Lord Jim Chapter 24 Summary

  • Two years later, Marlow goes to Patusan to visit Jim. He wants to offer Jim the trading post house on the island, as a gift from Stein.
  • He arrives to find that Jim has become a local hero, and everyone there calls him Tuan Jim, or Lord Jim.
  • When Jim gives Marlow a brief tour, we learn that when Jim first arrived, the natives of Patusan didn't exactly lay out the red carpet. He was taken to Rajah Allang, who promptly locked him up.
