康拉德有二十余年的海上生涯。在此期间,他曾航行世界各地,积累了丰富的海上生活经验。康拉德最擅长写海洋冒险小说,有“海洋小说大师”之称。 As these three specially commissioned stories amply demonstrate, Conrad is our greatest writer of the sea. His characters are tested by dramatic events 'that show in the light of day the inner worth of a man, the edge of his temper, and the fibre of his stuff; that reveal the quality of his resistance and the secret stuff of his pretences, not only to others but also to himself'.In Typhoon, Conrad's funniest story, Captain MacWhirr blunders into a hurricane that reveals the sea's treachery, violence and terror.Falk is desperate to get married, but first he must tell of his terrible experiences as sole survivor of a stricken ship that once drifted into the ice-caps of Antarctica.The Shadow-Line is a poignant and beautiful story. Written during the First World War and based on Conrad's fond evocation of his own first command, it expresses his solidarity with all who were obliged to cross in early youth the shadow-line of their war-torn generation. Includes a glossary of nautical terms.Joseph Conrad (11-12 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924) 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, although 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.  约瑟夫·康拉德,1857年12月3日生于波兰,在上流社会的家庭中度过了童年生活。后他逃到了马赛,在那里他曾先后在许多只船上做工。在一艘英国船上当水手时,他只懂6个英语单词。20年后他成为世界著名的用英文写作的作家。《吉姆爷》(1900年)和《神秘参与者》(1912年)体现了典型的康拉德笔下的人物。他们是在一个多少有些疯狂的世界上,进行着单枪匹马斗争的人们。他精通英语,擅长航海。他把他全部的爱都倾注在描写海员的书中,描写在神秘的刚果河上航行的《黑暗的心》(1902年)是他最负盛誉的小说。1924年8月3日,约瑟夫·康拉德去世,终年67岁。
