Lord Jim is a novel written by Joseph Conrad in 1899 and first published in 1900.

Lord Jim is the story of a young man named Jim who, after falling into disgrace and being exiled from his home, arrives in the Orient where he becomes enlisted on a ship in the East Indies. He eventually gets a position as captain of a ship on the Congo River, where he witnesses firsthand the atrocities committed by the Belgian colonialists. After a series of events and happenings, Jim will try to redeem himself by leading a dangerous rescue mission upriver.

This novel was written at the height of European colonialism, and the novel is quite critical of this colonial enterprise. The novel raises important questions about the nature of morality and the human capacity for redemption.

The book is a powerful exploration of human nature and the search for meaning in life. Jim, as a character, is a complex figure who is both a victim of colonialism and a perpetrator of it.
