Book Cover of The Shadow-Line

The Shadow-Line

by Joseph Conrad

The Shadow-Line is another one of Conrad’s stories that deals with a hero who is faced by a problem that comes from an unexpected source, and for which he is unprepared. On this occasion, the menace comes not from a storm or an accident or a mutinous crew, but from the very calmness of the sea itself.
