about

Joseph Conrad was an English writer of Polish origin and though he wrote his works in English he always considered himself a Pole. His stories often have nautical setting which is a typical feature of adventure stories. A symbolic meaning can be found in this idea: the author traces the fates of people in the indifferent and strange world. Even though his writing style may possess some elements of romanticism he is cosidered as a representetive of modernism. His works have been made into a number of films. 'The Point Of Honor' is a historical novel by Joseph Conrad the tells us about two hussar officers — D'Hubert and Feraud. The story is set in the time of the Napoleonic Wars, the time when men prefered to solve their problems in a straightford and rough way. A quarell over some insignificant thing grows into a life-time standing, and one of the officers chases the other one in order to get satisfaction for the period of fifteen years… This amazing historical novel was set into a movie by Ridley Scott in 1977 under the title 'The Duellists'.
