Of Polish parentage, Conrad became a seaman, and voyaged widely in the East, the setting for many of his most famous novels. He became a British subject in 1886, settled in England in 1894 and devoted himself to literature. He slowly established himself as one of the greatest of all English-speaking novelists, with Lord Jim (1900), Nostromo (1904), and Under Western Eyes (1911).
