Sample text

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned and have not love, it profiteth me nothing. com Conrad, in most of his later works, chose his last word with great care. The word nothing at the end of Victory signifies exactly what it does in the Scripture verses above. The final end of all life without love is NOTHING. CHARACTER ANALYSES AXEL HEYST How does he appear to others? At the time the story begins, Heyst is about thirty-five years old. The last vestiges of youth are gone from his face.

He seems to have lost his reason. Heyst sees that he could, at this moment, overpower Jones, but his life-long habit of passivity prevents, and he feels nearer death this moment than at any time since he entered the room. Jones curses himself for a fool: "He knew. " He insists that Heyst go with him over to Heyst's bungalow to see what Ricardo is doing. The bungalow is ablaze with light. Jones asks Heyst if he minds Ricardo ransacking his house, and Heyst says he doesn't. " Jones asks. "I have placed her in safety," Heyst answers.

Schomberg's first meeting with the three villains in Sourabaya harbor. The scene where Jones and Ricardo force Schomberg to grant gambling privileges of his concert hall. Schomberg's long scene in the billiards room which ends in the hotelkeeper directing the three scoundrels to Samburan. The arrival of the three villains on Samburan. Ricardo's vicious attack on Lena. The scene before Wang's stockade. The climax scene. Sentences, Paragraphs, and Punctuation Departing from the rather ponderous style of his early work, Conrad's paragraphing and sentence structure in Victory are more in line with modern novels.
