Joseph Conrad The Nigger of the Narcissus and The Secret Sharer


Contained within this volume are two of Joseph Conrad's great tales of the sea, «The Nigger of the 'Narcissus'» and «The Secret Sharer.» Drawing from his own experiences as a seaman, Conrad's writing is rich with the details of a life lived at sea. In «The Nigger of the 'Narcissus'» a ship's crew struggles with morale as a black member of the crew lay dying. In the shorter work «The Secret Sharer» a captain on his night watch discovers an officer that has come aboard has been accused of a murder. In both works through the context of a voyage at sea Conrad masterfully explores the psychological and moral issues that are at the heart of mankind.

Conrad J. The Shadow Line = Теневая черта: повесть на английском языке


«The Shadow Line — a short novel based at sea — was first published in 1916. It depicts the development of a young man upon taking a captaincy in the Orient, with the shadow line of the title representing the threshold of this development. Conrad also extensively uses irony by comparison in the work, with characters such as Captain Giles and the ship's «factotum» Ransome used to emphasise strengths and weaknesses of the protagonist.

Conrad J. The Nature of a Crime

Conrad Joseph Novels 1. Volume 11


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 The Shadow Line


A shining example of Conrad's later literary ability, «The Shadow-Line» is his 1915 autobiographical novella of a young man in his first command as a sea captain. A series of crises prove incredibly difficult for his new authority, for the sea is curiously becalmed and the crew is weakened by feverish malaria. When the first mate's fear convinces many that the ship is haunted and cursed by the malevolent spirit of the previous captain, the young man must cope with their superstition as well as the conspicuous absence of much-needed medicine. A suspenseful sea story of a young man in a defining moment of his life, when the indistinct line separating an inexperienced boy from a mature man becomes perfectly clear, «The Shadow-Line» brims with intense existence, straining responsibility, and threatened principles in a probing study of masculinity.

Joseph Conrad The Secret Sharer and Other Stories


All of author Joseph Conrad's works have an air of loneliness and isolation within the plot. This is now thought to be reflective of the author's life as a Polish immigrant living and writing at the height of the British Empire. His prose strikes a chord that resonates deep within the reader, leaving a feeling of immense despondency. Yet with his deep affinity for the melancholy, Conrad was also a highly skilled prose writer. His words allow the reader to become lost in whatever world Conrad created. He wrote at the turn of Romanticism and Modernism, which created a very unique form of writing. Conrad drew inspiration from the Impressionistic painting style; he explored just enough of the light to let the darkness make itself apparent. This can be seen within the works contained in «The Secret Sharer and Other Stories.» «The Secret Sharer» is a maritime story about a captain who takes a murderer under his wing while out at sea. Conrad drew from his own experiences as a long-time sea captain to make the story as real and vivid as possible. «Youth: A Narrative» is an autobiographical short story about a young sailor whose ship sinks while on a voyage to Thailand. «Typhoon» is one of Conrad's novels which also depicts the sea life. The main character, Captain MacWhirr, decides to sail his vessel through a typhoon in the South Pacific, much to the protest of his ship. Yet his bold action earns him the admiration of the rest of his crew. Readers will enjoy the reality of these works, as well as the adventure and drama of the tales.

Joseph Conrad Heart of Darkness and A Personal Record (Unabridged)


This audiobook comprises two works: Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and his autobiographical A Personal Record. The opening of Heart of Darkness finds Charles Marlow in fading light on the Thames Estuary, as he and his companions relax on deck, waiting for the turn of the tide. He tells of the time he turned 'freshwater sailor' on the River Congo, of his perilous journey upriver in a little steamboat with a band of white colonialists and a group of cannibals that takes him closer to the coveted ivory, closer to Kurtz the rogue agent, closer to certain unspeakable rites and the heart of darkness. Serialised in three parts in 1899, Heart of Darkness was first published in 1902. A Personal Record is a 'fragment of biography', an autobiographical work by Joseph Conrad, published in 1912. It has also been published under the title Some Reminiscences. It is a masterpiece of atmospheric writing and the main contemporary source to detail his early life. Conrad, Polish by birth, who goes on to become one of the greatest novelists of the English language, describes his childhood and adolescence, discusses his forebears, one of whom fought on the side of Napoleon and ate a Lithuanian dog, the exile of his parents, the death of his mother and his relationship with Uncle Tadeusz. Thereafter Conrad beautifully interweaves the tales of why he went to sea and how he came to be a writer. Its digressive structure is precisely what makes it a magical and timeless work about exile, destiny and art.
