Joseph Conrad Short Biography

Polish-born English novelist Joseph Conrad (3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924) is one of the great modern writers of England who was concerned with men under stress, deprived of the ordinary supports of civilized life and forced to confront the mystery of human individuality. He was granted British nationality in 1886, but always considered himself a Pole. He has been increasingly regarded as one of the greatest English novelists.
