About the Book

Joseph Conrad first released Tales of Unrest, a collection of short stories, in 1898. Four of the five tales had previously appeared in different magazines. Conrad's stories were included in this anthology for the first time. Some of Conrad's earlier writings can be found in this collection of short stories. Four of the five tales had been published before, the first in 1898. These five short stories provide a more in-depth psychological examination of the lead characters. Tales of Unrest, a collection of these five short stories, was first released in 1898, just before Conrad's first significant novel, Heart of Darkness. These diverse tales demonstrate Conrad's capacity to delve into and reveal human character. They range from the distant and strange, where the avarice of colonial adventure is damningly exposed, to an allegedly typical London household. The introduction explores the sources and current reception of the stories as well as where Conrad wrote them in his career. The book involves the story of "The Lagoon" which is the first short story I ever wrote and marks the end of my first phase. It was conceived in the same mood as "Almayer's Folly" and "An Outcast of the Islands".

Though he did not speak English fluently until his twenties, he came to be considered a master prose stylist who guide a non-English sensibility into English literature. He was assigned British nationality in 1886 but always regarded himself a Pole. He enrolled the French Merchant Marine and began to work on British ships, learning English from his shipmates. He was made a master mariner and worked more than sixteen years before an event motivated him to try his hand at writing. He wrote stories and novels, many with a nautical setting, that represents trials of the human spirit in the middle of an unexpressive, transparent universe. During his lifetime Conrad was praised for the assets of his prose and his offerings of dangerous life at sea and in foreign places. His works include the novels Almayer's Folly (1895), Lord Jim (1900), Nostromo (1904), and The Secret Agent (1907) and the short story 'Heart of Darkness ' (1902). He died in August 1924.
