The Shadow Line - The Original Classic Edition, written by Mr Joseph Conrad has been published in the English language.

The Shadow Line is a short story based at sea by Joseph Conrad. This is one of Joseph's later works, being published in 1917. The novel depicts the development of a young man upon taking a captaincy in the Orient, with the shadow line of the title representing the threshold of this development. In the story the young man is never named but he is referred to as 'young' and the rest of his crew on board the Orient is known as the 'old'. Mr Conrad always has a common theme with in his books, being the sea. But this book also recognises the nature of wisdom, experience and maturity displayed by the main character.

There is evidence that the novel is a metaphor of the First World War, given the timing of the publication (1917). Also references to a long struggle that the newly appointed captain goes through, also the importance of camaraderie. This viewpoint may also be reinforced by the knowledge that Conrad's son, Boris, was wounded in his second year in the First World War.

Joseph Conrad was a Polish British novelist, who became a British subject in 1886 after fleeing his home country of Ukraine, Russia. He was regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, even though it was his second language. He wrote stories and novels, predominantly with a nautical or seaboard setting, with a common theme being the human spirit by the demands of duty and honour. He was a very impressionable man with many talents for writing.
