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 Polish-British writer whose narrative style and anti-heroic characters have placed him as a key figure in the early 20th-century fiction. Conrad is known for his rich prose and his compelling tales of adventure and morality, often set amidst the perils of the high seas or in exotic colonial territories. His writings reflect his own experiences in the British merchant marines and the Royal Navy, and his masterful command of the English language is all the more remarkable considering it was his third language after Polish and French. His body of work spans novels, novellas, and short stories, many of which are anchored in the complexities of the human psyche and the ambiguous moral landscape of modernity. Notably, his novel 'Heart of Darkness' (1899) has been widely studied for its profound psychological insights and its critique of imperialism. Other significant works include 'Lord Jim' (1900), 'The Secret Agent' (1907), and 'Under Western Eyes' (1911). His oeuvre was compiled posthumously in 'The Complete Works of Joseph Conrad'. Conrad's literary style, characterized by its narrative sophistication and depth of thematic exploration, has earned him a place as a literary great and continues to influence writers and readers alike. He passed away on August 3, 1924, leaving behind a legacy that has secured him a lasting place in the annals of English literature.
