(Fred G.H. Bachrach) The Low Countries - 2000, № 8, pp. 101-107
Bachrach charts the Dutch influences on the work of Joseph Conrad. We see Conrad signing on on the Highland Forest in Amsterdam. Later he dines in Borneo with the Dutch colonial trader Olmeyer, who would provide the model for the protagonist in his novel Almayer's Folly – a novel which, like a couple of Conrad's other works, also owes a considerable debt to Multatuli's Max Havelaar.
