About the Author

About The Author
Polish-British author Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) settled in England and gained citizenship in 1886. Although he is considered one of the greatest English-language authors of his time, Conrad did not speak English fluently until he was in his twenties.
He joined the British merchant marine and was granted British nationality. His prose was masterful. He wrote stories and novels, many based on his nautical experience, depicting trials of the human spirit.
Conrad's work is considered early modernist with elements of 19th-century realism. His narrative style has influenced many authors including F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, André Malraux, George Orwell, Graham Greene, Gabriel García Márquez, John le Carré, V. S. Naipaul, and Salman Rushdie. Many films have been adapted from, or inspired by, Conrad's works.
Conrad drew on his native Poland's national experiences and his experiences in the French and British merchant navies, to create novels that reflect aspects of a European-dominated world-including imperialism and colonialism
