Lord Jim Chapter 29 Summary

  • It's time for Marlow to take a breather. He considers Jim's situation on Patusan and expresses some concerns.
  • Marlow notes that Jewel and Tamb' Itam both seem protective of Jim, and he notices that Cornelius seems to be skulking around a lot.
  • As it turns out, Jim goes to stay with Cornelius after he leaves Doramins, which is a bit of a problem because Cornelius hates Jim. And no wonder – Stein sent Jim to take over Cornelius's job.
  • Soon after he moves into Cornelius's, Jim learns that the Rajah is planning to assassinate him. Danger: rough waters ahead.
