DESCRIPTION

Joseph Conrad's An Outcast of the Islands (1896) deals with man's constant struggle against nature and his own impulses. A man without empathy, Peter Willems, a clerk in Macassar is granted a second chance at a remote river trading post where he falls into traps set by him and others. As the native population tries to win back power, a war breaks out and entangles the characters.
 Joseph Conrad was a Polish novelist who lived most of his life in Britain and didn't learn English until age 21. The young Conrad lived an adventurous life involving gunrunning and political conspiracy, and apparently had a disastrous love affair that plunged him into despair. He served 16 years in the merchant navy.In 1894, at age 36, Conrad reluctantly gave up the sea, partly because of poor health and partly because he had decided on a literary career.
