Catalogue Note

Plath's annotations show a constant and inquiring attentiveness as she reads the book, signalling passages with comments such as "disenchantment - cruel irony of young illusion of sea" (in chapter eleven). Plath has underlined Conrad's comment in his author's note about "thinking it over for something like sixteen years" and added "never commit yourself hastily, I always say!"
