Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item
In Victory (1915), Conrad returns to the Malay Archipelago, to the setting of his first mature novel, Lord Jim, and in Axel Heyst he creates a hero who is in many ways similar to Jim, a noble altruist destroyed by his ideals. It is a story of action and high adventure coexisting with an exhaustive study of the psychology of a man who's philosophy of life is summed up in the dying words of his father: "Look on -- make no sound."
