Referat :: Typhoon
This fragment is taken from a celebrated short story by Conrad, remarkable for its description of a terrible storm at sea, as well as for the portrait of a modest and brave ship captain.
W. Allen said about Conrad in "The English Novel":
"Conrad had known French from childhood and was widely read in its literature, but he did not begin to learn English until he was twenty-three. That he should have learnt it to such purpose as to become a master of our prose (…) is one of the most remarkable facts recorded in literary history. Yet the fact itself, together with his romantic extra-literary career as a sailor in exotic waters, may easily blind us to the essential nature of Conrads genius as a novelist. He is not great simply because he pulled off a remarkable fact; and though he is a novelist of the sea and of exotic places, he is much more. His life at sea provided him with a store of experiences that he drew upon for the material of his fiction, but the true value of the sea and of the exotic places was that they offered him what might almost be called the laboratory conditions in which he could make his investigations into the nature of man and the springs of action. "
The story Typhoon is seen through Jukss eyes, but the author does not use the 1st person narrative. The two heroes of this scene go through a very dramatic, tense experience. Although they have seen many storms at sea, this one seems to be fiercer than any other. Their lives are in danger, the ship may be crushed any moment. In such moments, peoples behavior is quite significant. Nobody can pretend to be different from what they really are. Although two boats had been blown away, captain MacWhirr didnt lose his courage. He knew that the ship would resist. And he was right because finally they succeed in this confrontation with the storm.
