Razumov betrays Haldin, shopping him to the police. Haldin is arrested and hanged. Razumov is then recruited as a spy for the police and sent on a mission to Geneva to infiltrate the Russian community in exile there who are plotting against the system in Russia. He does so and falls in love with Haldin? s sister. Tormented by remorse at having betrayed her brother, he writes her a documentary confessional, and then confesses himself to the revolutionary group, who take their revenge by making him deaf. Razumov then falls under a tram and is crippled for life. Broken and deaf, he returns to Russia to live in obscurity.
Über den Autor: Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. He is considered an early modernist, though his works still contain elements of nineteenth-century realism. His most famous novels like The Nigger of the 'Narcissus', Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agenta and Under Western Eyes, which combined his experiences in remote places with an interest in moral conflict and the dark side of human nature.
