Joseph Conrad was born to Polish parents in 1857. Conrad was orphaned by the age of eleven and was subsequently taught by his uncle, a great influence and mentor. Leaving for Marseilles in 1874, Conrad began his training as a seaman. Conrad joined the British merchant navy and became a British subject in 1886. After his first novel, Almayer's Folly was published in 1895 he left the sea behind and settled down to a life of writing. Troubled financially for many years, he faced uncomplimentary critics and an indifferent public. He finally became a popular success with Chance (1913). By the end of his life on August 3, 1924, his status as one of the great writers of his time was assured.
