By the objective viewpoint--never entering his mind--Conrad makes Jones a most diabolical villain, larger than life. He appears as a hideous specter, an animated corpse, calculating, cruel, and ruthless as the devil he symbolizes. Conrad does not motivate Jones. He tells nothing of his childhood nor of the sinister forces that shaped him into the embodiment of cold horror. With casual insolence, Jones staggers through the plot spreading terror and death. He has one weakness--he loathes women-which proves his undoing in the end.

Is Heyst a "tame" man too? 11. Why does Heyst choose the name Lena for the girl he rescues? Which of her two names fits the girl best?

Sentences, Paragraphs, and Punctuation Departing from the rather ponderous style of his early work, Conrad's paragraphing and sentence structure in Victory are more in line with modern novels. Whereas he formerly ran two or more persons' conversation together in one paragraph, he goes, in Victory, to the opposite extreme and sometimes divides one person's speech into two paragraphs when such division is unnecessary and tends to confuse the reader.
