Synopsis:

Lord Jim tells the story of a young, idealistic Englishman--'as unflinching as a hero in a book'--who is disgraced by an act of cowardice while serving as an officer on the Patna, a merchant-ship sailing from 'an Eastern port' with a party of Muslim pilgrims. His life is blighted: an isolated scandal assumes horrifying proportions. An older man, Marlow, befriends Jim, but his efforts to find him employment meet with little success until, at last, he is able to establish him in Patusan, a remote native settlement on one of the islands of the Malay Archipelago.


Review:

"However one may weary of the slippery elusiveness of the psychic conclusions, or may rebel against the ultimate tragedy of the book, there are compensations of depth and beauty upon every page. Never were Mr. Conrad's felicity of phrase and charm of atmosphere more obvious than in 'Lord Jim.' His danger is that, like Mr. James, he may become entangled in his own supreme literary art, and may sacrifice simplicity and directness of purpose to his very perfection of method. As it stands, however, a book of the rare quality of 'Lord Jim' is something to receive with gratitude and joy, and a sense of distinction conferred on the readers of romance."

New York Times Book Review, 12/01/1900
