The rover by Joseph Conrad( Book )

362 editions published between 1922 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 2,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this novel Mr. Conrad has the Mediterranean, as seen from the French south coast, not for a stage, but for a background, in the depth of which the presence of the English blockading fleet is rather felt than seen throughout the course of events which happen on land in a lonely farm house. The narrative, intimate in character, deals with the crisis in the lives of two women and some men - the Rover being the central figure - and ends at sea in an episode in which the shapes of the blockading ships and the person of Lord Nelson himself are evoked for a moment. The tale, though in no sense historical, attempts to reflect in part at least the spirit of the period 1802-4, with references to an earlier time, after the evacuation of Toulon, when during the savage excesses of the Republican reaction the Heiress of Escampobar, when still almost a child, passed through experiences which had unsettled her mind.--Dust jacket

Tales of unrest by Joseph Conrad( Book )

186 editions published between 1898 and 2016 in English and German and held by 1,896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The five stories brought together in Tales of Unrest (1898) mark a turning point in the writer's career. Conrad's first short story collection evidences a writer firmly in control of his new craft staking a claim to diverse cultural and fictional territories. The introduction situates the writing of these stories in Conrad's career and discusses their sources and contemporary reception. The explanatory notes identify literary and historical references and real-life places, and indicate influences. Two maps and six illustrations enrich the explanatory matter. The essay on the text lays out the history of the work's composition and publication, details interventions by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors, and explains editorial policy. This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's stories and his preface to the collection in forms more authoritative than any so far printed"--

The mirror of the sea by Joseph Conrad( Book )

110 editions published between 1906 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1857 in Poland, Joseph Conrad became a British citizen just before he turned 30. In the intervening years he lost both parents, becoming an orphan at 11, being thereafter raised by an uncle, who let the boy go to Marseille at age 16, where he began to work on merchant ships - which at times included stints of gun running and the intrigue of political conspiracy. At age 36 his life turned from one of ships to one of literary pursuit. Conrad brought to English literature both a fresh layer of style and a deeper examination of the human psyche in a wealth of works. He wrote many novels, which are correctly regarded today as some of the finest in English literature. Among their canon are Lord Jim, Nostromo, The Shadow Line, and of course Heart Of Darkness
