Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. The Shadow Line tells a story of a young sea captain’s first command which brings with it a succession of crises: sea is becalmed, the crew laid low by fewer, and his deranged first mate is convinced that the ship is haunted by the malignant spirit of a previous captain. The Nature of Crime is Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford’s collaborative work, a study of human psychology. The feelings of the protagonist, as life is crumbles around him, are expressed profoundly by the two authors. Heart of Darkness remains an indisputably classic text and arguably Conrad’s finest work. Taking place mostly in Africa, it tells the story of Europeans going to the Congo in search of goods to bring back, mostly ivory.

Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. These works are unique in Conrad’s oeuvre in being openly autobiographical — but in scope and literary form, they differ widely. In The Mirror of the Sea Conrad explores his vast knowledge of the sea in an era when the sailing ship gave way, after thousands of years, to steam. A Personal Record is Conrad’s account of himself, his cultural background, and the central motives in his life as a seaman and a writer separated from the country where he was born.

An Outcast of the Islands, Conrad Joseph
The Complete Works of, Т8 2018, ISBN: 978-5-521-07630-7
635руб Купить
Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. An Outcast of the Islands is Conrad’s second novel, but in its theme, in its impressionistic use of scenery, and in the enormous richness and power of the writing, it predicts Conrad’s position as a literary figure of the highest rank. Peter Willems, a clerk in Macassar, granted a «second chance» at a remote river trading post, falls ever more hopelessly into traps set by himself and others. A parable of human frailty, with love and death the major players, this is a story of a man unable to understand others and fated never to possess his own soul.

Jane Austen is one of the most enduring and skilled English novelists. Early Works remained unpublished during her lifetime even though the last one was completed before she was 17. With her wit, social perception and unerring ability to create some of literature’s most charismatic and believable heroines, Jane Austen mesmerizes her readers as much today as she did when her famous novels were first published.
