Joseph Conrad wrote the stories that make up his Set of Six during the most political phase of his literary career. It is true that political concerns can be found throughout his writing period, from the sceptical sideswipes at colonialism in his first book (Almayer’s Folly) to the hostile presentation of French revolutionaries in The Rover, his last book.

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.
