Overview

Ce roman d'aventures est la dernière oeuvre que Joseph Conrad conduisit à son terme. Peyrol, ancien forban, se retire sur le rivage méditerranéen, non loin de la rade de Toulon, dans une période troublée - l'action se déroule sous la Convention et le Consulat - où la paix à laquelle il aspire va lui être ravie par la force des circonstances. Sur la toile de fond mi-terrestre mi-maritime, se meuvent des personnages fortement individualisés, marqués par les événements de l'époque - rivalités politiques nationales, massacres de la Terreur, etc.
