Unabridged (100% Original content) Font adjustments & biography included Illustrated About Victory: By Joseph Conrad Victory (also published as Victory: An Island Tale) is a psychological vel by Joseph Conrad first published in 1915, through which Conrad achieved popular success. The New York Times, however, called it an uneven book and more open to criticism than most of Mr. Conrad's best work. The vel's most striking formal characteristic is its shifting narrative and temporal perspective with the first section from the viewpoint of a sailor, the second from omniscient perspective of Axel Heyst, the third from an interior perspective from Heyst, and the final section. It has been adapted into film a number of times. Through a business misadventure, the European Axel Heyst ends up living on an island in what is w Indonesia, with a Chinese assistant Wang. Heyst visits a nearby island when a female band is playing at a hotel owned by Mr. Schomberg. Schomberg attempts to force himself sexually on one of the band members, Alma, later called Lena. She flees with Heyst back to his island and they become lovers. Schomberg seeks revenge by attempting to frame Heyst for the murder of a man who had died of natural causes and later by sending three desperadoes (Pedro, Martin Ricardo and Mr. Jones) to Heyst's island with a lie about treasure hidden on the island. The three die (Wang kills one) but Lena dies as well and Axel is overcome with grief and commits suicide.
