"Typhoon" is a novel that belongs to Joseph Conrad's early works. Like most of his books it talks about the sea, the water element and the man's struggle with it. McVeer, the protagonist, is a captain of a steamer 'Nyan-Shan'. A truly phlegmatic and a prosaic person, he lacks virtually any abstract thinking and imagination. But this is true only at a first glance. A horrific storm sets challenges not only for the captain, who transforms literally in front of the eyes, but also for the entire crew. Will they survive through the ambush of the element? Will the ship stand? Pretty illustrations by Dmitrii Rybalko provide you with new impressions from reading this legendary story.
