- Conrad Joseph Tales of Hearsay & Unrest. Volume 12
Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. The Tales of Hearsay is a posthumous collection of four stories, published in 1911, the year after Conrad died, including The Tale, considered to be the one of his best short stories. Tales of Unrest is the collection of short stories where a reader will find many of Conrads most frequently explored themes: isolation, distinctions between East and West, between colonial and native, a discernment and critique of civilization.
