Happy 150th ...

... to Joseph Conrad. (Hat tip, Dave Lull,)

See also The moral agent.

I think J.B. Priestley got it right when he described Conrad as "the novelist of lonely men who find themselves hard-pressed and try to do their duty, of unfamiliar and unfashionable heroes who, with some tragic exceptions, are genuinely heroic."
