This First Edition of Youth: A Narrative is a significant milestone in the literary evolution of Joseph Conrad as the first of his books to materialise personal experience in his writing. It is also our introduction to the character Marlow who famously features in the classic, "Heart of Darkness" (also included), considered one of the most influential exemplars of the modern fiction novel.
