About The Book

These five stories were collected and published as Tales of Unrest in 1898, shortlybefore Heart of Darkness, the first of Conrad's major novels. Ranging from the farawayand unfamiliar, where the acquisitiveness of colonial adventure is damningly exposed,to an ostensibly ordinary London household, these disparate tales display Conrad'sability to explore and lay bare human nature.

Set in Central Africa, 'An Outpost of Progress' is suffused with irony and represents aruthlessly mocking viewof European imperialism. 'Karain' and 'The Lagoon' are exotictales of the Malay Archipelago, with the former telling of disharmony and discordbetween Western traders and the indigenous inhabitants. 'The Return' recounts thestory of, in the author's own words, "a desirable middleclass town residence whichsomehowmanages to produce a sinister effect". The collection also includes 'TheIdiots', the first of Conrad's short stories to be serialized in an English magazine.
