Description - Joseph Conrad by Robert Hampson

An original interpretation of Joseph Conrad's life of writing

Born in Poland in 1857, Joseph Conrad is one of the great writers of the twentieth century. This book traces Conrad's life from his childhood in a Russian penal colony, through his early manhood in Marseille and his years in the British Merchant Navy, to a career as a novelist. It describes how these experiences inspired Conrad's work, from his early Malay novels to his best-known work, Heart of Darkness. Robert Hampson discusses Conrad's important relations with other writers, including Henry James and Ford Madox Ford, as well as his late-life political engagements and his relationships with women.

Featuring new interpretations of all of Conrad's major works, this is an original interpretation of Conrad's life of writing.
