Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. His first novel Almayers Folly is a tale of personal tragedy as well as a broader meditation on the evils of colonialism. Set in the lush jungle of Borneo in the late 1800s, it tells of the Dutch merchant Kaspar Almayer, whose dreams of riches for his beloved daughter, Nina, collapse under the weight of his own greed and prejudice. Conrad established in Almayers Folly the themes of betrayal, isolation, and colonialism that he would explore throughout the rest of his life and work. Portraying a young mans first sea-voyage to the East in Youth, and the blind old age of Captain Whalley in The End of the Tether, the stories in this volume are united in their theme — the Ages of Man — and in their scepticism.

Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. Written at various times, under various influences, these short stories are linked by Conrads treatment of loyalty and betrayal. Typhoon is the story of one unremarkable steamship captain, pitted against a storm of incredible fury. Captain MacWhirr has a reputation as a solid, steadfast man, who "having just enough imagination to carry him through each successive day, and no more" cannot fully believe any storm would be a match for his powerful ship. When the barometer and other clues begin to hint at trouble ahead, he is only moderately concerned and unwilling to change course and lose precious time-a decision that may prove more costly than he could ever have imagined. The tone of other stories in the volume shifts from the pathos of Because of the Dollars to the gothic The Inn of the Two Witches and the grim humour of The Partner. Скрыть Показать весь текст

Торнтон Уайлдер (1897-1975), трехкратный лауреат Пулитцеровской премии, считал целью своего творчества возрождение "религиозного духа" в американской литературе. Критики нередко упрекали его за пренебрежение проблемами современности, но Уайлдер продолжал направлять свой взор исследователя в глубину веков. Обращение к вечным темам и утонченный символизм обеспечили писателю статус признанного классика. .События романа "Мост короля Людовика Святого" (1927) происходят в Перу летом 1714 года. Пятеро путников погибают из-за обрыва моста. Одинокий монах-францисканец, случайно оказавшийся свидетелем катастрофы, усмотрел в этой трагедии божий промысел. Он решает посвятить жизнь поискам ответа на вопрос, почему высшие силы свели вместе этих пятерых, что их объединяло, чем они заслужили такой зловещий финал и только ли их грехами можно объяснить все произошедшее. .
