About the Book

Joseph Conrad, a Polish-born British novelist, is regarded as one of the greatest writers. He wrote stories and novels which depicted the heroism of faith before the imperatives of duty, social responsibility and honour. Conrad drew upon his experiences serving in the French and later the British Merchant Navy to create novels and short stories that reflected aspects of a worldwide experience and at the same time plumbing the depths of the human soul.
The book evaluates the mind and art of Conrad through a close examination of the relationship between the individual and the world around him. It aims at looking into Conrad's intrinsic faith in the values of fidelity and solidarity as essential moral attributes of an individual. It appreciates Conrad's greatest characteristic-the fascination of vivid expressiveness and zest, of his deeply affectionate heart, and his far-ranging subtle mind.
The book also critically analyses his novels- Lord Jim, Heart of Darkness, The Secret Sharer, The Nigger of the Narcissus, Nostromo, The Shadow Line.
