Polish-British adventurer and writer who was famous for his romantic and tragic stories about intrigue and life in Malaya, the Congo and Europe. His novels included "Tales of Unrest," 1898, his famous "Lord Jim," 1900 and "Personal Records," 1912.
Conrad was a delicate child and a high-strung young man who tired easily. In 1890, in the Congo, he became severely ill with fever and dysentery; healed slowly, and for the rest of his life was not entirely well.
On 8/02/1924, his son Borys brought his wife and newborn son Philip to see Conrad at his 18th century home in Kent. Conrad was propped up in bed smoking his usual cigarette. Far into the night he talked with his son, with whom he had a close and loving relationship.
During the night he got out of bed and was sitting in the armchair when he died, 8/03/1924, Bishopsbourne, England.
