This work is Conrad’s first novel. It examines life at the crux of a cultural crossroad. Almayer, who is a Dutch trader stranded in Sambir up a river, finds himself in a world of cultures old and new. This novel explores colonialism and marks the initial appearance of Conrad’s fictional technique. His illustration of the conception of human life makes him a key figure in the evolution and achievement of literary modernism.
