Born in 1857 in Poland, Joseph Conrad became a British citizen just before he turned thirty. In the intervening years he lost both parents, becoming an orphan at eleven and thereafter raised by an uncle, who let the boy go at age sixteen to Marseille, France. There, Conrad began to work on merchant ships, and at times had stints of gun running amid the intrigue of political conspiracy. However, at age thirty-six, he turned his life from one of ships to one of literary pursuit. Conrad brought to English literature both a layer of style and a deeper examination of the human psyche in a wealth of work. Today, many of his novels are regarded as some of the finest in English literature, among them, Lord Jim, Nostromo, The Shadow Line, and of course, Heart Of Darkness.

In this volume, we hear four of Conrad’s celebrated short stories: “The Brute,” “The Lagoon,” “Youth,” and “The Informer.”
