In his autobiographical novel, The mirror of the Sea, Conrad muses on his twenty years' sea-faring career. While philosophizing on the sea, the author records his personal anecdotes as a sailor and ships officer and refers to the various personalities from his past. An unreserved account of his profoundly personal life is honestly depicted. A realistic and an atypical memoir!
