Jugend. Der geheime Teilhaber. by Joseph Conrad( )

''Wir sind doch nicht in einer Abenteuergeschichte für Jungen', widersprach ich. Sein spöttisches Flüstern machte mich betroffen. 'Wahrhaftig nicht!'' Dieser Band vereint zwei der unbestrittenen Meistererzählungen von Joseph Conrad. Beide Male geraten die Protagonisten durch unglaubliche Ereignisse in höchste Gefahr und begegnen dabei sich selbst. Ihre Schiffe sind auf See zum Halten gekommen, doch damit beginnt erst eine ganz andere Reise, die Reise des jugendlichen Herzens zu seinen Abgründen und die Entdeckung seiner eigenen Stärke. Es sind Initiationsgeschichten von farbigem Realismus und symbolischer Wahrheit, die hier in glänzenden Übersetzungen neu präsentiert werden. Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), eigentlich Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, war polnischer Abkunft, diente bei der französischen, dann bei der englischen Handelsmarine, wurde Kapitän und befuhr bis 1894 die Meere Südamerikas und des Fernen Ostens. Dort spielen viele seiner Romane und Erzählungen, die gleichermassen durch ihre genaue Beobachtungsgabe und ihre psychologische Meisterschaft bestechen
