Joseph Conrad

Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad ‪Nałęcz‬ Korzeniowski; 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924) was a Polish author who wrote in English, after settling in England. He was granted British nationality at age 28 in 1886. However, he always considered himself a Pole and resented being classed by some critics, such as his friend Edward Garnett and his enthusiastic admirer H.L. Mencken, with Russian novelists as a "Slavonic" writer.

Famous quotes containing the words joseph conrad and/or conrad:

    The sea—this truth must be confessed—has no generosity. No display of manly qualities—courage, hardihood, endurance, faithfulness—has ever been known to touch its irresponsible consciousness of power.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    It’s extraordinary how we go through life with eyes half shut, with dull ears, with dormant thoughts. Perhaps it’s just as well; and it may be that it is this very dullness that makes life to the incalculable majority so supportable and so welcome.
    —Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)
