Great Writers: Joseph Conrad

2001 Rated NR 45m

The Great Writers series explores the life and work of Joseph Conrad, the Polish-born author of such classics as Lord Jim and Heart of Darkness. Orphaned at 11, Conrad was raised by a Russian uncle. He was on his own by his late teens, taking a job as a seaman to escape assignment into the Russian army. These early experiences would profoundly affect his style, which challenged traditional realism and embraced the grittiness of the 20th century.
