Sea Stories Typhoon

Free read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free · Joseph Conrad Sea Stories Typhoon Summary ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free In the bestselling Little Black Classics series to celebrate the first ever Penguin Classic in 1946 Each book gives readers a taste of the Classics' huge ran. One of the greatest examples in literature of landscape and nature treated as character Although on one level this classic sea story is about the uneasy relations between the phlegmatic captain and his high strung first mate the antagonist and in many ways the main character is the storm itself This is the disintegrating power of a great wind it isolates one from one s kind An earthuake a landslip an avalanche overtake a man incidentally as it were without passion A furious gale attacks him like a personal enemy tries to grasp his limbs fastens upon his mind seeks to rout his very spirit out of him This is my favorite of Conrad s novels simply because the writing is so strong evoking all the senses you can feel it hear smell and taste the wind and water and of course visualize it in all its shadowy hues while the currents of man versus man and men versus the elements rage around each other like the storm itself At the end I felt like I had to rinse the salt water from my body

Another sea story for me to end the year and the decade I enjoyed this infinitely than Poe s The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket Packed into this short novel is a bit of plot and a lot of characterization together with pleasing prose Several other reviewers mention how well Conrad writes despite English not being his first language Maybe that s why he writes so wellThe men who served under Captain MacWhirr don t think highly of him Generally they think this uiet sober man is a fool When the barometer drops and even MacWhirr knows there s dirty weather ahead they think he knows not a thing They want him to alter course but he is determined to keep to schedule It isn t as if MacWhirr knows what he should do facing such weather it is his first typhoon Hard to imagine that his having been in the South China Sea for several seasons but that s another matter MacWhirr First Mate Jukes and Chief Engineer Rout are all well drawn characters They are flesh and blood on the printed page Conrad also gives us caricatures of their home life and family While these parts lend than a little humor they also add to the characterizations of the seamen The typhoon is also real enough I did hope to like this I have read two previous novels by Conrad one I liked 5 stars worth and one that scraped by at 2 stars This was the decider do I read or let him go in favor of someone else So now my only problem is to find another that I think I can hold on to
