9780141397009: The Penguin Classics Secret Sharer and Other Stories

A wonderful volume of Conrad's short fiction, reissued alongside the new film The Secret Sharer. This volume of Conrad's short works explores a vast array of human experience in a variety of settings across the globe, from the sea to the colonial world, from the Far East and Africa to Europe. 'The Nigger of the "Narcissus"' shows life on the 'small planet' of a ship threatened by storms and anarchy, while 'Youth' and 'The Secret Sharer' portray men at sea confronting turning points in their lives. 'The Informer' reveals anarchy and activism in London, 'Il Conde' depicts a secret double life in Naples and 'The Duel' dramatizes conflicts and obsession in Napoleon's army. All show Conrad to be a continuously experimental writer, ranging across time and place and constantly reinventing the nature of storytelling. This volume includes: - The Nigger of the 'Narcissus' - Youth, A Narrative - The Secret Sharer - The Lagoon - An Outpost of Progress - The Idiots - The Informer - Il Conde - The Duel Joseph Conrad was born in the Ukraine in 1857 and grew up under Tsarist autocracy.
