About the eBook

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England. Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties. He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature.

About the Author

Joseph Conrad, born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski on December 3, 1857, in Berdychiv, Ukraine, then part of the Russian Empire, was a seminal Polish-British writer whose narrative style and anti-heroic characters have put him in the first rank of novelists. Fluent in several languages, Conrad did not begin to learn English until he was in his twenties, yet remarkably, he became one of the greatest English novelists, best known for works such as 'Heart of Darkness' (1899), 'Lord Jim' (1900), and 'Nostromo' (1904). His writing is marked by a deep-felt concern with moral conflicts, the complexities of social justice, and the psychological underpinnings of human behavior, as he explored the inner workings of humanity against the backdrop of the sea and exotic locales, common settings due to his career in the French and British merchant navies. Conrad's 'The Complete Novels' offer readers a profound look at the human condition and the narratives still resonate with audiences today for their psychological depth and insight into imperialism and colonialism. Known as a master prose stylist, his work is both modern and timeless. As Virginia Woolf, a fellow titan of literature observed, Conrad had the ability 'to make the reader see,' an invaluable quality that has secured his literary legacy. Conrad died on August 3, 1924, solidifying his place in the canon of English literature.
