Read full description of the books El duelo:
El duelo es una de las más fascinantes novelas cortas de Joseph Conrad. Con las guerras napoleónicas como fondo romántico de esta historia, se narra en ella la contienda entablada por dos oficiales de distintos regimientos de húsares a lo largo de sus respectivas carreras militares, cuyos destinos discurren, de modo misterioso, paralelamente. La historia de este duelo, que llegaría a convertirse en leyenda dentro del ajército, tiene su origen en una oscura e imperdonable ofensa causada por el teniente D'Hubert, hombre de gran cordura y celoso de su deber, al también oficial de campo Feraud, de temperamento más belicoso e intrigante que militar. Este antagonismo hará que ambos se vean unidos en un íntimo y absurdo compromiso
Read information about the authorJoseph Conrad (born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski ) was a Polish-born English novelist who today is most famous for Heart of Darkness, his fictionalized account of Colonial Africa.
Conrad left his native Poland in his middle teens to avoid conscription into the Russian Army. He joined the French Merchant Marine and briefly employed himself as a wartime gunrunner. He then began to work aboard British ships, learning English from his shipmates. He was made a Master Mariner, and served more than sixteen years before an event inspired him to try his hand at writing.
He was hired to take a steamship into Africa, and according to Conrad, the experience of seeing firsthand the horrors of colonial rule left him a changed man.
Joseph Conrad settled in England in 1894, the year before he published his first novel. He was deeply interested in a small number of writers both in French and English whose work he studied carefully. This was useful when, because a need to come to terms with his experience, lead him to write Heart of Darkness, in 1899, which was followed by other fictionalized explorations of his life.
He has been lauded as one of the most powerful, insightful, and disturbing novelists in the English canon despite coming to English later in life, which allowed him to combine it with the sensibilities of French, Russian, and Polish literature.
