In it he captures a young mans exhilaration in the face of danger and the unknown.THE END OF THE TETHER is of a different mold. Captain Whalley, aging but still afloat, compromises his principles without understanding what can follow. But life, like the sea, is unsparing, and the captains fate arrives in due course, served up with Conrads own brand of uncompromising logic.
