Dust jacket notes: Joseph Conrad is regarded as one of the twentieth century's most insightful writers on the human condition. His tales of characters compelled by circumstance to make difficult moral choices in a world seemingly bereft of a moral center are among the most provocative in modern literature. Although Conrad set his stories in a wide variety of locales, ranging from the Pacific Ocean to the South Sea Islands and the Congo, their true terrain is an inner landscape comprised of his characters' hearts and minds. This volume collects all of the short stories Conrad completed in his lifetime, including "The Secret Sharer," "The Brute," "Youth: A Narrative," and "Heart of Darkness," his literary masterpiece and an acknowledged pillar of modern literary fiction.
