Book Description

First Published in 1967 The Sea Years of Joseph Conrad is a major biography, a fruit of Jerry Allen’s ten years of extensive research making use of records located in fifteen counties, the majority never before published. The author has discovered and described in detail many of the real people and events developed by Conrad in his fiction. These includes his contact with the 1876 revolution in Columbia; the sensational Jeddah incident of 1880; the Congo episode behind Heart of Darkness; the American with whom Conrad fought a duel in Marseilles etc. Illustrated with many rare and previously unpublished photographs this book offers a fascinating narrative for the general reader and extensive material for the scholar.
