Widely regarded as one of the greatest novels of our time, this book has become a staple of high school and college literature courses. The story is about a young ship's officer who abandons his imperiled vessel and its passengers. He survives to face scorn, his own guilt, and the need for atonement. Conrad's central message about the consequences of straying from personal responsibility is as powerful today as it was nearly a hundred years ago. Students and teachers alike will love this inexpensive, unabridged edition. Author's Note.
