Joseph Conrad, (1857-1924), was an 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.
