Editorial Reviews

In most of his writings, Jospeh Conrad's viewpoint is pessimistic, his character development masterly, and his prose rich, sometimes florid. Although the chronology of his novels is often confusing, his narrative style nonetheless conveys mystery and suspense.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jeffery Mingo on June 29, 2007
This work discusses how Conrad used his seafaring experience to later write novels. We learn how a Polish-born individual becomes a writer publishing works in the English language.

This work has moving images, both old and reenacted, to keep the viewer's interest. Other works speak mostly of author's lives and little of the writing that made them famous. This work is filled with someone reading quotes from Conrad. Did the creators want to jazz things up or if they had little biographical info on Conrad and had to work with scraps? I'm not sure.

When I read "Heart of Darkness" in a high school English class, his other books were never brought up. Like Whitman's "Leaves of Grass" and Ellison's "Invisible Man," I assumed "Hearts" was Conrad's only work. This documentary shows that Conrad wrote much more and mentions little about "Hearts."

Though Conrad was a naturalized British citizen, the work says his books were better received in America than in the United Kingdom. Though Herman Melville's name never comes up, I couldn't help but think of "Moby Dick" was I was watching this.

Your basic educational film as part of the "Great Writers" series on Joseph Conrad. Conrad is my friend's favorite author and I couldn't buy her any books, even biographies, that she doesn't already have, so I opted for this... Basically the cursory info, again general educational material.
