"Youth" depicts a young man's first journey to the East. It is narrated by Charles Marlow who is also the narrator of Lord Jim and Chance. Mr. Marlow seems to appear for the first time chronologically in Conrad's works (the Author remarks, that he thinks, Marlow spells his name this way)...

Utdrag ur boken:
'A little man, dry like a chip and agile like a monkey, clambered up. It was the mate of the steamer. He gave one look, and cried, 'O boys - you had better quit.'

A 20-year-old young man makes trips on the oceans. The ship that he works on have a big leak and the journey will be very dangerous. The same ship later have a fire that can not be stopped. Finally, the crew had to abandon the ship.

The story could be taken place today at a coal-fired ships. The book described very well what is happening at sea in danger, lack of sleep and coping despite the fact that the forces are exhausted.
