In Victory (1915), Conrad returns to the Malay Archipelago, to the setting of his first mature novel, Lord Jim, and in Axel Heyst he creates a hero who is in many ways similar to Jim, a noble altruist destroyed by his ideals. It is a story of action and high adventure coexisting with an
exhaustive study of the psychology of a man who's philosophy of life is summed up in the dying words of his father: "Look on -- make no sound."
