  • 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.

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…
