Lord Jim Chapter 26 Summary
- Now is as good a time as any to tell you a bit more about Doramin, so Marlow gives us the scoop about this guy, and his son Dain Waris.
- Doramin is the leader of a group called the Bugis, merchants who emigrated to Patusan from Celebes. He's also an enemy of Doramin, which might explain why Jim felt safe taking refuge at his house.
- Doramin and his people consider teaming up against the Rajah with a fanatic named Sherif Ali. By the way, that's also the name of Omar Sharif's character in Lawrence of Arabia. Coincidence?
- But clever Jim has an even better idea. Doramin and his followers should attack Sherif Ali and eliminate the threat he poses.
- A battle ensues.
