Back from the Congo, sensitive to the tensions between 'civilisation' and 'savagery', Conrad enjoys publication of his first novel. Then life at sea comes to an end.
The story of Joseph Conrad, abridged by Katrin Williams. He was author of Heart Of Darkness, Lord Jim, and sailed the seas..
4. Recollections of the Congo endure, as does his correspondence with Marguerite. He meets Emilie Briquel, yet marries Jessie George. He produces various work at this time, yet those African memories are indelible and Heart Of Darkness will get written.
