Joseph Conrad is one of the writers whose works read out not only mere mortals, but also future fellow writers — several generations of writers from J. London and E. Hemingway to W. Faulkner and Graham Greene learned from him the art of composition, the lapidary capacity of descriptions, expressive music phrases. The action of many works of Conrad takes place on land, but the writer's talent is fully revealed in books that are devoted to the sea.

About the Author

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) grew up amid political unrest in Russian-occupied Poland. After twenty years at sea with the French and British merchant navies, he settled in England in 1894. Over the next three decades he revolutionized the English novel with books such as Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, and especially Heart of Darkness, his best-known and most influential work.
