Victory (an Island Tale) by Joseph Conrad

Book Description

Set in the islands of the Malay Archipelago, "Victory" tells the story of a disillusioned Swede, Axel Heyst, who rescues Lena, a young English musician, from the clutches of a brutish German hotel owner. Seeking refuge at Heyst s remote island retreat on Samburan, the couple is soon besieged by three villains dispatched by the enraged hotelier. The arrival on the island paradise of this trio of fiends sets off a terrifying series of events that ultimately ends in catastrophe. With "Victory," Conrad inaugurated a new style and aesthetic, writes Peter Lancelot Mallios in his Introduction. The tremendous literary sophistication to be found in "Victory" does "not" result in the exclusion of the popular reader. The text of this Modern Library Paperback Classic was set from the first British edition, published by Methuen & Co. in 1915."
