9780910395342: The Mirror of the Sea

First published in 1906, The Mirror of the Sea was the first of Joseph Conrad's two autobiographical memoirs. Discussing it, he called the book "a very intimate revelation. . . . I have attempted here to lay bare with the unreserve of a last hour's confession the terms of my relation with the sea, which beginning mysteriously, like any great passion the inscrutable Gods send to mortals, went on unreasoning and invincible, surviving the test of disillusion, defying the disenchantment that lurks in every day of a strenuous life; went on full of love's delight and love's anguish, facing them in open-eyed exultation without bitterness and without repining, from the first hour to the last."

About the Author:

Joseph Conrad was a Polish novelist who lived most of his life in Britain and didn't learn English until age 21. The young Conrad lived an adventurous life involving gunrunning and political conspiracy, and apparently had a disastrous love affair that plunged him into despair. He served 16 years in the merchant navy.In 1894, at age 36, Conrad reluctantly gave up the sea, partly because of poor health and partly because he had decided on a literary career.

Book Description Marlboro Press,The,U.S., United States, 1988. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. These works are unique in Conrad s oeuvre in being openly autobiographical - but in scope and literary form they differ widely. In The Mirror (1906) Conrad explores his vast knowledge of the sea in an era when the sailing ship gave way, after thousands of years, to steam. A Personal Record (1912) is Conrad s account of himself, his cultural background, and the central motives in his life as a seaman and a writer separated from the country where he was born.This volume presents both works together for the first time in paperback, with texts based on the Dent Collected Edition of 1946.
