Synopsis: The main deck was dark aft but halfway from forward through the open doors of the forecastle two streaks of brilliant light cut the shadow of the quiet night that lay upon the ship. A hum of voices was heard there while port and starboard in the illuminated doorways silhouettes of moving men appeared for a moment very black without relief like figures cut out of sheet tin.' (Excerpt from Chapter 1)

About the Author: Der Autor Joseph Conrad (eigentlich Josef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski) wurde am 3.12.1857 als Sohn polnischer Landedelleute in Berdiczew bei Kiew geboren. Er besuchte das Gymnasium in Krakau und ging mit siebzehn Jahren nach Marseille, um Seemann zu werden. Als britischer Kapitän befuhr er die Weltmeere und bereiste den Kongo und die Malaiischen Inseln, Schauplätze seiner späteren Romane. Schon als Seeoffizier begann er zu schreiben. Als ein tropisches Fieber ihn zwang, den Seemannsberuf aufzugeben, ließ er sich 1894 als freier Schriftsteller in England nieder. In den folgenden dreißig Jahren entstanden - oft unter großer materieller Not - die berühmten Romane und Geschichten dieses Autors, der, obwohl er die englische Sprache erst als Erwachsener erlernte, zu den großen Meistern der englischen Literatur zählt. Er starb am 3.8.1924 in seinem Landhaus in Bishopbourne/Kent.
