Über den Autor

Joseph Conrad, born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski on December 3, 1857, in Berdychiv, Ukraine, then part of the Russian Empire, is best known for his intricate narrative style and deep psychological insights into the human condition and the nature of imperialism. A Polish-British writer, Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in the English language, despite not speaking the language fluently until his twenties. His works often reflect his own experiences in the British merchant navy and his life as an immigrant from a colonized country. Conrad's writing is characterized by a relentless questioning of morality and truth, a theme prevalent in his collection 'Twixt Land & Sea: Tales,' which elucidates his narrative mastery through tales of the sea and personal reflection. His most famous works, including 'Heart of Darkness' (1899) and 'Lord Jim' (1900), reveal his preoccupation with the struggle between civilization and barbarism, a motif that remains resonant in the contemporary literary canon. Conrad's influence extends beyond literature; his complex characters and moral dilemmas have left an indelible mark on the 20th and 21st centuries, creating a legacy that endures in various aspects of cultural discourse. He passed away on August 3, 1924, but his works continue to be studied and celebrated for their linguistic precision, psychological depth, and philosophical insight.
