  • "In the Malay Archipelago, Axel Heyst, a failed European businessman, rescues a young Englishwoman from a rapacious hotel owner. Fleeing to a remote island, Heyst and the woman are pursued by thugs dispatched by the vengeful hotelier. Written late in his career, Victory (1915) brought Conrad his first popular success."
  • "A mysterious drifter named Axel Heyst rescues a "bad girl" from a seedy tropical hotel and takes her home to Samburan, his own island in the East Indies. Three intruders follow them and bring horror, death, and a strange, haunting victory."
  • ""A la muerte de su padre, Axel Heyst, aristócrata sueco, soñador y solitario, se dedica a vagar por el mundo y acaba como gerente de una explotación minera en Samburan, una remota isla del archipiélago malayo. Aunque el proyecto fracasa, Axel decide permanecer con su criado Wang en la isla. Un día viaja a la vecina Surabaya, en la actual Indonesia, y allí conoce a Lena, que actúa con una "orquesta de señoritas" en un hotel de la isla. Schomberg, el propietario del hotel, un alemán racista y despótico, la acosa para que se convierta en su amante, y Lena huye con Axel a la paradisíaca Samburan.

  • "Le destin d'un de ces héros obscurs chers à l'écrivain anglais, celui de Heyst, un Suédois face à son amour, Lena, une jeune danseuse indonésienne prise dans les griffes d'un hôtelier. Ce roman, paru en 1915, porte un regard critique sur l'exotisme et le colonialisme."
  • "Although Joseph Conrad is now regarded by many critics as one of the most important twentieth-century writers, popular acclaim proved hard for the Polish-born writer to achieve during his lifetime. It was Victory, a psychological thriller of sorts, that finally broke through and helped the writer gain the mass readership his writing deserves."@en

  • ""The present volume contains critical texts of Conrad's novel Victory, An Island Tale and of its two prefaces. The Cambridge text of the novel, apart from the coda to the final chapter, is based on the first revised typescript, held in the Free Library of Philadelphia. The coda to the final chapter, present fragmentarily in the Philadelphia typescript, has the manuscript as its copy-text. The copy-texts are emended to incorporate authorial revisions drawn from earlier and later authoritative documents as well as editorial emendations to correct errors.
