Heart of darkness ; and, the secret sharer by Joseph Conrad( Book )

6 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the civilized, enlightened Mr. Kurtz who embarks on a harrowing "night journey" into the savage heart of Africa, only to find his dark and evil soul. The Secret Sharer. The saga of a young, inexperienced skipper forced to decide the fate of a fugitive sailor who killed a man in self-defense. As he faces his first moral test the skipper discovers a terrifying truth -- and comes face to face with the secret itself. Heart Of Darkness and The Secret Sharer draw on actual events and people that Conrad met or heard about during his many far-flung travels. In portraying men whose incredible journeys on land and at sea are also symbolic voyages into their own mysterious depths, these two masterful works give credence to Conrad's acclaim as a major psychological writer

Martin Eden by Jack London( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruth est belle, riche, inaccessible. Pour la séduire, Martin Eden est prêt à tout ; Il était marin. Il sera écrivain ! Comme un fou, il se plonge dans les livres. Très vite, il apprend. Il se met à écrire, et plus rien ne l'arrête. Malgré la misère, il y croit : un jour il sera célèbre, et Ruth lui cédera. Mais en ce début de siècle, la bourgeoisie californienne n'ouvre pas ses portes aux matelots. Surtout s'ils osent avoir des prétentions intellectuelles... Au pays de la liberté, Mardin Eden va découvrir l'égoïsme et la vaniteuse stupidité des nantis. Rejeté par les siens, méprisé par ceux qu'il rêvait d'égaler, Martin est un paria. Dès lors, quel espoir, lui reste-t-il ? [Payot]
