Footnote

In June 1878, a British steamer, the Mavis, docked at Lowestoft, and a 20-year-old Ukrainian sailor, Jozef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, set foot for the first time on British soil. Within 10 years he became the only Polish-Ukrainian to gain a Master's certificate in the British Merchant Marine service; but it is not for this that we remember him. The seaman was also known as Joseph Conrad and by 1895, his first novel had been published; soon he became one of the greatest novelists in English with a legacy that includes at least 20 novels and a mass of short stories and essays.
