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:

    There is something haunting in the light of the moon; it has all the dispassionateness of a disembodied soul, and something of its inconceivable mystery.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    The revolutionary spirit is mighty convenient in this, that it frees one from all scruples as regards ideas. Its hard absolute optimism is repulsive to my mind by the menace of fanaticism and intolerance it contains. No doubt one should smile at these things; but, imperfect Esthete, I am no better Philosopher. All claim to special righteousness awakens in me that scorn and anger from which a philosophical mind should be free.
    —Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)
