    3.5 starsI came across this four story paperback only one left at a booth in our Book Expo 2017 held last October from 18th 29th in Bangkok Since the title The Tale has simply been taken from its third story, the book itself did not interest me at first sight Having a look in the contents, I was relieved I hadn t read the stories before this is their first publication data p iv The Warrior s Soul first published in Land Water, 1917 Prince Roman first published in Oxford and Cambridge Review, 1911 The Tale first published in Strand Magazine, 1917 The Black Mate first published in London Magazine, 1908Surprisingly, there is no synopsis of each story in the wikipedia so the following paraphrase front the front flap and my reading Prince Roman would be the guide 1 The Warrior s Soul explores the triangle relationship between a beautiful woman and two men during Napoleon s invasion of Russia, 2 Prince Roman reveals a story of a noble Polish prince who for some reason decides to fight for his homeland as a common officer, 3 The Tale reveals a distressing account of guilt and responsibility on a ship in an unnamed war, and 4 The Black Mate is a seemingly humorous and enjoyable revelation of life aboard ship.Obviously, we can see that they were published than 100 years ago, in the early 20th century there are two exact centenarians, that is, The Warrior s Soul and The Tale. As for his style, I have found some words used uniquely then and, I think, quite rare nowadays as we can see from the extracts He seemed to me to be prodigiously old p 31 He, for one, didn t want any oldsters on board his ship p 76 etc.The first sentence is unique due to an adjective modified by an adverb prodigiously old plus two like this in the story, pp 32, 33 , the second is due to the noun oldsters it is my first time to see them interestingly used in each story s context There are two reasons related to the words in questions It might be regarded as his kindness to the elderly by his view of seeing those in their old age capable of being in a prodigious manner instead of contemptous words I wonder if it is his praise or satire, truly Then, the word oldsters has amusingly reminded me of its twin like antonym, that is, youngsters.As famously known as an author who has masterly written his works in English as his third language, Conrad wrote superbly, that is, his English being tinged with unexpected pleasant words is simply a delight to read, for example The Prince approached respectfully, told his story and stated his desire to enlist p 41 Such a prince admiringly deserves respect due to his prior respect toward others Such was supposed to be the compelling example of one s man s quiet intrepidity in facing every form of danger and terror pp 43 44 The brave do not boast He was delighted to observe this over bearing ruffian humbled to the dust by the moralising agency of the spirits p 97 In some situations, some people learn to be as humble as possible etc.To continue .

    Following the threads in life, I discovered this short story through the lyrics of Ben Howard s song Conrad Climb outOut to where you seeThe curl of the worldWe re aloneJust like you saidCold, cold worldLife lastsOnly one thing left to rollLast year to learnYou were the boat that breachedIn a tale of Conrad sWe will never be the change to the weather and the seaAnd you knew thatYou were the boat that breachedIn a tale of Conrad sOh I loved you with the good and the careless in meBut it all goes back

    Sounds like Conrad, anyway, but his home is the novel.

    She knew his passion for truth, his horror of deceit, his humanity I saw a push and pull in placing judgment over a person based on 1 the facts provided 2 how we see them and 3 how they make us see them This short story tackled the three I believe and what s horrifying with this tale based on the decisions and consequences bound to them is not knowing what the truth of the matter is Were the actions done justified And so the guilt would always haunt the doer of the action in bringing another to their doom with only a wavering judgment as the proof.
