Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. Victory features Axel Heyst, a dreamer and a restless drifter, who believes he can avoid suffering by cutting himself off from others. Then he becomes involved in the operation of a coal company on a remote island in the Malay Archipelago, and when it fails he turns his back on humanity. But his life alters when he rescues a young English girl, Lena, from Zangiacomo's Ladies' Orchestra and the evil innkeeper Schomberg, taking her to his island retreat. Victory is both a tale of rescue and adventure and a perceptive study of a complex relationship and of the power of love.
