summary Youth a Narrative ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Joseph Conrad ¹ 8 download free download Youth a Narrative Youth is an autobiographical short story by Joseph Conrad Written in 1898 it was first published in Blackwood's Magazine and included as the first story in the 1902 volume Youth a Narrative and Two Other Stories This volume a. This could have occurred nowhere but in England where men and sea interpenetrate so to speak the sea entering into the life of most men and the men knowing something or everything about the sea in the way of amusement of travel or of bread winning By all that s wonderful it is the sea I believe the sea itself or is it youth alone Who can tell But you here you all had something out of life money love whatever one gets on shore and tell me wasn t that the best time that time when we were young at sea young and had nothing on the sea that gives nothing except hard knocks and sometimes a chance to feel your strength that only what you all regret Youth marks appearance of man in the world the most alive phase of phase of life has something enigmatic about itself for it has the base of childhood wherein human beings learn about this magical world the aspirations of nether world build upon these years wherein life is so alive The exuberance of life makes you feel that there is no such thing in life which is not possible you may conuer the whole world as if you ve dawned on earth for it It may be said to be an experience that may shape an individual s level of dependency which can be marked in various ways according to different cultural perspectives The self concept of human being is constructed out to vibrancy of youth the choices made in it shape the future of mankind The excitement of youth may be delusional at times for we tend not to accept our limitations in life Joseph Conrad builds up a tragic story of humanity looking at vibrancy and enthusiasm of itself when it was youthful The memories of youth always haunt the adulthood for the free air of youth teases the monotony of middle age Youth is a feat of memory and a record of experiences rooted in its facts its inwardness its outward colouring beginning and ending in itself The main themes describe some aspects of human life and behaviour some of which are idealism versus realism survival and the trials and tribulations that are encountered through life Marlow a middle aged man tells about his voyage of youth to his friends when he used his exuberance to overcome vagaries of life The air of adventure and romance keeps him propelling amidst the hardship of the voyage The burning and sinking of the ship is an adventure to be savoured but this also foreshadows his future the flames of youth are uenched by time the ship does not reach its destination and Marlow s youthful dreams are not reached And do you know what I thought I thought I would part company as soon as I could I wanted to have my first command all to myself I wasn t going to sail in a suadron if there were a chance for independent cruising I would make land by myself I would beat the other boats Youth All youth The silly charming beautiful youthJoseph Conrad was a Polish British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English instead of the fact that he did not learn as his first language Youth has taken leaf from own experience of Conrad Marlow the romantic man blossoming with youth falls for Judea the ship despite the obvious challenges of the voyage rat infestation crew rebellion Abraham the first mate losing his mind and finally the loss of the ship itself in an explosion fall out as exciting experiences not so much as tragedies for him At the heart of Youth lies the moral dilemmas of humankind in the middle of sea the fear of forgetfulness surrounds Marlow for he doesn t feel belonged to the world however the thrill of seeing east provided him strength to brave the horrors of existence In his own command of one of the longboats he sees a ship on the horizon that might as well relieve them of their duty of bringing the boats into port The Do or Die motto of the ship resonates so well with him the flair of his youthfulness struck with it The fire of Judea dazzling than the flames of the burning ship throwing a magic light on the wide earth leaping audaciously to the sky presently to be uenched by time cruel pitiless bitter than the sea and like the flames of the burning ship surrounded by an impenetrable night But he says nothing for this sees it the magical East Between the darkness of earth and heaven she was burning fiercely upon a disc of purple sea shot by the blood red play of gleams upon a disc of water glittering and sinister A high clear flame an immense and lonely flame ascended from the ocean and from its summit the black smoke poured continuously at the sky She burned furiously mournful and imposing like a funeral pile kindled in the night surrounded by the sea watched over by the stars A magnificent death had come like a grace like a gift like a reward to that old ship at the end of her laborious days The surrender of her weary ghost to the keeping of stars and sea was stirring like the sight of a glorious triumph The masts fell just before daybreak and for a moment there was a burst and turmoil of sparks that seemed to fill with flying fire the night patient and watchful the vast night lying silent upon the sea At daylight she was only a charred shell floating still under a cloud of smoke and bearing a glowing mass of coal within Between the darkness of earth and heaven she was burning fiercely upon a disc of purple sea shot by the blood red play of gleams upon a disc of water glittering and sinister A high clear flame an immense and lonely flame ascended from the ocean and from its summit the black smoke poured continuously at the sky She burned furiously mournful and imposing like a funeral pile kindled in the night surrounded by the sea watched over by the stars A magnificent death had come like a grace like a gift like a reward to that old ship at the end of her laborious days The surrender of her weary ghost to the keeping of stars and sea was stirring like the sight of a glorious triumph The masts fell just before daybreak and for a moment there was a burst and turmoil of sparks that seemed to fill with flying fire the night patient and watchful the vast night lying silent upon the sea At daylight she was only a charred shell floating still under a cloud of smoke and bearing a glowing mass of coal withinI did not know how good a man I was till then I remember the drawn faces the dejected figures of my two men and I remember my youth and the feeling that will never come back any the feeling that I could last for ever outlast the sea the earth and all men the deceitful feeling that lures us on to joys to perils to love to vain effort to death the triumphant conviction of strength the heat of life in the handful of dust the glow in the heart that with every year grows dim grows cold grows small and expires and expires too soon before life itself Conrad weaves the story around sentences which themselves suggest the exhausting mind deadening experience of undergoing a relentless storm and the continual repetitive struggle to stay alive The experience is evoked by a series of short phrases presented in parallel structure It blew day after day it blew with spite without interval without mercy without rest or by rhythms that mirror the endless mindless tedium of pumping water from the leaking hull The narrative is framed in multiple layers intertwined with the intimate act of telling and listening to oral stories the seafaring is told with deception and stabilization we observe in The Old man and the Sea The traits of post modernism are at the centre of Youth in intimations of the dialogic along with the shifting discourse intimations of self reflexivity inter textual space and there is the sense of loss and pointlessness of striving that is fairly common in such writing He speaks here not at all of the evils of humans but of the hardness of their lot and the courage with which ordinary people may face the threat of death More than that he marvels at the fact that such a life can seem like fun I have known its fascination since I have seen the mysterious shores the still water the lands of brown nations where a stealthy Nemesis lies in wait pursues overtakes so many of the conuering race who are proud of their wisdom of their knowledge of their strength But for me all the East is contained in that vision of my youth It is all in that moment when I opened my young eyes on it I came upon it from a tussle with the sea and I was young and I saw it looking at me And this is all that is left of it Only a moment a moment of strength of romance of glamour of youth A flick of sunshine upon a strange shore the time to remember the time for a sigh and good bye Night Good bye 45
