Joseph Conrad was born in Poland and lived on Dynevor Road in Stoke
Newington when he wasn’t voyaging on the high seas of international commerce
and writing landmark modernist novels like
Heart of Darkness and Lord Jim. To
mark his 160th birthday, Zoe Gilbert and Farah Ahamed celebrate his legacy with
new work inspired by Conrad and discuss his prescient storytelling and the
continuing moral challenges of a globalised world.
