Lord Jim Chapter 19 Summary

  • It's no suprise that Jim starts to become notorious for running away from jobs.
  • He gets a gig with the Yucker Brothers, which once again starts out well, but then Jim gets into a barroom brawl with a Danish guy over the Patna affair and has to skip town yet again. You'd think that would teach him a lesson, right?
  • Alas, not so much. When Marlow gets him another job with a dude named De Jongh, Jim promptly quits that one, too.
  • At his wits' end, Marlow decides to discuss Jim with a friend of his, a German merchant and naturalist named Stein.
