Джозеф Конрад Almayer's Folly


The first novel of Conrad's impressive list of works, «Almayer's Folly» revolves around the Dutch trader Kaspar Almayer and his life in the Borneo jungles in the late 19th century. Spurred by his desire for riches, he marries the adopted Malayan daughter of Captain Lingard, an affluent man who then requires Almayer to run his trading post in Sambir, in the Borneo jungles. While his chances of inheriting Lingard's wealth have increased, Almayer is now trapped in a loveless marriage. This soon seems a useless commitment, however, for Lingard begins losing his fortune in a futile treasure hunt. Between his failing trading endeavors and the resentful actions of his wife, the one bright aspect of Almayer's life is his daughter Nina, who comes to create a strong conflict of interests for her father. When a Malay prince named Dain arrives in Sambir, Almayer must decide if he cares for money and self-recovery more than his aspirations for his only child. A well-crafted story full of realistic colonialism, harrowing treachery, and maddening isolation, Conrad's novel captures the tragic ambiance unique to the jungles of Borneo just as completely as the psychological struggle of a father full of greed.

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.

Конрад Джозеф An Outcast of the Islands = Изгнанник. Т. 1: на англ.яз


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.

Джозеф Конрад A Personal Record (Unabridged)


A Personal Record is a «fragment of biography», an autobiographical work by Joseph Conrad, published in 1912. It is also 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 his Uncle Tadeusz. He takes us to the Alps with his tutor, to Marseilles with the pilots, to the freezing fog-bound docks of Rouen with his battered manuscript of Almayer's Folly. But Conrad has an overriding object: this memoir 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. It is read by Greg Wagland.

Джозеф Конрад Heart of Darkness


In Heart of Darkness, Polish-British author Joseph Conrad deploys atmosphere, ambiguity and nuance to spin a languid tale of intrigue and madness in late 19th-century Colonial Africa. The story's narrator, Marlow, tells of a trip up the Congo River to rescue a legendary ivory trader, Kurtz, from a mysterious illness. Considered Conrad's masterpiece, and one of the greatest novels of the 20th century (it was written and serialized in 1899 but not published in book form until 1902), others have condemned the dehumanizing depictions of Africans as racist and outdated.

Джозеф Конрад The Duel


Joseph Conrad's novella «The Duel» regards the story of Lieutenant Gabriel Feraud, a fervent Bonapartist and obsessive duelist. Following a near fatal duel with the nephew of the mayor of Strasborg, Lieutenant Armand d'Hubert is sent to put Feraud under house arrest. This confrontation sets in motion a series of indecisive duels between the two over the course of the next several years. Conrad's «The Duel» is based upon the real life events of two French Hussar officers named Dupont and Fournier-Sarlovèze, who over the course of nineteen years fought over thirty duels. Set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic wars, the conflict between the two men is a gripping period piece in which Conrad constructs an analogy to the conflict of all men.

Джозеф Конрад 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.
