About Joseph Conrad
Joseph Conrad, (1857-1924), English author, born of
Polish parents at Berdichev, in the Ukraine, as Teodor
Jozef Konrad Korzeniowski. He passed his youth at
Cracow; Poland, where he learned French and acquired his
first interest in novels, including those of Captain Frederick
Marryat and James Fenimore Cooper in translation. At the
age of seventeen Joseph Conrad traveled to Marseille,
where he joined the French merchant marine. Four years
later, with only a slight knowledge of English picked up on
shipboard; he enlisted as an able seaman in the British
merchant marine, rising after six years to the rank of
captain. In the same year in which he received his
commission as master, 1886, became a British subject the
name of Joseph Conrad. He continued to follow the sea
until 1894, but meanwhile had begun writing, in his adopted
language, stories based on his experiences and tales he had
heard. During a period of convalescence after 1889 Joseph
Conrad devoted more time to his advocation, and his first
novel, Almayer's Folly, appeared in 1895. Thereafter
Joseph Conrad devoted himself almost entirely to writing.
Joseph Conrad's novels and short stories appeared
regularly until his death, and his reading public increased
over the years from a small group of appreciative critics to
a large number of admirers in every part of the English
speaking world. Joseph Conrad's style is lucid, imaginative,
forceful, and euphonious. The subject mater of his tales is
high adventure.
