A collection of three shorter works by the famous British writer of Ukrainian extraction. Conrad’s experience of exile from Ukraine manifests itself in the themes of isolation and migration found in Amy Foster (1901) and Tomorrow (1902). This circle of themes is still live for Ukrainian readers as Ukrainian nation passed through several “waves” of the mass exodus in the late 19th – early 21st centuries. The Amy Foster tells the story of an emigrated Galician adjusting to his new life in England, and Tomorrow tells of the homecoming of an aging sailor’s longlost son. In the meanwhile Falk (1901) contrasts, as Conrad once put it, “common sentimentalism with the frank standpoint of a more or less primitive man”, a man with a conscience, however, about the girl he desires.
