Joseph Conrad - Llife and work (4 pagine formato doc)
Joseph Conrad (whose real name was Jozef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski) was born in 1857 in Ukraine, at that time a Polish province under Russian rule. In 1861, Joseph’s father moved to Warsaw, where his house became a clandestine meeting place for underground Polish nationalists. In the same year was arrested and exiled to Russia with his wife and son. Joseph’s mother died soon afterwards and Joseph began to reveal those signs of physical suffering and moody temperament that later will interfere with his work.
