Joseph Conrad shows again his genius a man who learned a new language several and excelled in each Now and then we must leave the literature of our Baby and Child Vegetarian Recipes day andelve eeper in time and in literary style Joseph Conrad has survived time as a classic because his work is of classic uality I submerged into Victory as into cool eep water to emerge refreshed and moved by the

this novel is the gift of Conrad s writing Characters haveepth and motion plot is not overwhelming but enough to hold suspense Silver Stirrups (Saddle Club, dialogue is real and revealing Conradoes plenty of tell not show which writers are today admonished not to Different Class do but I loved every moment of the skillful telling He is a master taking on themes and characters that have lasting value I plan to read and reread his other works I read pretty much everything Conrad wrote back in the 80 s but having booked a holiday in Indonesia I had to take one of his far eastern novels Great to read about theead calm Java Sea while looking out over the Short Stories by Roald Dahl dead calm Java Sea Anyway1 No one writes better than Conrad in English Some are as good butifferent Pynchon Dickens even Updike but no one is better2 Only those that haven t read him associate him with adventure books for boys What he is really about is the psychology of life what it takes to be a man the nature of virtue and vice what integrity means how women usally result in something bad happening you know boy s own adventure stuff Otherwise what s going to happen to the Empire and how will you cope with the trenchesBut seriously I m not going to trivially outline the plot because that wouldn t add anything JC is a writer of immense stature and everybody should read him even women who in my experience Goldilocks the Three Bears don t really get him I read Carol Shields now it s your turn Victory by Joseph Conrad is aark psychological thriller Like all of Conrad s work his mastery of the English language is immediately evident and he uses escriptive language of which DH Lawrence would be envious especially when escribing the villains Victory is also reminiscent of Shakespeare s The Tempest and. Once But his life alters when he rescues a young English girl Lena from Zangiacomo's Ladies' Orchestra and the evil innkeeper Schomberg taking her to his island retreat The affair between Heyst and Lena begins with her release but the relationship shifts as Lena. In turn may have influenced Mikhail Bulgakov s The Master and Margarita Conrad created two of the most Socialist Realism devilish animalistic and brutish villains that ever plagued a story and are as bad as characters from Dickey or McCarthy Additionally Victoryisplays some of the most complex characterizations of Conrad s bibliography A careful student of Conrad s work can see shades of Kurtz in Mr Jones As with many of Conrad s writings this I Look Up To... Michelle Obama deals with isolation world weariness andistinctions between civilized and native societies and the ironies of atypical behaviors in each Between the antagonists there is a recurring theme of tame versus untamed actions It seems that fans of Conrad generally fall into two camps those who choose as their favorite Heart of Darkness and those who would select Lord Jim I am Doctor Extraño definitively in the Heart of Darkness group though I recognize the power of Lord Jim F Scott Fitzgerald said of Nostromo that if he could have written but one book he would have wanted that book to be Nostromo Victory though iteals with many common themes of Conrad s work is a uniue work in his canon and has a charm all its own and I could see where someone could say that it is his or her favorite What is this for story I have completed it and I still o not know Is it a tale of adventure If that is what Conrad meant it to be it moves too slowly All of the action takes place at the end Is it a romance a love story It cannot be classified as such either The characters are too aloof too lukewarm toward each other Is it meant to be a character study Perhaps but I felt not a thing toward any of the characters neither the primary nor the secondary ones An attachment evelops between the expatriate London raised Swede Axel Heyst and Lena an orphaned and Never Tell destitute fiddle player Axel lives as a hermit on a small island in the Java Sea where he had been manager of a coal company which has gone bust Lena is one of an eighteen strong women s orchestra mistreated and bullied by the group s owner and conductor They are shipped from port to port as cattle as things at the whim of their boss They are to please the men at the shows Now they are playing at a hotel in Surabaya on Java which was at this time a Dutch colony The story covers the period from October 1912 to 1914 These are the two central characters The story evolves around them but Ioubt any reader will care a fig for either There are a handful of secondary characters a hotel keeper named Schomberg and a trio of three scoundrels who visit the hotel It is at this hotel whe I enjoyed this novel from the pen of Joseph Conrad it may be my favorite of his works although Conrad has the knack for writing consistently good novels that makes it hard to rank them Victory s most striking formal characteristic is its shifting narrative and temporal perspective with the first section from the viewpoint of a sailor the second from omniscient perspective of Axel Heyst the third from an interior perspective from Heyst and the final section I found the character of Axel interesting primarily ue to his complexity On a superficial LEVEL THE NOVEL READS LIKE A MELODRAMA SUITED TO the novel reads like a melodrama suited to muddled *opera libretto than a serious work of literature But upon reflection the allegorical psychological implications *libretto than a serious work of literature But upon reflection the allegorical and implications the action landscape and narrative structure redeem it as a modern novel worthy to be included with the best of Conrad I am always impressed when the author can make a serious work of literature appear on the surface to be merely a good story eg Moby Dick The story line follows through a business misadventure the European Axel Heyst ends up living on an island in what is now Indonesia with a Chinese assistant Wang Heyst visits a nearby island when a female band is playing at a hotel owned by Mr Schomberg Schomberg attempts to force himself sexually on one of the band members Alma later called Lena She flees with Heyst back to his island and they become lovers Schomberg seeks revenge by attempting to frame Heyst for the murder of a man who had ied of natural causes and later by sending three Deterring Democracy desperadoes Pedro Martin Ricardo and Mr Jones to Heyst s island with a lie about treasure hidden on the island The ensuing conflictoes not end well and has been compared to the ending of an Elizabethan Comet in Moominland (The Moomins, drama where the stage is littered with corpses The robust romanticism of Axel and Lena s story continues to haunt the reader long after one puts the novelownAnother of my favorite writers Joan Didion had this to say about VictoryI often reread Victory which is maybe my favorite book in the world The story is told thirdhand It s not a story the narrator even heard from someone who experienced it The narrator seems to have heard it from people he runs into around the Malacca Strait So there s this fantastic Hunters Heart distancing of the narrative except that when you re in the middle of it it remains very immediate It s incredibly skillful I have never started a novel I mean except the first when I was starting a novel just to start a novel I ve never written one without rereading Victory It opens up the possibilities of a novel It makes it seem worthoing From a 2006 interview in The Paris Review From BBC Radio 4 DramaThe world premiere of Harold Pinter s screenplay of Josef Conrad s last major novel in a special adaptation for radio by Sir Richard EyreIt s 1900

the night they escape by boat to his islandSound Design John Leonard and Wilfredo AcostaDirector Richard EyreNarrator Simon Russell Beal. Struggles to save Heyst from theetachment and isolation that have inhibited and influenced his lifeMarked by a violent and tragic conclusion Victory is both a tale of rescue and adventure and a perceptive study of a complex relationship and of the power of love. ,

My victory over Victory by Joseph Conrad was last gasp and hard fought Unfortunately I am not going to build any triumphal arches to commemorate itI feel like a veteran For a few weeks I have been bombarded with boredom Stabbed with a bayonet of Mr Majeika and the School Inspector disappointment Outflanked by the characters Iidn t care about Shot with conversations which led nowhere To cut a long story short Victory turned out to be almost a Selected Poems defeat Itoesn t comfort me much to realize that one of my brothers in arms was Vladimir Nabokov who almost fell in the field of glory too He felt irritated by souvenir shop style and bottled ships and shell necklaces of romanticist cliches in Victory Mind you I m not a recruit It was the fourth novel by Conrad I ve read after Lord Jim Heart of Darkness and Almayer s Folly All of them were masterpieces each in its uniue way I have been always impressed by Conrad s style his ability to epict far away places and express moral ilemmas The uality of writing in Victory is exuisite too which sadly can t be told about the rest though the novel operates on an interesting premise Malay Archipelago between Java and Borneo a girl stolen out of orchestra romance solitude shade and gloomy silence Mostly solitudeIf we could Doctor Strange, Vol. 2 distil the beauty of Conrad s language of hisescriptions and observations it would taste like nectar of the gods I m astonished every time I realize that Joseph Conrad was Polish and started to learn English in his twentiesChances are my musings are being read now by somebody who is about to start his or her literary acuaintance with Joseph Conrad I m begging you on my knees on t begin with Victory This novel may give you a false image of the truly wonderful writer Have it for an eccentric exotic essert which will accentuate the taste of the nourishing main The Train Robbers dishes you ve had before Conrad himself seemed to be a bit embarrassed by this novel You will sense it for yourself while reading his preface By the way if you are a literary kamikaze andecide to embark on Victory anyway please No Reason To Die don t read the introduction before the novel as it reveals too much I was a literary kamikaze myself Orsodimondo whoseazzling review was my inspiration warned me that this is not Conrad s best novel Moreover Orsodimondo s three stars twinkled alarmingly but I was so Naked Risk (Shatterproof determined to experience the author s sense of humour and see the portrait of woman soifferent from his other female characters It looked as if Conrad took into consideration some complaints of his readers and critics As if they approached him and said Look Mr Conrad You write great books we like them a lot except for two things they are utterly Raking The Ashes depressing and misogynistic Could you pleaseo something about that This is of course an imagined situation and its possibility is less than scarce But I had the impression that Conrad was Ellie (Ellie, doing his best to fulfil such a reuest There are sparkles of humour in Victory indeed What an impenetrable girl you are Lena with those grey eyes of yours Windows of the soul as some poet has said The fellow must have been a glazier by vocation Nevertheless I found the overall impressionevastating The humour exists but only on the surface Conrad s ironical remarks are like rare fireflies in complete arkness Darkness as black remarks are like rare fireflies in complete arkness Darkness as black the Thomas Harriott dress Lena had to wear to be invisible in the forestAs for women Alma alias Lena isefinitely the most profound and complex female character I have encountered in Conrad s novels so far but I m afraid nowadays some readers might get slightly infuriated with excerpts like Women can A Mistletoe Kiss deceive men so completely The faculty was inherent in them they seemed to be created with a special aptitude I appreciate Conrad s attempt at a ambitious literary form Victory resembles two other genres a parable with a clear moral and a melodramatic love story The contrast between them is an abyss and being constantly stretched over it I wasn t having the time of my lifeWill I read anything by Joseph Conrad after Pyrrhic Victory Time will tell but I m willing to take the risk My wounds weren t mortal after all If you feel like reading a complex psychological novel that will make you ponder the meaning of life this is a book for you Not that you will be provided with anyefinite answers mind you Victory strikes me as a rather ambiguous work one that is intentionally left open to interpretations Conseuently if you like clear uestions and Although Intimate Strangers dreamlike this was aelicious journey through the Mr Majeika and the Lost Spell Book dilemmas of existence and fate I started this novel with no expectations as I often have recoiled from Conrad s works in the past However after reading his The Secret Sharer and Falk A Reminiscence recently I had become a bit curious His language isifferent in its swirls and syntax at the same time as he attempts to The Hidden Jewels describe layers of the psychology of his characters intertwined with the pulsations of nature It is charming in its own uniue way Theestinies of the Swede Heyst and Lena unfold in conjunction with the waves wind the blazing heat of the tropics and the seemingly majestic force of the trees plants and insects Surrounding Them Human Lives them Human lives to matter less in this almost eternal setting of nature but Conrad yet attempts to focus on the patterns of existence and motivation as Chaplin different lives intersect The I read the curious I became about Joseph Conrad as he seemingly occupies his own uniue niche with his writing style as well as themes As the pages unfolded I became engaged and appreciated the novel and Is this work about love fate or civilization and itsiscontents Or perhaps a combination of all and ultimately a reflection of aspects of our of all and ultimately a reflection of aspects of our inner lives and Fair Game dreams Stellar Axel Heyst the Swede is running away but since it is himself he wants to escape from that is clearly an unattainable goal Growing up with his crank of a father a widower in London Town the elder Heyst writes little books of his unpopular philosophy making a small profit from the few who like them and just gets by Having fled his native land theyidn t understand the Baron s unusual ideas not. Axel Heyst a The Creatures dreamer and a restlessrifter believes he can avoid suffering by cutting himself off from others Then he becomes involved in the operation of a coal company on a remote island in the Malay Archipelago and when it fails he turns his back on humanity.
