It provides a glimpse of how Conrad wished to be seen by his British public, as well as being an atmospheric work of art.[citation needed] The Familiar Preface Conrad wrote for it includes the often quoted lines: Those who read me know my conviction that the world, the temporal world, rests on a few very simple ideas- so simple that they must be as old as the hills. It rests notably, among others, on the idea of Fidelity.
