Inside this book –Some Reminiscences PDF Book by Joseph Conrad – Chapter 1 recalls his first attempts at Almayer’s Folly which he wrote mostly at sea. His first reader was a passenger on his ship who dies a few weeks later. There are some recollections of early life including the often quoted passage when he was nine year old and looked at a map of Africa and pointed to the blank space and said “When I grow up I shall go there.” (p. 17) Chapter 2 has more autobiographical recollections of his youth until about the time he ventures out West. He travels to Switzerland earlier where he hears English for the first time from some tourists. Chapter 3 is a rather interesting recounting of Conrad’s family history going back a couple of generations from the time of Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow in which his Conrad’s great-uncle participated to the failed Revolution of 1963. There are some fascinating descriptions of scenes involving a Cossack and peasant raid and harsh criticism by Conrad of both Napoleon and Russian imperialism. Chapter 4 is about the real Almayer.
