Conrad J. The Nigger of the Narcissus Twixt Land Sea Tales

Conrad Joseph The Nigger of the Narcissus


When a black sailor with tuberculosis boards the Narcissus, the shadow of death falls across the ship and the lingering gloom brings out both the best and the worst in the crew. The harsh endurance test of survival at sea, magnified by the dying sailor's condition, sends the crewmen through an emotional gamut, ranging from pity and selfless compassion to fear, resentment, and a profound hatred that boils perilously close to mutiny. Joseph Conrad drew upon his two decades of experience in the British merchant marine for the vital, memorable characterizations and realistic depictions of seafaring life in this and many of his other works.

Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. These works are unique in Conrad's oeuvre in being openly autobiographical - but in scope and literary form, they differ widely. In The Mirror of the Sea Conrad explores his vast knowledge of the sea in an era when the sailing ship gave way, after thousands of years, to steam. A Personal Record is Conrad's account of himself, his cultural background, and the central motives in his life as a seaman and a writer separated from the country where he was born.
