  • The Importance Of Friendship In Joseph Conrad's The Secret Sharer

    The Importance of Friendship Friendship is, by definition, a relationship between two friends. Some believe that friendships are a necessity for human life. Joseph Conrad was a man who grew up not having many friends. As a young child he had missed school quite a bit from illnesses (Kathleen Wilson 200). This made it hard to have close relationships with other children. He did however gain a love for literature and the sea from his father at a young age (www.notablebiographies.com). This is more than likely where his novelette “The Secret Sharer” derived from. In Joseph Conrad’s novelette, “The Secret Sharer” he uses the relationship between the two main characters, the captain and Leggatt, to portray the theme of friendship. He uses characterization and diction to convey how important friendships really are in human life. Joseph Conrad was born in 1875 in Berdyczew, Poland.

From a young age, Conrad had had an overwhelming fascination for the sea. As he grew to be a teenager, this draw towards the sea grew stronger. He had always had…
