Lord Jim (1900) is a story of ships and the sea and quasi-imperial adventure, and a profound exploration of courage, honor, and man's conduct in an imperfect world. Jim's single act of cowardice blights his life and the atonement he demands of himself is absolute.

This compact novel, completed in 1900, as with so many of the great novels of the time, is at its baseline a book of the sea. An English boy in a simple town has dreams bigger than the outdoors and embarks at an early age into the sailor's life. The waters he travels reward him with the ability to explore the human spirit, while Joseph Conrad launches the story into both an exercise of his technical prowess and a delicately crafted picture of a character who reaches the status of a literary hero. A classic novel.From the Publisher:
