Reviews of : Youth by Joseph Conrad PDF Book
Inside this Book – I was expecting to have to wait in line for a lecture (by sculptor Richard Serra), I hate to waste time, I hate to hold heavy books in my lap, so I grabbed this Penguin 60 off my self to pass the time. Reading this, I realized that male psychology hasn’t changed much in a century. Conrad expresses basic male heroic yearnings, youthful enthusiasms and a poignant understanding of their eventual decline that seems as valid today as when they were written. I also wondered if there is a relationship between specialized lingos and the development of the novel. Conrad, Melville, and Twain write about seamanship and use the language of seamanship in a casual way–as if we should know what all these terms mean. How many people wrote novels after having lived adventurous youths? Is this a 19th century thing?
Inside this book –Youth PDF Book by Joseph Conrad – Youth is about middle age; about the time when the “glow in the heart” dims and we look back in awe at the boundless faith of our early years. Like Heart of Darkness, it’s narrated by Charles Marlow. And like Heart of Darkness, it’s absolutely stunning, an unforgettable story, a book I will return to again and again. Over a bottle of wine with friends, Marlow tells the tale of his disastrous first sea voyage to the East. Storms, collisions and explosions beset his vessel. Whatever can go wrong, does go wrong. Yet Marlow, now in his forties, remembers the journey with great happiness, as “the best time”, a time when he felt indestructible, immortal, when he believed he “could last forever, outlast the sea, the earth, and all men”.
