Conrad, like Nabakov, is famous for having written world-class literature in a language other than his mother tongue. This chapter examines Conrad's linguistic skills, his existence between languages, and how this linguistic experience is manifested in his fiction: it explores Conrad's depiction of plurilingual communities; his presentation of the reader with plurilingual texts; and Marlow's bilingualism.
