Introduction and Notes by Susan Jones, St Hilda’s College, Oxford.
First published in 1900, Lord Jim established Conrad as one of the great storytellers of the twentieth century. Set in the Malay Archipelago, the novel not only provides a gripping account of maritime adventure and romance, but also an exotic tale of the East. Its themes also challenge the conventions of nineteenth-century adventure fiction, confirming Conrad’s place in literature as one of the first ‘modernists’ of English letters.
Lord Jim explores the dilemmas of conscience, of moral isolation, of loyalty and betrayal confronting a sensitive individual whose romantic quest for an honourable ideal are tested to the limit. In this novel, Conrad draws on his background as Polish emigre, as well as his first-hand experience as a seaman, to experiment radically with the presentation of human frailty and doubt in the modern world.
An early and primary event in the story is the abandonment of a passenger ship in distress by its crew, including a young British seaman named Jim.
Directed by Richard Brooks. With Peter O'Toole, James Mason, Curd Jürgens, Eli Wallach.
After being discredited as a coward, a 19th century seaman lives for only one purpose: to redeem himself.
Lord Jim is a 1965 British-American adventure film made by Columbia Pictures in Super Panavision. The picture was produced and directed by Richard Brooks with Jules Buck and Peter O'Toole as associate producers, from a screenplay by Brooks.
