jim

Lord Jim

Author: Joseph Conrad, Sheba Blake Format: eBook Release Date: 20/04/2017

Lord Jim is a novel by Joseph Conrad. An early and primary event in the story is the abandonment of a passenger ship in distress by its crew, including a young British seaman named Jim. He is publicly censured for this action and the novel follows his later attempts at coming to terms with himself and his past. Recovered from an injury, Jim seeks a position on the Patna, a steamer serving the transport of 800 "e;pilgrims of an exacting faith"e; to a port on the Red Sea. He is hired as first mate. After some days of smooth sailing, the ship hits something in the night and begins taking on water. The captain thinks the ship will sink, and Jim agrees, but wants to put the passengers on the few boats before that can happen. The captain and two other crewmen think only to save themselves, freeing a boat. The helmsmen remain, as no order has been given to do otherwise. In a crucial moment, Jim jumps into the boat with the captain. A few days later, they are picked up by an outbound steamer. When they reach port, they learn that the Patna and its passengers were brought in safely by a crew from a French gun ship. The captain's actions in abandoning both ship and passengers are against the code of seamen and the crew is publicly vilified. When the other men leave town before the magistrate's court can be convened, Jim is the only crew member left to testify. All lose their certificates to sail. Brierly, a captain of perfect reputation who is on the panel of the court, commits suicide days after the trial.

Heart of Darkness

Author: Joseph Conrad, Sheba Blake Format: eBook Release Date: 19/04/2017

Heart of Darkness is a novella by Polish-British novelist Joseph Conrad, about a voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State, in the heart of Africa, by the story's narrator Marlow. Marlow tells his story to friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames, London, England. This setting provides the frame for Marlow's story of his obsession with the ivory trader Kurtz, which enables Conrad to create a parallel between London and Africa as places of darkness. Central to Conrad's work is the idea that there is little difference between so-called civilised people and those described as savages; Heart of Darkness raises questions about imperialism and racism. Originally published as a three-part serial story in Blackwood's Magazine, Heart of Darkness has been variously published and translated into many languages. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Heart of Darkness as the sixty-seventh of the hundred best novels in English of the twentieth century.

Author: Joseph Conrad, Golden Deer Classics Format: eBook Release Date: 15/04/2017

"e;An Outpost of Progress"e; is a short story written in July 1897 by Joseph Conrad, drawing on his own experience at Congo. The story deals with two European men, named Kayerts and Carlier, who are assigned to a trading post in a remote part of the African Jungle. There they take part in ivory trading, hoping to financially benefit the company as well as themselves. With no specific tasks or important things to be done, they both become increasingly isolated and demoralized as the time goes by. At one point in the story, the native Makola, serving as Kayerts's and Carlier's bookkeeper, initiates an exchange of slaves for ivory. Initially Kayerts and Carlier are stunned and scandalized by the idea, yet eventually they accept the deal and aid Makola for his huge profit. Both men are continuously plagued by diseases and grow very weak physically towards the end of the story. Finally, a seemingly trivial matter - sugar - sparks an irrational, uncontrolled and violent conflict between them, and ends tragically as Kayerts accidentally shoots and kills Carlier. At the end of the story, just when the company steamboat approaches the station two months later than it should have, Kayerts hangs himself out of desperation.

The Duel by Joseph Conrad is Conrad's brilliantly ironic tale about two officers in Napoleon's Grand Army who, under a futile pretext, fought an on-going series of duels throughout the Napoleonic Wars. Over decades, on every occasion they chanced to meet, they fought. Both satiric and deeply sad, this masterful tale treats both the futility of war and the absurdity of false honor, war's necessary accessory.

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 05/01/2017

Out of the level blue of a shallow sea Carimata raises a lofty barrenness of grey and yellow tints, the drab eminence of its arid heights. Separated by a narrow strip of water, Suroeton, to the west, shows a curved and ridged outline resembling the backbone of a stooping giant. And to the eastward a troop of insignificant islets stand effaced, indistinct, with vague features that seem to melt into the gathering shadows. The night following from the eastward the retreat of the setting sun advanced slowly, swallowing the land and the sea; the land broken, tormented and abrupt; the sea smooth and inviting with its easy polish of continuous surface to wanderings facile and endless.There was no wind, and a small brig that had lain all the afternoon a few miles to the northward and westward of Carimata had hardly altered its position half a mile during all these hours. The calm was absolute, a dead, flat calm, the stillness of a dead sea and of a dead atmosphere. As far as the eye could reach there was nothing but an impressive immobility. Nothing moved on earth, on the waters, and above them in the unbroken lustre of the sky. On the unruffled surface of the straits the brig floated tranquil and upright as if bolted solidly, keel to keel, with its own image reflected in the unframed and immense mirror of the sea. To the south and east the double islands watched silently the double ship that seemed fixed amongst them forever, a hopeless captive of the calm, a helpless prisoner of the shallow sea.Since midday, when the light and capricious airs of these seas had abandoned the little brig to its lingering fate, her head had swung slowly to the westward and the end of her slender and polished jib-boom, projecting boldly beyond the graceful curve of the bow, pointed at the setting sun, like a spear poised high in the hand of an enemy. Right aft by the wheel the Malay quartermaster stood with his bare, brown feet firmly planted on the wheel-grating, and holding the spokes at right angles, in a solid grasp, as though the ship had been running before a gale. He stood there perfectly motionless, as if petrified but ready to tend the helm as soon as fate would permit the brig to gather way through the oily sea.The only other human being then visible on the brig's deck was the person in charge: a white man of low stature, thick-set, with shaven cheeks, a grizzled moustache, and a face tinted a scarlet hue by the burning suns and by the sharp salt breezes of the seas. He had thrown off his light jacket, and clad only in white trousers and a thin cotton singlet, with his stout arms crossed on his breast-upon which they showed like two thick lumps of raw flesh-he prowled about from side to side of the half-poop. On his bare feet he wore a pair of straw sandals, and his head was protected by an enormous pith hat-once white but now very dirty-which gave to the whole man the aspect of a phenomenal and animated mushroom. At times he would interrupt his uneasy shuffle athwart the break of the poop, and stand motionless with a vague gaze fixed on the image of the brig in the calm water. He could also see down there his own head and shoulders leaning out over the rail and he would stand long, as if interested by his own features, and mutter vague curses on the calm which lay upon the ship like an immovable burden, immense and burning.At last, he sighed profoundly, nerved himself for a great effort, and making a start away from the rail managed to drag his slippers as far as the binnacle. There he stopped again, exhausted and bored. From under the lifted glass panes of the cabin skylight near by came the feeble chirp of a canary, which appeared to give him some satisfaction. He listened, smiled faintly muttered "e;Dicky, poor Dick-"e; and fell back into the immense silence of the world. His eyes closed, his head hung low over the hot brass of the binnacle top. Suddenly he stood up with a jerk and said sharply in a hoarse voice:"e;You've been sleeping-you. Shift the helm. She has got stern way on her."e;

The Nellie, a cruising yawl, swung to her anchor without a flutter of the sails, and was at rest. The flood had made, the wind was nearly calm, and being bound down the river, the only thing for it was to come to and wait for the turn of the tide.The sea-reach of the Thames stretched before us like the beginning of an interminable waterway. In the offing the sea and the sky were welded together without a joint, and in the luminous space the tanned sails of the barges drifting up with the tide seemed to stand still in red clusters of canvas sharply peaked, with gleams of varnished sprits. A haze rested on the low shores that ran out to sea in vanishing flatness. The air was dark above Gravesend, and farther back still seemed condensed into a mournful gloom, brooding motionless over the biggest, and the greatest, town on earth.The Director of Companies was our captain and our host. We four affectionately watched his back as he stood in the bows looking to seaward. On the whole river there was nothing that looked half so nautical. He resembled a pilot, which to a seaman is trustworthiness personified. It was difficult to realize his work was not out there in the luminous estuary, but behind him, within the brooding gloom.Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns-and even convictions. The Lawyer-the best of old fellows-had, because of his many years and many virtues, the only cushion on deck, and was lying on the only rug. The Accountant had brought out already a box of dominoes, and was toying architecturally with the bones. Marlow sat cross-legged right aft, leaning against the mizzen-mast. He had sunken cheeks, a yellow complexion, a straight back, an ascetic aspect, and, with his arms dropped, the palms of hands outwards, resembled an idol. The Director, satisfied the anchor had good hold, made his way aft and sat down amongst us. We exchanged a few words lazily. Afterwards there was silence on board the yacht. For some reason or other we did not begin that game of dominoes. We felt meditative, and fit for nothing but placid staring. The day was ending in a serenity of still and exquisite brilliance. The water shone pacifically; the sky, without a speck, was a benign immensity of unstained light; the very mist on the Essex marshes was like a gauzy and radiant fabric, hung from the wooded rises inland, and draping the low shores in diaphanous folds. Only the gloom to the west, brooding over the upper reaches, became more somber every minute, as if angered by the approach of the sun.

The Lingard Trilogy

The Lingard Trilogy

Author: Joseph Conrad, Professor Robert, FEA FRSA Hampson, Andrew Purssell Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/09/2016

Almayer's Folly was Conrad's outstanding debut novel: as well as exploring the culture of a part of the world previously unknown to English fiction, it showed immense sophistication in its handling of narrative, time-shifts and point of view. Hailed as `a writer of genius' by contemporary reviewers, Conrad returned to the same riverine settlement in Borneo in his second novel, An Outcast of the Islands. Set some 15 years earlier, this prequel to Almayer's Folly tells how Lingard lost his monopoly of trade in Sambir, and follows the dangerous rivalry of his proteges Willems and Almayer. In The Rescue, the narrative moves even further back in time and shows the young, idealistic Lingard torn between his loyalties to his Sulawesi allies and his unexpected attraction to Edith Travers, with explosive consequences. Throughout this sequence of novels, the fascinating figure of Captain Lingard comes steadily into the foreground.

Take a Cruise Deep into the Congo, Where Slavery Was Born...Heart of Darkness (1899) is a novella by Polish-British novelist Joseph Conrad, about a voyage up the Congo River into the Congo Free State, in the heart of Africa, by the story's narrator Marlow. Marlow tells his story to friends aboard a boat anchored on the River Thames, London, England. This setting provides the frame for Marlow's story of his obsession with the ivory trader Kurtz, which enables Conrad to create a parallel between London and Africa as places of darkness. Central to Conrad's work is the idea that there is little difference between so-called civilised people and those described as savages; Heart of Darkness raises important questions about imperialism and racism.

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 17/02/2016

When a black sailor with tuberculosis boards the Narcissus, the shadow of death falls across the ship and the lingering gloom brings out both the best and the worst in the crew. The harsh endurance test of survival at sea, magnified by the dying sailor's condition, sends the crewmen through an emotional gamut, ranging from pity and selfless compassion to fear, resentment, and a profound hatred that boils perilously close to mutiny.In this 1897 novel, a compelling examination of human character under conditions of extreme danger and stress, Joseph Conrad considers some of his customary preoccupations. His masterful narrative technique captures every nuance of atmospheric tension as it explores issues related to moral dilemmas, isolation, and the psychology of inner compulsions. Conrad drew upon his two decades of experience in the British merchant marine for the vital, memorable characterizations and realistic depictions of seafaring life in this and many of his other works.

Nostromo, a Tale of the Seaboard

Nostromo, a Tale of the Seaboard

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 27/12/2015

"e;Nostromo, A Tale of the Seaboard"e; is set in the South American country of Costaguana, and more specifically in that country's Occidental Province and its port city of Sulaco. Though Costaguana is a fictional nation, its geography as described in the book resembles real-life Colombia. Costaguana has a long history of tyranny, revolution and warfare, but has recently experienced a period of stability under the dictator Ribiera. Charles Gould is a native Costaguanero of eng descent who owns an important silver mining concession near the key port of Sulaco. He is tired of the political instability in Costaguana and its concomitant corruption, and uses his wealth to support Ribiera's government, which he believes will finally bring stability to the country after years of misrule and tyranny by self-serving dictators. Instead, Gould's refurbished silver mine and the wealth it has generated inspires a new round of revolutions and self-proclaimed warlords, plunging Costaguana into chaos. Among others, the forces of the revolutionary General Montero invades Sulaco after securing the inland capital; Gould, adamant that his silver should not become spoil for his enemies, orders Nostromo, the trusted "e;capataz de los cargadores"e; (head longshoreman) of Sulaco, to take it offshore so it can be sold into international markets. Nostromo is an Italian expatriate who has risen to his position through his bravery and daring exploits. Nostromo is a commanding figure in Sulaco, respected by the wealthy Europeans and seemingly limitless in his abilities to command power among the local population. He is, however, never admitted to become a part of upper-class society, but is instead viewed by the rich as their useful tool. He is believed by Charles Gould and his own employers to be incorruptible, and it is for this reason that Nostromo is entrusted with removing the silver from Sulaco to keep it from the revolutionaries. Accompanied by the young journalist Martin Decoud, Nostromo sets off to smuggle the silver out of Sulaco. However, the lighter on which the silver is being transported is struck at night in the waters off Sulaco by a transport carrying the invading revolutionary forces under the command of Colonel Sotillo. Nostromo and Decoud manage to save the silver by transporting it to a smaller lifeboat. Decoud and the silver are deposited on the deserted island of Great Isabel in the expansive bay off Sulaco, while Nostromo manages to swim back to shore. Back in Sulcao, Nostromo's power and fame continues to grow as he daringly rides over the mountains to summon the army which ultimately saves Sulaco's powerful leaders from the revolutionaries and ushers in the independent state of Sulaco. In the meantime, left alone on the deserted island, Decoud eventually loses his mind. He takes the small lifeboat out to sea and there shoots himself, after first weighing his body down with some of the silver ingots so that he would sink into the sea. His exploits during the revolution do not bring Nostromo the fame he had hoped for, and he feels slighted and used. Feeling that he has risked his life for nothing, he is consumed by resentment, which leads to his corruption and ultimate destruction, for he has kept secret the true fate of the silver after all others believed it lost at sea. He finds himself becoming a slave of the silver and its secret, even as he slowly recovers it ingot by ingot during nighttime trips to Great Isabel. The fate of Decoud is a mystery to Nostromo, which combined with the fact of the missing silver ingots only adds to his paranoia. Eventually a lighthouse is constructed on the Great Isabel threatening Nostromo's ability to recover the treasure in secret, but the ever resourceful Nostromo manages to have a close acquaintance, the widower Giorgio Viola, named as its keeper. Nostromo is in love with Giorgio's younger daughter, but ultimately becomes engaged to his elder daughter Linda. One night, in attempting to recover more of the silver for himself, Nostromo is shot and killed, mistaken for a trespasser by old Giorgio. (Excerpt from Wikipedia)

A few days later, they are picked up by a British ship. However, the Patna and its passengers are later also saved, and the reprehensible actions of the crew are exposed. The other participants evade the judicial court of inquiry, leaving Jim to the court alone. The court strips him of his navigation command certificate for his dereliction of duty. Jim is angry with himself, both for his moment of weakness, and for missing an opportunity to be a 'hero'.

Jim tries to remain incognito, but whenever the shameful conduct of the Patna incident catches up with him, he abandons his place and moves further east.

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 01/10/2015

"e;So foul a sky clears not without a storm."e; -SHAKESPEARE"e;Nostromo"e; is the most anxiously meditated of the longer novels which belong to the period following upon the publication of the "e;Typhoon"e; volume of short stories.I don't mean to say that I became then conscious of any im-pending change in my mentality and in my attitude towards the tasks of my writing life. And perhaps there was never any change, except in that mysterious, extraneous thing which has nothing to do with the theories of art; a subtle change in the nature of the inspiration; a phenomenon for which I can not in any way be held responsible. What, however, did cause me some concern was that after finishing the last story of the "e;Typhoon"e; volume it seemed somehow that there was nothing more in the world to write about.This so strangely negative but disturbing mood lasted some lit-tle time; and then, as with many of my longer stories, the first hint for "e;Nostromo"e; came to me in the shape of a vagrant anecdote completely destitute of valuable details.As a matter of fact in 1875 or '6, when very young, in the West Indies or rather in the Gulf of Mexico, for my contacts with land were short, few, and fleeting, I heard the story of some man who was supposed to have stolen single-handed a whole lighter-full of silver, somewhere on the Tierra Firme seaboard during the trou-bles of a revolution.

Nostromo

Nostromo

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: eBook Release Date: 01/10/2015

Sulaco is an ancient town, which can be proved by extremely beautiful orange grove in the town. During the reign of Spain and for many years thereafter, the commercial importance of Sulaco is nothing more than a coastal trading port with a considerable volume of cattle leather and indigo dye trading. Those ocean sailing ships of the European conquerors were still moored quietly because of the lack of strong sea winds that could drive the ship. Look at those trendy and fast sailing ships, even though they wobble their sails, but are still blocked by the huge and calm bay outside Sulaco. There's no lack of ports difficult for berth in the world. Some are because of the insidious reefs on the shore and the rest are because of storm on the shore. Sulaco is different. It's like a giant semicircle temple without a roof, which is sacred and inviolable. The temple faces the sea and the walls of the temple are covered with mountains of white clouds. We can imagine that merchant ships, who want to do business in Sulaco, will be frightened back by the graveness of the bay after entering into the deep Bay of Placido.

The Selected Letters of Joseph Conrad

The Selected Letters of Joseph Conrad

Author: Joseph Conrad Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/09/2015

Since the publication of the Cambridge edition of The Collected Letters of Joseph Conrad, the numerous letters in the nine volumes, many of them published for the first time and many more taken from hard-to-find books and journals, have had a profound influence on writing about Conrad. This selection makes the highlights available in one volume. The letters have been re-edited with shorter footnotes and an emphasis on the latest scholarship. Letters originally written in French or Polish appear only in revised English translations. Among the topics that stand out are Conrad's memories of growing up in Poland and Ukraine, his ideas about fiction, often expressed in precise but sympathetic comments on the work of his friends, the anxieties of war and revolution, his struggle to keep his integrity as a writer, and his lives as a sailor and a family man.
