Almayer’s Folly is the legendary Joseph Conrad’s first novel. Set in the nineteenth century, the novel deals with some highly charged issues such as colonialism and racial relations, with the hero’s mixed race marriage and its effect on his daughter. The devastating effects of colonialism are dealt with, with Conrad treating the subject matter with a sharp eye, and a penchant for psychological authenticity, and delivering a story that is biting and rings true even today, more than a hundred years after the novel was first written.
