Agine a Polish sailor who read Flaubert and the English Bible, who bared his head under equatorial few large stars and related his doings in rhythmic, sonorous, coloured prose; imagine a man from a landlocked country who mid way in his mortal life began writing for the first time and in an alien tongue, and, added to an almost abnormal power of description, possessed the art of laying bare the human soul, not after the meticulous manner of the modern Paul Prys Of psychology, but following the larger method of Flaubert, who believed that actions should translate character 1m agine these paradoxes and you have partly imagined Joseph Conrad, who has so finely said that imagination, and not invention, is the supreme master of art as Of life.
