An outcast of the islands : Almayerʹs folly : a story of an Eastern River

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.

  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "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."
