  • "The story of a young and inexperienced sea captain whose first command finds him with a ship becalmed in tropical seas and a crew smitten with fever. As he wrestles with his conscience and with the sense of isolation that his position imposes, the captain crosses the "shadow-line" between youth and adulthood."
  • "The Shadow-Line is a poignant and beautiful story. Written during the First World War it expresses Conrad's solidarity with all who were obliged to cross in early youth the shadow-line of their war-torn generation."@en
  • "A young sea captain's first command brings with it a succession of crises: his sea is becalmed, the crew laid low by fever, and his deranged first mate is convinced that the ship is haunted by the malignant spirit of a previous captain."
  • "This semi-autobiographical novel by Conrad marked his return later in his career to the themes and settings of his early works. A young captain's first command brings him aboard a seemingly cursed or haunted ship, which quickly becomes becalmed, leading to the psychological breakdown of the first mate and rising tensions among the crew."
  • ""The Shadow Line" is a short novel by Joseph Conrad (1857-1924). It was first published in 1916. It is a sea tale and depicts the story of a young man who takes a captaincy in the Orient."@en
  • "The masterpiece of Joseph Conrad's later years, the autobiographical short novel The Shadow-Line depicts a young man at a crossroads in his life, facing a desperate crisis that marks the "shadow-line" between youth and maturity. This brief but intense story is a dramatically fictionalized account of Conrad's first command as a young sea captain trapped aboard a becalmed, fever-wracked, and seemingly haunted ship. With no wind in sight and his crew disabled by malaria, the narrator discovers that the medicine necessary to save the sick men is missing and its absence has been deliberately concealed. Meanwhile, his increasingly frightened first mate is convinced that the malignant ghost of the previous captain has cursed them. Suspenseful, atmospheric, and deceptively simple, Conrad's tale of the sea reflects the complex themes of his most famous novels, Lord Jim and Heart of Darkness. From the Trade Paperback edition."@en

  • "Written in 1915, The Shadow-Line is based upon events and experiences from twenty-seven years earlier, to which Conrad returned obsessively in his fiction. A young sea-captain faces a succession of crises on his first command, for which he feels himself responsible. The novel is a work full of 'sudden passions', as well as a penetrating analysis of the nature of manhood. - ;'A sudden passion of anxious impatience rushed through my veins and gave me such a sense of the intensity of existence as I have never felt before or since.'link title to catalogue entry](exact date?)Written in 1915, The Sh."@en
