Book Description: Penguin Books, 1980. paperback. Book Condition: Very Good In Wrappers. ‘New York. 1980. Penguin Books. Reprinted Penguin Modern Classic Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. paperback. 0140035664. keywords: Penguin Modern Classic Literature England Paperback. inventory # 30687. FROM THE PUBLISHER - First published in 1902, Conrad's story describes intensely and in stark detail how greed can so easily drive civilised and enlightened men to revert to primitive savagery. Set against the background of the European ivory trade in Africa, Heart Of Darkness is narrator Marlow's account of his journey in search of the legendary and mystical Kurtz, the most successful trader of them all, who is now reported to be ill. Marlow's quest becomes both a harrowing journey of self-discovery and haunting description of the brutality of colonial exploitation; while Kurtz himself is one of the most memorable creations in modern fiction. Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski; Berdichev, Imperial Russia, 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924, Bishopsbourne, Kent, England) was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England. He was granted British nationality in 1886, but always considered himself a Pole. Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a marked accent). He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature. While some of his works have a strain of romanticism, he is viewed as a precursor of modernist literature. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors, including D. H. Lawrence, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, Graham Greene, Malcolm Lowry, William Golding, William S. Burroughs, Joseph Heller, Italo Calvino, Gabriel García Márquez, J. G. Ballard, John le Carré, V.S. Naipaul, Philip Roth, Hunter S. Thompson, J.M. Coetzee and Salman Rushdie. Films have been adapted from, or inspired by, Conrad's Almayer's Folly, An Outcast of the Islands, Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, The Duel, Victory, The Shadow Line, and The Rover. Writing in the heyday of the British Empire, Conrad drew on his native Poland's national experiences and on his personal experiences in the French and British merchant navies, to create short stories and novels that reflect aspects of a European-dominated world, while plumbing the depths of the human soul. Appreciated early on by literary cognoscenti, his fiction and nonfiction have gained an almost prophetic cachet in the light of subsequent national and international disasters of the 20th and 21st centuries.’.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - With this book Joseph Conrad set the style for a whole class of literature - the novel of the outcast from civilization finding refuge in the tropics. The natives of Patusan in the Far East worship the bold young Englishman by the name of 'Lord Jim', but he despises himself. Tortured by an act of cowardice and desertion that wrecked his career in the Merchant Service years before and tormented by his ideal of what an officer should be, he has fled from scandal farther and farther East. It is only here in remote Patusan, filling a post given him by the trader Stein, that he at last finds the will to cease sacrificing himself on the altar of conscience. He becomes a part of life again by accepting the 'destructive element within himself.' And he follows his star to the end - marrying the beautiful half - caste, Jewel, defending Patusan against the evil 'Gentleman Brown.' This is a story of dramatic action and psychological penetration, a work which the critic Morton Dauwen Zabel calls an example of Conrad's 'central theme. , the grip of circumstances that enforce self - discovery and its cognate, the discovery of reality or truth. .'.

Very Good In Wrappers. 160 pages. CD4. paperback. Introduction By Albert J. Guerard. [ 0004 ]. keywords: Signet Classic Paperback England Literature 20th Century. inventory # 30634. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The dark places of the human soul - this is the region that Joseph Conrad so brilliantly explores. In the steaming jungles of the Congo or the vast reaches of the sea, it is man's capacity for good and for evil that is his enduring theme. Heart of Darkness tells of a powerful European, Kurtz, who reverts to awful savagery in an isolated native trading post. The Secret Sharer describes the terrible conflict of a young captain who is torn between his duty to his ship and his loyalty to a young officer with whom he identifies himself after the murder of a mutinous crew member. Compelling, vivid, exotic, suspenseful, these are among the half - dozen greatest short novels in the English language. 'To make you hear, to make you feel, above all to make you see' - this was first and last, the aim of Conrad.

Book Description: Signet/New American Library, 1987. paperback. ‘New York. 1987. Signet/New American Library. 1st Printing Of This Signet Classic Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Wrappers. 266 pages. September 1987. CE2114. paperback. 0451521145. Introduction By Alfred Kazin. [ 2114 ]. keywords: Signet Classic Paperback Literature England 20th Century. inventory # 31492. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Carrying a dramatic intensity beyond that even of his masterpiece, HEART OF DARKNESS, UNDER WESTERN EYES is Conrad's third and last major novel of political treachery and oppression. Along with THE SECRET AGENT and NOSTROMO, it presages the espionage thrillers of John Le Carre and Graham Greene with its spies and counterspies, brooding atmosphere of suspense, and riveting portrayal of betrayal, guilt, and intrigue. For Conrad himself it was a work of wrenching emotionality that took him to the edge of mental breakdown. The novel begins with a bomb that explodes to assassinate a hated Russian minister of police - and kill a number of innocent bystanders as well. The young student who first hides the perpetrator, then betrays him and becomes a spy among his exiled comrades, is Razumov, who in one irrevocable moment becomes entangled in a moral dilemma from which there is no escape. Conrad professed that he intended to render 'the psychology of Russia', a country being driven by a Czarist despotism into anarchy by revolutionaries 'unable to see that all they can effect is merely a name of names'. What he created in this masterwork published six years before the Russian Revolution was a chillingly accurate portrayal of the future - and of the terrorists who, acting in the name of liberty, still haunt our times.

Book Description: Signet/New American Library, 1963. paperback. Book Condition: Very Good In Wrappers. ‘New York. 1963. Signet/New American Library. Reprinted Signet Classic Paperback Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. 448 pages. January 1963. CT150. paperback. Cover: Kossin. Foreword By Albert J. Guerard. [ 0150 ]. keywords: Signet Classic Literature Paperback England 20th Century 19th Century. inventory # 33098. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Includes - TYPHOON, The Nigger of the 'Narcissus,' Karain, An Outpost of Progress, The Lagoon, Youth, Amy Foster, & The Shadow - Line. The short novels and stories that comprise this Signet Classic are an extraordinary blend of exciting adventure and high seriousness - they are, as Albert Guerard says, 'an achievement unique in English fiction.' In his depiction of the narrow world of ship and jungle outpost the master storyteller explores the destiny of 'men of action.' He probes their reaction to tests of moral and physical courage, their conceptions of honor and of loyalty to society and to the individual. He deals with the conscientious man's need for self - punishment, with his lifelong efforts to expiate an involuntary crime of betrayal. In these tales he treats the themes that were to preoccupy him in his major works. Whether writing satirically of Europeans invading the wilderness of the Congo, or compassionately of a man obsessed by the mystery and danger of the Eastern seas, Conrad takes the reader on a profound personal search of man's voyage - within himself.

[ 0239 ]. keywords: Signet Classic Paperback England Literature. inventory # 24292. FROM THE PUBLISHER - 'An Outcast of the Islands occupies a crucial place in Conrad's career. it marks the beginning of his real commitment to the craft of fiction. .' Thus writes Thomas Moser of this dramatic tale of East and West. Set against a magnificently rendered background of tropical river and jungle, the novel depicts the gradual degeneration of Willems, its white protagonist: his progression through a career of treachery to final self. betrayal, his descent through sensuality to final humiliation amid the growing horror of his alienation from compatriots and natives alike. Combining vivid, sensuous detail with acute psychological insight, An Outcast of the Islands represents one of Conrad's most memorable explorations of the primitive impulses that plague civilized man, and of the fundamental spiritual isolation of the human condition. It stands as a superb projection of a complex tragic vision, a vision entranced by the rich romance of life, yet drawn eternally toward the abyss. Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski; Berdichev, Imperial Russia, 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924, Bishopsbourne, Kent, England) was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England.

[ 2557 ]. keywords: Signet Classic Paperback Literature England 20th Century. inventory # 31564. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Renowned for his haunting explorations of the dark places in the human soul, Joseph Conrad made a dramatic shift in CHANCE, his first work to achieve popular success, and his only novel to feature a female protagonist. Ostensibly a romantic and conventional tales, it is now seen as Conrad's most technically ambitious work, a psychologically penetrating portrait of a young woman's metamorphosis from a vulnerable, almost tragic figure to a self - respecting woman. Flora de Barral, alone in the world at fifteen when her father is imprisoned, soon learns the harsh facts that a woman in her position 'has no resource but herself. Her only means of action is to be what she is'. Flora's struggle not only to survive but to thrive in the oppressive moral atmosphere that surrounds her is at the heart of this deeply human tale - an essential addition to the Conrad canon, and an enduring testimony to one of the greatest innovators of the modern novel. Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski; Berdichev, Imperial Russia, 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924, Bishopsbourne, Kent, England) was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England.

[ 0258 ]. keywords: Signet Classic Paperback England Literature. inventory # 33644. FROM THE PUBLISHER - 'A new great writer and a new and splendid region of romance have entered into our literature.' Thus the critic T. P O'Connor hailed the initial publication of this, Joseph Conrad's first work of fiction. The scene of Almayer's Folly is a trading post on the Malayan archipelago; its theme is that of physical and moral decay, as the tantalizing dreams of wealth which have sustained the novel's white protagonist elude him, leaving him in helpless isolation. Vividly contrasting the frailty of human hopes and designs with the fathomless power of Nature, the book embodies the qualities of style and vision which were to place its author among the masters of the English novel. It stands as both a striking psychological study and a portrayal of the confrontation of alien cultures, a work in which Conrad, as Jocelyn Baines declares, 'employs the full emotive force of his vocabulary to evoke the exotic, corrupting power of the East.' This Signet Classic volume includes two of Joseph Conrad's later stories of the East and the sea - Freya of the Seven Isles and The Planter of Malata.

Front cover illustration by Albert Pinkham Ryder-'Marine'. Edited & With An Introduction by Samuel Hynes. keywords: Literature England 20th Century. inventory # 31606. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Most readers know Joseph Conrad for creating Marlow’s harrowing journey through the African Congo in Heart of Darkness. Conrad was adept at capturing the physical and cultural experiences he gleaned from 15 years at sea, but he also wrote political thrillers, essays, and plays based on his own short stories. His best works tend to be brief, but pack in a remarkable perspicacity about humanity’s deepest faults. Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski; Berdichev, Imperial Russia, 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924, Bishopsbourne, Kent, England) was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England. He was granted British nationality in 1886, but always considered himself a Pole. Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a marked accent). He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature. While some of his works have a strain of romanticism, he is viewed as a precursor of modernist literature. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors, including D. H. Lawrence, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, Graham Greene, Malcolm Lowry, William Golding, William S. Burroughs, Joseph Heller, Italo Calvino, Gabriel García Márquez, J. G. Ballard, John le Carré, V.S. Naipaul, Philip Roth, Hunter S. Thompson, J.M. Coetzee and Salman Rushdie. Films have been adapted from, or inspired by, Conrad's Almayer's Folly, An Outcast of the Islands, Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, The Duel, Victory, The Shadow Line, and The Rover. Writing in the heyday of the British Empire, Conrad drew on his native Poland's national experiences and on his personal experiences in the French and British merchant navies, to create short stories and novels that reflect aspects of a European-dominated world, while plumbing the depths of the human soul. Appreciated early on by literary cognoscenti, his fiction and nonfiction have gained an almost prophetic cachet in the light of subsequent national and international disasters of the 20th and 21st centuries.’.

War, conflict, trauma, memory, and communication in the public sphere are some of the major themes of an oeuvre that spans four decades. His practice, known as Interrogative Design, combines art and technology as a critical design practice in order to highlight marginal social communities and add legitimacy to cultural issues that are often given little design attention. He lives and works in New York City and teaches in Cambridge, Massachusetts where he is currently professor in residence of art, design, and the public domain for the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD). Wodiczko was formerly director of the Interrogative Design Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he was a professor in the Visual Arts Program since 1991. He also teaches as Visiting Professor in the Psychology Department at the Warsaw School of Social Psychology. Krzysztof Wodiczko, son of Polish orchestra conductor Bohdan Wodiczko, was born in 1943 during the Warsaw ghetto uprising and grew up in post-war, Soviet-occupied, Poland. In 1967 while still a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. 80 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781157041344

Book Description: Austeria, Krakow, 2013. Hardcover. (155X213). polski/Polish; Pages/stron: 468; Categories: Dzienniki, wspomnienia, listy; Opis: Ten wedrowiec, ktoremu nie dane bylo odpoczac – przewodnik niewidzialnej karawany, ktora w nieszczesnym czwartym dziesiecioleciu naszego stulecia urosla do wymiaru rzeki zalewajacej swiat, byl zawsze i wszedzie gosciem. Stronnik Habsburgow bez ojczyzny. Kosmopolita i mnich, dla ktorego swiat caly byl pustelnia. Nigdy jednak nie traktowal mrukliwie i nieprzychylnie kogos, kto bez zapowiedzi nawiedzal jego samotnie, lecz uprzejmie zapraszal do siebie.Z wyrozumialoscia glaskal w Mampe bialego kocura, ktory zabawiajac sie kartkami jego rekopisu, rozrzucal je lapkami. Zamowil szklaneczke sherry dla tunezyjskiego handlarza dywanami, ktory ustawil sie dokladnie pod oknem malenkiej café na Boulevard St. Michel i – godzina po godzinie – monotonnie zachwalal swoj towar. W najglebszym skupieniu pracowal w hotelach i kawiarniach – trwal w bliskim sasiedztwie pulsu wielkiego miasta. Nocami mogl wloczyc sie z kims godzinami po ulicach, gadac, milczec, wpadac do jakiegos baru, aby zjesc cos niewielkiego i nieco wiecej wypic, po czym znikal za drzwiami hotelu z lekko uniesionymi ramionami, okrytymi brazowym, luzno opadajacym plaszczem, w wasko skrojonych, niemodnych spodniach la Franciszek Jozef. Nie kladl sie spac.Oczami wyobrazni widzialem, jak nocami chodzil po pokoju tam i z powrotem, toczac ze soba monologi – dopoki pierwsza poswiata dnia nie musnela dywanu.Byl zupelnie z tego swiata, a jednak oddzielony od ludzi swoja madroscia. Ta madrosc sprawiala, ze gdziekolwiek bywal, stawal od razu w centrum uwagi. Moglby jednym czarownym zakleciem porwac za soba, niczym szczurolap, masy, ale na to byl zbyt dobry i za madry. W gronie moich autorow byl Joseph Roth arystokrata. Kazdemu okazywal szacunek i nigdy nie podnosil glosu; byl dla kazdego – nie tracac przy tym siebie.Gustav Kiepenheuer, W holdzie Josephowi Rothowi.

Auszug: Benno Elkan OBE (\* 2. Dezember 1877 in Dortmund; + 10. Januar 1960 in London) war ein deutscher Bildhauer, der die Große Menora vor der Knesset in Jerusalem und zahlreiche Denkmale, Büsten und Medaillen in Deutschland und England geschaffen hat. Elkan begann sein Schaffen als Bildhauer in seiner Heimatstadt Dortmund mit Grabdenkmalen. Später porträtierte er Militärs, Staatsmänner, Wissenschaftler und Künstler, vor allem aus Deutschland, Frankreich und England in Büsten und Medaillen. Elkan erhielt als jüdischer Künstler 1935 Berufsverbot und emigrierte nach London. In Deutschland war er zunächst vergessen, bis seine Werke in den 1950er-Jahren erneut in Ausstellungen gezeigt wurden. Elkans Schaffen ist keiner festen Stilrichtung zuzuordnen. Elkan war das einzige Kind des Schneidermeisters Salomon Elkan, Mitinhaber eines Herrentextilgeschäftes in der Dortmunder Innenstadt und seiner jungen Frau Rosalie (\* 1861 in Heidelberg).

Book Description: Mareverlag Gmbh Okt 2007, 2007. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 223x150x46 mm. Neuware - «Er ging nach Marseille, bestieg ein Schiff, verdingte sich als Matrose, befuhr die Weltmeere und wurde einer der größten Meister der ozeanischen Sprachen.»Joseph Roth über Joseph ConradWer sich an Joseph Conrad mit Floskeln wie «Sie als Autor » wandte, wurde in der Regel unwirsch unterbrochen: «Ja, ich bin Autor, aber ich bin auch ein Mensch. Bitte vergessen Sie das nicht!» Dieser Mensch sagte von sich selbst, dass er drei Leben hatte: als Pole, als Seemann, als Schriftsteller. Doch Joseph Conrad war auch Ehemann, Vater und Freund und als solcher selbst denen, die ihm am nächsten standen, nur allzu oft ein menschliches Rätsel. John Stape zeichnet die verschlungenen Lebenslinien des Mannes nach, der am 3. Dezember 1857 als Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski in der Nähe von Kiew geboren wurde, für die britische Krone zur See fuhr und später als «Joseph Conrad» zu unsterblichem Ruhm gelangte. Conrads Meisterschaft, die menschliche Seele im Spiegel der See zu ergründen, findet jetzt erstmals auf ihn selbst Anwendung: John Stape ist der erste Biograph Conrads, der einen lückenlosen Einblick in die umfangreiche Korrespondenz des Autors nehmen konnte wodurch eine bisher ungekannte Nähe zu dem Mann entsteht, der sich selbst zeit seines Lebens ein Fremder blieb. 543 pp. Deutsch.
