CHAPTER XI - JOSEPH CONRAD: A NOTE

would have pardoned the indiscretion. Mr. Conrad takes the opportunity to growl.
'What on earth is an "engaging ruffian." He must be a creature of literary imagination, I thought, for the two words don't match in my personal experience. It has happened to me to meet a few ruffians here and there, but I never found one of them " engaging." I consoled myself, however, by reflecting that the friendly reviewerr must have been talking like a parrot, which so often seems to understand what it says.'
The castigation is merited, yet few writers, great or small, would have inflicted it, because they have a hankering for friendship. Neither explicitly nor implicitly does Mr. Conrad demand friendship : he desires no good wishes from his readers : the
anonymous intimacy, so dear to most, is only an annoyance and a hindrance to him.
