Joseph Conrad's Lord Jim (1900) is one of his masterworks. It deals with an individual's fight to escape his past and his efforts to prove his courage to the world after once discrediting himself. Jim's cowardice changes his life forever when he joins a group of officials who flee a sinking ship leaving all the passengers to drown.
