Victory, don t forget, has come out of my innermost self. Victory was the last of Conrad s novels to be set in the Malay Archipelago. Sub-titled An Island Tale , it tells the story of Axel Heyst who, damaged by his dead father s nihilistic philosophy, has retreated from the world of commerce and colonial exploration to live alone on the island of Samburan. But Heyst s solitary existence ends when he rescues an English girl from her rapacious patron and takes her off to his retreat. She in turn recalls him to love and life, until the world breaks in on them once more with tragic consequences. In this love story Conrad created two of his psychologically most complex and compelling characters in a narrative of great erotic power. This new edition uses the English first edition text and has a new chronology and bibliography.

About the Author

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) was born to Polish parents in Berdychiv (now Ukraine). His early readings in marine literature inspired him to be a sailor. Consequently, he joined the British Merchant Navy in his early twenties and then chose to live as a British citizen in England. His literary career started in his late thirties when he published his first novel Almayer’s Folly in 1895. He is viewed as a great prose stylist who combined, when necessary, the elements of his foreignness, his sailing experiences and his humanistic views to create immortal literary masterpieces. Conrad is regarded as one of the finest writers in English language.
