From the rain forests of Almayer s Folly to the Mediterranean coast of The Rover, Conrad s first and final completed novels are played out against contrasting backgrounds. Almayer, in Borneo, is hopelessly obsessed by his deluded dreams for himself and his daughter, which take no account of her falling in love with a handsome Balinese prince. Peyrol, the rover, returns to a France at war and finds the actions of those around him still overborne by memories of revolutionary terror. For the orphaned Lieutenant Real and Arlette love offers release but their romance seems doomed by the demands of his naval duties. Conrad s acute understanding of human psychology and its application across racial and ideological divides is the life-force of both stories.

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.
