A Guy Called Joe


Author Joseph Conrad born in the Ukraine this day in 1857; his birthplace was once part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Before he came to England, he had a career in the merchant navy; this is reflected in the strong nautical content of many of his works. His most famous works include The Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, and Nostromo.
