Joseph Conrad was born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski on this day in 1857.
"There is nothing more enticing, disenchanting, and enslaving than the life at sea."
--from LORD JIM (1900)
Lord Jim is a classic story of one man's tragic failure and eventual redemption, told under the circumstances of high adventure at the margins of the known world which made Conrad's work so immediately popular. But it is also the book in which its author, through a brilliant adaptation of his stylistic apparatus to his obsessive moral, psychological and political concerns, laid the groundwork for the modern novel as we know it.
