This immortal novel of the sea tells the story of a British sailor haunted by a single youthful act of cowardly betrayal. To the white men in Bombay, Calcutta, and Rangoon, Jim is a man of mystery. To the primitive natives deep in the Malayan jungle, he is a god gifted with supernatural powers. To the beautiful half-caste girl who flees to his hut for protection, he is a lord to be feared and loved. Lord Jim—Conrad’s classic portrait of a man’s guilt, his search for forgiveness, and his final, tragic redemption—is a work of enduring value and one of the world’s great masterpieces.
