Biographie de l'auteur

Joseph Conrad (born; Berdichev, Imperial Russia, 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924, Bishopsbourne, Kent, England) was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England. He was granted British nationality in 1886, but always considered himself a Pole. Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a marked accent). He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature. Early life Joseph Conrad was born on 3 December 1857 in Berdichev, in Podolia, a part of modern Ukraine that had belonged to the Kingdom of Poland before the 1793 Second Partition of Poland. He was the only child of Apollo Korzeniowski and his wife Ewa Bobrowska. The father was a writer, translator, political activist and would-be revolutionary. Conrad, who would actually be known to his family as "Konrad" rather than "Józef", was christened Józef Teodor Konrad after his maternal grandfather Józef, his paternal grandfather Teodor, and the heroes (both named "Konrad") of two poems by Adam Mickiewicz, Dziady and Konrad Wallenrod. Though the vast majority of the area's inhabitants were Ukrainians, the land was almost completely owned by the Polish szlachta (nobility) that Conrad's parents belonged to. Polish literature, particularly patriotic literature, was held in high esteem by the area's Polish population. Because of the father's attempts at farming and his political activism, the family moved repeatedly. In May 1861 they moved to Warsaw, where Apollo joined the resistance against the Russian Empire. This led to his imprisonment in Pavilion X (Ten) of the Warsaw Citadel. Conrad would write: " In the courtyard of this Citadel – characteristically for our nation – my childhood memories begin." On 9 May 1862 Apollo and his family were exiled to Vologda, 500 kilometres north of Moscow and known for its bad climate. In January 1863 Apollo's sentence was commuted, and the family was sent to Chernihiv in northeast Ukraine, where conditions were much better. However, on 18 April 1865 Ewa died of tuberculosis.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Read it! 14 novembre 2013

This is an excellent book. I had no idea what I was getting into when I bought this on kindle, but after I started reading it I didn't want to stop. Sure it's written back in the 1800's and their writing style was different and this makes it more challeninging to read, but the story is amazing and you can learn a lot from this book and you can even relate it to things that are happening in our world today.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Well, That Was Depressing 6 juillet 2013

My first reaction to this book was one of intense dislike. I was not particularly impressed with the storyline or the characters, and I found the book overall to be a depressing read. While rereading it (for English class, not fun), I noticed some of the beauty and power of the use of the English language. The language is complex and beautiful and perfectly expresses the (depressing) themes of the book as well as tying the whole book together. I now like the book more than I did, but I still probably wouldn't recommend it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Heart of darkness: what was Kurtz actually saying? 29 juin 2013
Par Robert W Carlsmith - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Apocalypse now became available for streaming on Netflix so I thought I'd read this book as the Movie was supposedly inspired by the book. I had raced through heart of darkness years ago in connection with some university course or another and I thought I would actually try and read it properly. I enjoyed reading it, it was a bit of a puzzle to try to figure out what the book was about and why it was such an important piece of literature. At one point I wondered if the character Kurtz was actually a MacGuffin. Part of the appeal of the book is that it is so short you can take your time going through it and trying to pick up all of the meaning. It's a book I'll be thinking about from time to time for many years.

A first person narrative of a struggling steamboat sailor, struggling with his soul, struggling with his morals, struggling with his heart. A beautiful audible book performance. I highly recommend!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not A Great Book, But An Important Topic 15 mars 2013
Par JLGEEE - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Conrad wrote this book to expose the appalling conditions in what was then the Belgian Congo. With the full support of the King of Belgium, who personally received the profits, European overseers horribly exploited the native population in the course of ravishing the country's vast natural resources. A truly ugly story reveals itself in this tale. Conrad's writing is ponderous and often dull, but it is the story itself that makes this difficult reading.
