Example text

Jones and Ricardo never fathom Heyst's polite and casual attitude. They mistake his forthright manner and courteous behavior as a mask for depths of cunning that frighten them. How does Heyst regard himself? While a person's own estimate of himself may not coincide with others' judgment, still such self-knowledge as a person possesses is important to the study of that character. " He tells Lena that he is "the most detached of all creature, . . the veriest tramp on this earth, an indifferent stroller through the world's bustle .

His fastidious soul has held him back. It still holds him in this moment of Lena's death--the final negation of all his man-soul needs and cries out for. He cannot summon the "true cry of love" to his lips, not even to comfort the girl who has given her life for him. It is the ultimate irony that he makes the physical gesture that convinces Lena of her Victory. com CHAPTER FOURTEEN Summary This final chapter contains Captain Davidson's report of the Samburan affair to an "Excellency" who has called him in for an explanation.

Conrad has fully motivated Heyst by telling us that his philosopher father has imbued him, in his youth, with a deep mistrust of life. At his most impressionable age and under the most poignant of circumstances, the elder Heyst has guided his son, Axel, into an isolationist philosophy that years of experience only confirm, strengthen, and solidify into a pattern of life. " Otherwise he is never to participate in human action. What does Heyst do that reveals him? In all relationship to people he holds himself aloof, masking his indifference under consummate politeness.
