What gave [Conrad] such a rare ability to see the arrogance and theft at the heart of imperialism? Much of it surely had to do with the fact that he himself, as a Pole, knew what it was like to live in conquered territory Conrad's poet father, Apollo Korzeniowski, was a Polish nationalist and an opponent of serfdom Conrad's experience in the Belgian-run Congo made him one of the fiercest critics of the "white man's mission.

By accepting the job in the trading company, he joined, for once in his life, an organized, large-scale group activity on land It is not accidental that the Congo expedition remained an isolated event in Conrad's life.

Until his death he remained a recluse in the social sense and never became involved with any institution or clearly defined group of people.

Conrad was a Russian subject, having been born in the Russian part of what had once been the Polish—Lithuanian Commonwealth.

After the father's death, Conrad's uncle Bobrowski had attempted to secure Austrian citizenship for him—to no avail, probably because Conrad had not received permission from Russian authorities to remain abroad permanently and had not been released from being a Russian subject.

Conrad could not return to Ukraine, in the Russian Empire—he would have been liable to many years' military service and, as the son of political exiles, to harassment.

In a letter of 9 August , Conrad's uncle Bobrowski broached two important subjects: [note 38] the desirability of Conrad's naturalisation abroad tantamount to release from being a Russian subject and Conrad's plans to join the British merchant marine.

I never wished you to become naturalized in France, mainly because of the compulsory military service I thought, however, of your getting naturalized in Switzerland Eventually Conrad would make his home in England.

On 2 July he applied for British nationality, which was granted on 19 August To achieve the latter, he had to make many visits to the Russian Embassy in London and politely reiterate his request.

In Circular Quay , Sydney, Australia, a plaque in a "writers walk" commemorates Conrad's visits to Australia between and The plaque notes that "Many of his works reflect his 'affection for that young continent.

The square's dedication was timed to coincide with release of Francis Ford Coppola 's Heart of Darkness -inspired film, Apocalypse Now.

Notwithstanding the undoubted sufferings that Conrad endured on many of his voyages, sentimentality and canny marketing place him at the best lodgings in several of his destinations.

Hotels across the Far East still lay claim to him as an honoured guest, with, however, no evidence to back their claims: Singapore's Raffles Hotel continues to claim he stayed there though he lodged, in fact, at the Sailors' Home nearby.

His visit to Bangkok also remains in that city's collective memory, and is recorded in the official history of The Oriental Hotel where he never, in fact, stayed, lodging aboard his ship, the Otago along with that of a less well-behaved guest, Somerset Maugham , who pilloried the hotel in a short story in revenge for attempts to eject him.

Conrad is also reported to have stayed at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel —at a port that, in fact, he never visited. Later literary admirers, notably Graham Greene , followed closely in his footsteps, sometimes requesting the same room and perpetuating myths that have no basis in fact.

No Caribbean resort is yet known to have claimed Conrad's patronage, although he is believed to have stayed at a Fort-de-France pension upon arrival in Martinique on his first voyage, in , when he travelled as a passenger on the Mont Blanc.

In April , a monument to Conrad was unveiled in the Russian town of Vologda , where he and his parents lived in exile in — The monument was removed, with unclear explanation, in June After the publication of Chance in , Conrad was the subject of more discussion and praise than any other English writer of the time.

He had a genius for companionship, and his circle of friends, which he had begun assembling even prior to his first publications, included authors and other leading lights in the arts, such as Henry James , Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham , John Galsworthy , Edward Garnett , Garnett's wife Constance Garnett translator of Russian literature , Stephen Crane , Hugh Walpole , George Bernard Shaw , H.

In the early s Conrad composed a short series of novels in collaboration with Ford Madox Ford. In and Conrad's growing renown and prestige among writers and critics in continental Europe fostered his hopes for a Nobel Prize in Literature.

It was apparently the French and Swedes—not the English—who favoured Conrad's candidacy. Conrad's narrative style and anti-heroic characters [4] have influenced many authors, including T.

Coetzee , [67] and Salman Rushdie. A striking portrait of Conrad, aged about 46, was drawn by the historian and poet Henry Newbolt , who met him about One thing struck me at once—the extraordinary difference between his expression in profile and when looked at full face.

Then [a]s we sat in our little half-circle round the fire, and talked on anything and everything, I saw a third Conrad emerge—an artistic self, sensitive and restless to the last degree.

The more he talked the more quickly he consumed his cigarettes And presently, when I asked him why he was leaving London after By that dull stream of obliterated faces?

On 12 October , American music critic James Huneker visited Conrad and later recalled being received by "a man of the world, neither sailor nor novelist, just a simple-mannered gentleman, whose welcome was sincere, whose glance was veiled, at times far-away, whose ways were French, Polish, anything but 'literary,' bluff or English.

After respective separate visits to Conrad in August and September , two British aristocrats, the socialite Lady Ottoline Morrell and the mathematician and philosopher Bertrand Russell —who were lovers at the time—recorded their impressions of the novelist.

In her diary, Morrell wrote:. I found Conrad himself standing at the door of the house ready to receive me His manner was perfect, almost too elaborate; so nervous and sympathetic that every fibre of him seemed electric He talked English with a strong accent, as if he tasted his words in his mouth before pronouncing them; but he talked extremely well, though he had always the talk and manner of a foreigner He was dressed very carefully in a blue double-breasted jacket.

He talked He spoke of the horrors of the Congo , from the moral and physical shock of which he said he had never recovered He made me feel so natural and very much myself, that I was almost afraid of losing the thrill and wonder of being there, although I was vibrating with intense excitement inside His eyes under their pent-house lids revealed the suffering and the intensity of his experiences; when he spoke of his work, there came over them a sort of misty, sensuous, dreamy look, but they seemed to hold deep down the ghosts of old adventures and experiences—once or twice there was something in them one almost suspected of being wicked But then I believe whatever strange wickedness would tempt this super-subtle Pole, he would be held in restraint by an equally delicate sense of honour In his talk he led me along many paths of his life, but I felt that he did not wish to explore the jungle of emotions that lay dense on either side, and that his apparent frankness had a great reserve.

A month later, Bertrand Russell visited Conrad at Capel House, and the same day on the train wrote down his impressions:.

I plucked up courage to tell him what I find in his work—the boring down into things to get to the very bottom below the apparent facts.

Russell's Autobiography , published over half a century later in , confirms his original experience:. My first impression was one of surprise.

He spoke English with a very strong foreign accent, and nothing in his demeanour in any way suggested the sea. He was an aristocratic Polish gentleman to his fingertips At our very first meeting, we talked with continually increasing intimacy.

We seemed to sink through layer after layer of what was superficial, till gradually both reached the central fire.

It was an experience unlike any other I have known. We looked into each other's eyes, half appalled and half intoxicated to find ourselves together in such a region.

The emotion was as intense as passionate love, and at the same time all-embracing. I came away bewildered, and hardly able to find my way among ordinary affairs.

It was not only Anglophones who remarked on Conrad's very strong foreign accent when speaking English. The subsequent friendship and correspondence between Conrad and Russell lasted, with long intervals, to the end of Conrad's life.

In one letter, Conrad avowed his "deep admiring affection, which, if you were never to see me again and forget my existence tomorrow will be unalterably yours usque ad finem.

Conrad looked with less optimism than Russell on the possibilities of scientific and philosophic knowledge. An outsider in exile; an outsider during his visits to his family in Conrad's sense of loneliness throughout his exile's life found memorable expression in the short story, " Amy Foster ".

A number of works in various genres and media have been based on, or inspired by, Conrad's writings, including:. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This is attested by errors on tablets and monuments. But examination of documents—not many, but quite a sufficient number, survive—permits an entirely certain answer to the title question.

These given names, in this order they appear in no other order in any records , were given by Conrad himself in an extensive autobiographical letter to his friend Edward Garnett of 20 January Polish text in Listy J.

Conrada [ Letters of J. And this single given name, and the surname 'Korzeniowski,' figured in his passport and other official documents.

For example, when 'Joseph Conrad' visited his native land after a long absence in , just at the outbreak of World War I, the papers issued to him by the military authorities of the Imperial-Royal Austro-Hungarian Monarchy called him 'Konrad Korzeniowski.

Apollo celebrated his son's christening with a characteristic patriotic—religious poem: "To my son born in the 85th year of Muscovite oppression".

It alluded to the partition of , burdened the new-born [ Though foes May spread before you A web of happiness Renounce it all: love your poverty Baby, son, tell yourself You are without land, without love, Without country, without people, While Poland — your Mother is in her grave For only your Mother is dead — and yet She is your faith, your palm of martyrdom This thought will make your courage grow, Give Her and yourself immortality.

Conrad seems to have picked up this idea from Spiridion: in his fourth letter, he signed himself "J. Conrad"—the first recorded use of his future pen name.

In short: he was plotting against those who trusted him. Najder , p. Then it was discovered The whole affair became Captain [Escarras] and the ship-owner [Jean-Baptiste Delestang] proved fruitless However, before all this happened another catastrophe—this time financial—befell him.

While still in possession of the 3, fr[ancs] sent to him for the voyage, he met his former captain, Mr. Duteil, who persuaded him to participate in some enterprise on the coasts of Spain—some kind of contraband!

He invested 1, fr[ancs] in it and made over , which pleased them greatly, so Konrad was left behind, unable to sign on for a ship—poor as a church mouse and, moreover, heavily in debt—for while speculating he had lived on credit Villefranche, where an American squadron was anchored, He achieves nothing there and, wishing to improve his finances, tries his luck in Monte Carlo and loses the fr[ancs] he had borrowed.

Having managed his affairs so excellently, he returns to Marseilles and one fine evening invites his friend the creditor [Fecht] to tea, for an appointed hour, and before his arrival attempts to take his life with a revolver.

Let this detail remain between us, as I have been telling everyone that he was wounded in a duel The bullet goes Luckily, all his addresses were left on top of his things so that this worthy Mr.

Fecht could instantly let me know Apart from the 3, fr[ancs] which [Konrad] had lost, I had to pay as much again to settle his debts.

Had he been my own son, I wouldn't have done it, but Nevertheless, I swore that even if I knew that he would shoot himself a second time—there would be no repetition of the same weakness on my part.

To some extent, also, I was influenced by considerations of our national honor, so that it should not be said that one of us had exploited the affection, which Konrad undoubtedly enjoyed, of all those with whom he came into contact My study of the Individual has convinced me that he is not a bad boy, only one who is extremely sensitive, conceited, reserved, and in addition excitable.

He appears to know his profession well and to like it. His frequent changes of home, according to Najder, were usually signs of a search for psychological regeneration.

It does not seem to me that I have been unfaithful to my country by having proved to the English that a gentleman from the Ukraine [Conrad had been born in a part of Ukraine that had belonged to Poland before ] can be as good a sailor as they, and has something to tell them in their own language.

For hours I remained by his side watching the feverish glitter of his eyes that seemed fixed on some object outside my vision, and listening to the meaningless phrases and lengthy speeches, not a word of which I could understand All that night Joseph Conrad continued to rave in Polish, a habit he kept up every time any illness had him in its grip.

Jeffrey Meyers, Joseph Conrad: a Biography , p. For hours I remained by his side watching the feverish glitter of his eyes Najder , Joseph Conrad: A Life , p.

When at a loss for an English expression, he would use a French one or describe a Polish one, and he often spoke and corresponded with Anglophones and others in French; while speaking and corresponding with Poles in Polish.

Najder , Joseph Conrad: A Life , pp. Conrad's knowledge of Polish, with its mostly phonemic alphabet, would have helped him master French and English spelling , much as Mario Pei 's knowledge of Italian gave him an "advantage to be able to memorize the written form of an English word in the phonetic pronunciation that such a written form would have had in my native Italian.

This ability would, of course, by itself have done nothing to ensure Conrad's command of English pronunciation , which remained always strange to Anglophone ears.

It is difficult to master the pronunciation of an unfamiliar language after puberty , and Conrad was 20 before he first stepped onto English soil.
