  • "Joseph Conrad's second novel follows the downfall of Peter Willems, a disreputable man who attempts to find refuge from a scandal in a native village."@en
  • "Peter Willems, a clerk in Macassar, granted a second chance at a remote river trading post, falls ever more hopelessly into traps set by himself and others. The pawn of Babalatchi, the one-eyed schemer of power politics, and of the rich Abdulla, who uses Willems to increase his own wealth, his fate is sealed by his lover, Aissa, and by Almayer, an embittered fellow countryman. An Outcast of the Islands (1896), Conrad's second novel, is a tale of intrigue in which love and death are the major players. It is a parable of human frailty -- the story of a man unable to understand others and fated never to possess his own soul. This revised edition uses the English first edition text and has a new chronology and bibliography. - Back cover."
  • "Peter Willems's life enters a downward spiral when he is caught and, despite his motives, subsequently dismissed for embezzling from his employer. Saved from financial ruin once again by his benefactor, Captain Lingard, Willems finds himself at another post, and facing similar problems when he finds it difficult to work Almayer, the outpost's chief. Willems's life becomes even further complicated when he falls in love with Aissa, a young, local woman. An Outcast of the Islands is Joseph Conrad's second novel, and in addition to featuring characters and events he introduced in his first book, Almayer's Folly, deals with many of the same themes that Conrad also explores in his later works, Nostromo, and Heart of Darkness. A third novel, The Rescue, published in 1920, makes up the loose trilogy. An Outcast of the Islands was adapted for film in 1951.

  • "Román, který vyšel poprvé r. 1896, zavádí na malajské souostroví v době boje koloniálních velmocí o moc a na příběhu mladého bezcharakterního úředníka, žijícího pod patronací obávaného anglického kapitána, vytváří působivýobrazprostředí a doby."
  • "When Willems stepped off the straight and narrow path of his own peculiar honesty he thought it would be a short episode - a sentence in brackets, so to speak - in the flowing tale of his life. But Willems was wrong, for he was about to embark on a voyage of discovery and self-discovery that would change, if not destroy, the reset of his life. Marooned by his own people on the shore of a Malayan island, Willems is caught in the grip of his own vulnerability and corruption. An Outcast of the Islands was only Conrad's se."@en
  • "An Outcast of the Islands is Joseph Conrad's second novel, first published in 1896 and inspired by Conrad's time as mate of the steamer The Vigar. Fleeing from scandal in Singapore, the disreputable Peter Willems hides out in a native village, only to betray his protectors in his lust for the daughter of the chief. The story features Tom Lingard and other characters who are also in Conrad's Almayer's Folly of 1895 and The Rescue of 1920."@en
  • "The novel details the undoing of Peter Willems, a disreputable, immoral man who, on the run from a scandal in Makassar, finds refuge in a hidden native village, only to betray his benefactors over lust for the tribal chief's daughter.--From Wikipedia."
  • "An Outcast of the Islands (1896), Conrad's second novel, is a tale of intrigue in an eastern setting.
