Publish Date : Saturday 13 July 2013 - 10:04
‘The Rescue’, a novel written by Polish-born British novelist Joseph Conrad and translated by Kiomars Parsay, has been reprinted in Iran.
The 2nd print of ‘The Rescue’ has been published in Iran after 12 years.
‘The Rescue’ is a novel by Joseph Conrad, published in 1920 but begun in the 1890s and set aside by Conrad to write ‘The Nigger of the Narcissus’.
The novel concluded what is sometimes referred to as "The Lingard Trilogy", a group of novels based on Conrad's experience as mate on the steamer, Vidar. Although it is the last of the three novels to be published, after ‘Almayer's Folly’ (1895) and ‘An Outcast of the Islands’ (1896), the events related in the novel precede those.
Joseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski; 3 December 1857 – 3 August 1924) was a Polish-born British novelist, who became a British subject in 1886.
He is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and then always with a marked Polish accent). He wrote stories and novels, predominantly with a nautical or seaboard setting that depict trials of the human spirit by the demands of duty and honor.
On 3 August 1924, Conrad died of a heart attack.
The Persian translation of ‘The Rescue’ has been reprinted in 496 pages by Kolbe Publications.
