Book Description Report this book
The Rescue is a novel by Joseph Conrad, published in 1920 but begun in the 1890s and set aside by Conrad to write The Nigger of the Narcissus. The novel concluded what is sometimes referred to as "The Lingard Trilogy", a group of novels based on Conrad's experience as mate on the steamer, Vidar. Although it is the last of the three novels to be published, after Almayer's Folly (1895) and An Outcast of the Islands (1896), the events related in the novel precede those.
