Conrad, Joseph: Victory, v.1, 19 Dec 2007.

From Wikipedia:

Victory: An Island Tale is a novel by Joseph Conrad first published in 1915.
“Once regarded as comparatively minor amongst Conrad's works, Victory has grown in reputation. Its depiction of the central character, Axel Heyst, and his renunciation of the world, is influenced by Conrad's reading of Schopenhauer. Heyst's alienation stems in large part from a somewhat ascetic upbringing. During the course of the novel, however, Heyst is drawn to commit to life when he falls in love with Lena, a girl in a ladies' touring orchestra. Although the climax of the novel is tragic, it is this commitment that provides the title's ironic victory.”


Neither the PG source, nor the version at the University of Adelaide ebook site have any italics indicated for this novel. I don’t have a paper copy at the moment (it went to the charity shop in the last clear-out) so can’t say whether there were meant to be italics. If you find a better version online, let me know and I will re-do this.

I have added a ToC, restored some accents and included a cover picture.
