He have been in Polish in exile, and having experience of working with revolutionists and espionage agents in Switzerland and Marseilles, Conrad is well-educated, sophisticated, intelligent, and talented to be familiar with the tactics and rationalizations used by political agitators and terrorists. Furthermore, he had become tantalized with the twilight world of international political activity in London.
Writer Joseph Conrad was born on December 3, 1857 in Berdichev (now Berdychiv), Ukraine. His parents, Apollo and Evelina Korzeniowski, were members of the Polish noble class.

My astronaut's name is Charles "Pete" Conrad. There are some interesting things about this astronaut to me. First of all, his birthday is on June 2 while mines is on June 3 which is pretty funny. Now lets get into he serious information. He has gone into flying time for more than 6,500 hours, which is about 270 days. Can you believe that! Well in all, Pete Conrad was a very good astronaut. He went on many missions including Project Gemini which he had set the record of space endurance for 8 days. He was also the captain for Project Gemini. The last mission he was on was Skylab. The station had been damaged but luckily his crew had fixed it quickly. Sadly Conrad died on July 8, 1999. He had lived a good life and shared it with his four sons
Another major contributor to the different attitudes of Paton and Conrad is the places they grew up. Joseph Conrad was born in Poland, a predominantly white area, whereas Paton was born in South Africa. As opposed to the selfish, fearful concern that Conrad felt for his own people, Paton had true concern for the native tribes of Africa. Alan
What is reality? Did the past you remember actually happen? Can you exist in two realities at once? Are you who you think you are? Through his work, science fiction author Philip K. Dick implies that we will all be asking such questions soon. For Dick, reality is just one of his layers. All of his novels combined together accurately predicted the world we are in now.
Heart of Darkness written by Joseph Conrad is dramatic tale of an arduous trek into the darkest part of Africa at the turn of the twentieth century. The story follows the protagonist Marlow, an English marine merchant, as he travels through the African jungle up the Congo river in search for a mysterious man named Kurtz. Through Marlow's narration, Conrad provides a searing indictment of European colonial exploitation inflicted upon African natives. Through his use of irony, characters, and symbolism in the novel, Conrad aims to unveil the underlying horrors of colonialism. By shedding light on the brutality of colonialism in Heart of Darkness, Conrad shows that European values have been irrevocably eclipsed by darkness.
Joseph Conrad was born on December 3, 1857 and educated primarily in Poland. After a career at sea in the French and British waters, he wrote short stories and books like Lord Jim, Heart of Darkness and The Secret Agent. His short stories and books were mostly about his experiences in remote places with an interest in the dark side of human nature. ().
The protagonist Marlow believes that: “the mind of man is capable of anything-because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future” (109). The basis of Heart of Darkness is Marlow's physical journey up the congo river to meet Kurtz. The main character Marlow goes through many physical and psycological changes from the beginning to the end of the story. In the beginning, Marlow is fairly innocent as he goes up the river, he gets closer and closer to Kurtz, and he moves closer and closer he learns more and more about the hearts of men and the darkness. When he eventually reaches Kurtz, Marlow's perception is obstructed and he physically and psychologically, does not know where he is.
Cormac McCarthy was born in Rhode Island on July 20, 1933. He is the third of six children (the eldest son) born to Charles Joseph and Gladys Christina McGrail McCarthy (he has two brothers and three sisters). Originally named Charles (after his father), he renamed himself Cormac after the Irish King (another source says that McCarthy’s family was responsible for legally changing his name to the Gaelic equivalent of “son of Charles”).
Cormac McCarthy has a quote that has really stuck with me it is, “Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.” Life has given me a humongous scar. The summer before our senior year, Hunter Wolfe was killed in an accident at work. Something you would never expect happening to anyone. After the accident, you look at life in a different light. For me it has been my first experience of a death. There has been so many emotions that have come to me that I have never experienced. Now that football has rolled around I have been really hounded on by my emotions, because that is where our friendship started.

How would you like if somebody came into you’re house and changed all the rules? During the McCarthy era (1940-1950), tens of thousands of Americans were accused of being communists and became the subject of long investigation. Most targets of the accusations were government employees, people working in the entertainment industry, educators, and union supporters (53a. McCarthyism). Many people lost employment of their job and destruction of their careers; some even were held in prison for years. According to many Americans the McCarthy era was one of the most depressing eras because of false accusations.

In 1911, Polish-British novelist Joseph Conrad composed Under Western Eyes. Conrad is commonly regarded as one of the greatest novelist ever to write in the English language due in large part to his stylistic choices, philosophical insights, and general prose proficiency. Under Western Eyes is a voluminous text with many philosophical undertones, a complex plot, and complicated narrative structure. The protagonist of the story, Kirylo Sidorovich Razumov, experiences much turmoil due to his betrayal of a fellow student and revolutionary named Victor Haldin, and finds his entire existence convoluted new social ties, new emotions, and an inner moral conflict. The question the novel raises has to do with Razumov’s changed circumstances and how these affect his character. Although it is tempting to see him as a “transformed” character, that interpretation is not entirely persuasive. I would suggest that Razumov is, from beginning to end, marked by his inveterate independent nature as an incorrigible loner.
