Joseph Conrad was born Jozef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski in Russian-occupied Poland in 1857. His parents were aristocrats and intensely nationalistic political activists. By the age of 12 he had lost both to tuberculosis and was raised by an uncle. In 1874 the teenager left for Marseilles, where he began sailing for the French merchant service. Four years later he fled to England with little English, but earned his master's certificate and became a British national.

He began writing in English and many of his first stories are related to his experiences at sea in many different parts of the world. His first published work in 1895 was ALMAYER'S FOLLY for which his publisher chose the anglicized version of his Polish name. In 1896 he married Jessie George; they had two sons, Borys in 1898 and John in 1906. Although plagued by physical illness and psychological problems, Conrad had one of the most formidable bodies of work in the English language. He died in 1924.
