Empire and Pilgrimage in Conrad and Joyce

The chapter studies the presence of pilgrimage in Conrad's texts. It states that Conrad's depiction of the long-forgotten world of sea voyages echoes the pilgrimages of his characters. Conrad's personal pilgrimage influenced his fictional accounts of travel in his texts. Conrad's characters feel compelled to move on through seas, jungles, and cities, and this seems to be a consistent pattern in his writings.
