A literary criticism of the book "Victory," written by Joseph Conrad is presented. It states that the language used in "Victory" draw upon dichotomies of good and evil. Furthermore, it also talks about Alfred Russel Wallace's 1869 book "The Malay Archipelago" which was one of the sources of "Victory."
