The Mirror of the sea is Joseph Conrad's first autobiographical memoir, written in 1906.

This is a very different work in Conrad's bibliography. In a series of profound and lyrical essays, Conrad writes about the relationship between the sea and the lives of those who sail it, based on his own experiences.

Conrad was a sailor before he was a writer, and he uses his memories to reflect on the immensity and mystery of the ocean.

"Landfall and Departure mark the rhythmical swing of a seaman’s life and of a ship’s career. From land to land is the most concise definition of a ship’s earthly fate."
