Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical; historical; and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. With Lord Jim; first published in 1900; Joseph Conrad transformed a tale of seafaring adventure into a subtle study of the meaning of honor and courage; loyalty and betrayal. When Jim; an idealistic merchant seaman and ship’s officer; abandons the supposedly sinking Patna and its passengers; he dashes his youthful dreams of glory in a single stroke. Condemned in court for his impetuous act of cowardice; Jim relegates himself to a life roaming the Far East. Unforgettably told by Marlow; who also narrates Conrad’s Heart of Darkness; the story of Lord Jim plumbs the mysteries of a man renounced by society but driven by a desire for redemption. A. Michael Matin is a professor in the English Department of Warren Wilson College in Asheville; North Carolina. He has published articles on various twentieth-century British and postcolonial writers; and has written the introduction and notes for the Barnes & Noble Classics edition of Heart of Darkness and Selected Short Fiction by Joseph Conrad.
