О книге
«Джозеф Конрад – Almayer’s Folly»

Joseph Conrad’s first novel Almayer’s 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 Almayer’s Folly the themes of betrayal, isolation, and colonialism that he would explore throughout the rest of his life and work.
