"Historically considered alone, Conrad now appears an English writer of European and world stature in an age too readily given to the easy rewards of sentimental provincialism and complacent nationalism. There will probably always adhere to his name some of the distinction that comes from contemporary comparison; but the fact now reappears that a distinction belongs to him which confines him to no given period but demands a larger reference, bringing him into the highest company the English, and the European novel provides. It is a distinction...that reveals an honor in craftsmanship and purpose which only a few novelists of his age can as justly claim." - Morton Dauwen Zabel
