Celebrated by many critics as one of the greatest English-language novels of the twentieth century, Lord Jim tells the story of a British seaman tried for dereliction of duty. Coming into the graces of a sympathetic sea captain, Jim escapes his checkered past on a remote island with several despondent native populations. Winning the love and respect of the disenfranchised locals, Jim discovers that second chances often come with opportunities for sacrifice and redemption.
