CHAPTER THREE Meantime the Narcissus, with square yards, ran out of the fair drifted slowly, swinging round and round the compass, through a few days of baffling light airs. Under the patter of short warm showers, grumbling men whirled the heavy yards from side to side; they caught hold of the soaked ropes with groans and sighs, while their officers, sulky and dripping with rain.

The nigger of the Narcissus, for me is definately the best story written about life on a sailing schooner at the end of the 19th century. The description of the rounding of the cape of Good Hope is amazing. The other stories in this book are equally good. This is from an unconditional fan of Joseph Conrad! Highly recommended book.

The book draws on Conrad's own experience of twenty years as a master mariner; the Narcissus is sailing to London with two new hands, Wait and Donkin, and these two test the crew by Wait almost dying, and Donkin by attempting to raise the crew to mutiny. Regarded as Conrad's first masterpiece, the book is a disturbing and powerful portrait of the sea and sea-life. A dying sailor boards the Narcissus and acts as a memento mori upon his shipmates, eliciting pity and selfless compassion as well as fear, resentment, and a profound hatred. The powerful narrative technique captures every nuance of atmospheric tension for a compelling study of men's characters under conditions of extreme danger and stress.
