A Secret Sharer

During his voyage to the Gulf of Siam, a young and rather insecure English captain finds a stranger in the water. The man is taken on board and turns out to be the chief mate of another English ship who was arrested by his crew but could escape. The young captain decides to help the mate and houses him in his cabin. This is the beginning of a nerve-racking hide and seek because neither the captain?s own crew nor the mate?s captain looking for the deserter are allowed to find him. ?A Secret Sharer? was originally published in 1912 in Conrad?s volume of tales ?Twixt Land and Sea?. Joseph Conrad was born in 1857 in former Poland. In 1886 he obtained British citizenship and two years later was appointed captain of the British merchant marine. His voyages to the Malay Peninsula and to the Congo Free State became the setting for his stories. Conrad published many tales and novels in English and is still regarded as one of the most brilliant authors in English literature. He died in 1924 in England.

Cap’n Eri (Webster’s Korean Thesaurus Edition)

Websters paperbacks take advantage of the fact that classics are frequently assigned readings in English courses. By using a running English-to-Korean thesaurus at the bottom of each page, this edition of Capn Eri by Joseph Crosby Lincoln was edited for three audiences. The first includes Korean-speaking students enrolled in an English Language Program (ELP), an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program, an English as a Second Language Program (ESL), or in a TOEFL or TOEIC preparation program. The second audience includes English-speaking students enrolled in bilingual education programs or Korean speakers enrolled in English-speaking schools. The third audience consists of students who are actively building their vocabularies in Korean in order to take foreign service, translation certification, Advanced Placement (AP) or similar examinations.

Websters edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to difficult, yet commonly used words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Korean, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid them using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher awords meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages.
