Joseph Conrad, 1857-1924, born in Ukraine of Polish nobility as Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, moved to England early in his life. Fascinated by the sea, he spent many years as a sailor with the Merchant Marines. The memories of his voyages provided background for his works written in his adopted language, English. He is best known for "Heart of Darkness," the inspiration behind the film 'Apocalyspe Now,' but his other works include masterpieces like "Nostromo," "Typhoon," "Lord Jim," "The Nigger of the Narcissus," "Youth," and "Almayer's Folly." His anti-heroes and psychological realism influenced modern writers who followed him.
