Joseph Conrad was a Polish novelist. Many critics regard him as one of the greatest novelists in the English languageā€”a fact that is remarkable as he did not learn to speak English fluently until he was in his twenties .

Conrad is recognized as a master prose stylist. Some of his works have a strain of romanticism, but more importantly he is recognized as an important forerunner of modernist literature. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many writers, including Ernest Hemingway, D. H. Lawrence, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Graham Greene, William S. Burroughs, Joseph Heller, V.S. Naipaul and John Maxwell Coetzee.
