He had, of course, another name, but he was anxious that it should not be pronounced. His incognito, which had as many holes as a sieve, was not meant to hide a personality but a fact. When the fact broke through the incognito he would leave suddenly the seaport where he happened to be at the time and go to another--generally farther east. He kept to seaports because he was a seaman in exile from the sea, and had Ability in the abstract, which is good for no other work but that of a water-clerk.

He retreated in good order towards the rising sun, and the fact followed him casually but inevitably. Thus in the course of years he was known successively in Bombay, in Calcutta, in Rangoon, in Penang, in Batavia--and in each of these halting-places was just Jim the water-clerk. Afterwards, when his keen perception of the Intolerable drove him away for good from seaports and white men, even into the virgin forest, the Malays of the jungle village, where he had elected to conceal his deplorable faculty, added a word to the monosyllable of his incognito.

They called him Tuan Jim: as one might say--Lord Jim. Originally he came from a parsonage. Many commanders of fine merchant-ships come from these abodes of piety and peace. Jim's father possessed such certain knowledge of the Unknowable as made for the righteousness of people in cottages without disturbing the ease of mind of those whom an unerring Providence enables to live in mansions. The little church on a hill had the mossy greyness of a rock seen through a ragged screen of leaves.

  • It had stood there for centuries, but the trees around probably remembered the laying of the first stone. Below, the red front of the rectory gleamed with a warm tint in the midst of grass-plots, flower-beds, and fir-trees, with an orchard at the back, a paved stableyard to the left, and the sloping glass of greenhouses tacked along a wall of bricks.

    The living had belonged to the family for generations; but Jim was one of five sons, and when after a course of light holiday literature his vocation for the sea had declared itself, he was sent at once to a "training-ship for oYcers of the mercantile marine.

    Lord Jim & Nostromo

    He was generally liked. He had the third place in navigation and pulled stroke in the first cutter. Having a steady head with an excellent physique, he was very smart aloft. His station was in the fore-top, and often from there he looked down, with the contempt of a man destined to shine in the midst of dangers, at the peaceful multitude of roofs cut in two by the brown tide of the stream, while scattered on the outskirts of the surrounding plain the factory chimneys rose perpendicular against a grimy sky, each slender like a pencil, and belching out smoke like a volcano.

    He could see the big ships departing, the broad-beamed ferries constantly on the move, the little boats floating far below his feet, with the hazy splendour of the sea in the distance, and the hope of a stirring life in the world of adventure. On the lower deck in the babel of two hundred voices he would forget himself, and beforehand live in his mind the sea-life of light literature. He saw himself saving people from sinking ships, cutting away masts in a hurricane, swimming through a surf with a line; or as a lonely castaway, barefooted and half naked, walking on uncovered reefs in search of shellfish to stave oV starvation.

    He confronted savages on tropical shores, quelled mutinies on the high seas, and in a small boat upon the ocean kept up the hearts of despairing men--always an example of devotion to duty, and as unflinching as a hero in a book. Come along. The boys were streaming up the ladders. Above could be heard a great scurrying about and shouting, and when he got through the hatchway he stood still--as if confounded. It was the dusk of a winter's day.

    The gale had freshened since noon, stopping the traYc on the river and now blew with the strength of a hurricane in fitful bursts that boomed like salvoes of great guns firing over the ocean.

Joined Aug 21, Messages 6, A subforum for discussion of the life and writings of this outstanding Polish-born English novelist , and of "Conradian" experience. I request that discussions of movies and other works derived from Conrad's be discussed elsewhere. However, it would be okay to discuss here things such as modern journeys e. Everyone is familiar with Heart of Darkness , I suppose, but I treasure most The Secret Agent , such a superb performance, a masterpiece of scorn, compassion, and control.

    At the moment I'm reading a relatively late novel, Chance , for the first time. This is the story of the daughter of a bankrupt swindler, and it's about the dignity and necessity of decent care for other people. So far it seems to me a very fine novel. I'd like to reread Under Western Eyes before too terribly long. Hope to hear from you if you have things to say about Conrad. No doubt a fantastic writer and one of earliest "Agent" stories. Completely different of course from Riddle of the Sands another or The 39 steps. Joined Mar 21, Messages 9, Location Australia.

    Agreed - he is a great writer. I am currently reading The Secret History of Costaguana which is an interesting and muti-layered fictionalized tale centered around Conrad's Nostromo , the history of Columbia and the building of the Panama Canal amongst other features.

    Lord Jim and Nostromo by Conrad, Joseph

    It is a novel by arguably the best of Colombia's modern generation of writers Juan Gabriel Vasquez and while it may not be appropriate for me to post a review within this thread I still plan to post a review in this subforum as I begin to focus on South American and Eastern European writers. I think at least one other person here has already read this? As it also relates to Conrad's Nostromo I want to read this in conjunction with Vasquez's novel as part of the review, hence the fortuitousness of this thread by Extollager.

    Stay tuned Please do follow through on these plans if you can, Gollum. I hope some visitors to this thread can take time to read the following passage from the beginning of Part Two of Conrad's Chance. It has qualities that are much of the reason why I read -- not just read Conrad, but read at all.

    I won't try now to specify them. Just read this -- about two pages in the book Marlow eyed me for a moment in a peculiar manner. The fellow used to run into one of these narrow tidal creeks on the Essex shore.
