The Rescue

One of Conrad's less familiar tales, this powerfully intense novel provides atmospheric seafaring glimpses of the Malay Archipelago along with a suspenseful plot that builds to an explosive climax. The Rescue is chronologically the first in the author's Lingard trilogy, which includes Almayer's Folly and An Outcast of the Islands, although it appeared years later. Begun in 1896 and published in 1920, just four years before Conrad's death, the novel adds resonance to Conrad's other works on colonialism and imperialism.
