This masterly character study of human transformation, written by Joseph Conrad (1857–1924) during the First World War, chronicles a youth’s passage into manhood upon becoming the commander of his first ship. In this poignant tale of maturation, Conrad explores the initiation of this transitional occurrence and delivers a portrait of physical and psychic exile; sensory disorientation; and the final crossover toward a new identity. With realism born of firsthand knowledge of the seafaring life, Conrad delivers an intense evocation of his own first command aboard the ship Otago, which he took on when the previous captain died en route to Bangkok.
