Conrad began to write Allmayer's Folly in the summer of 1889. It was published by 1895 and was followed by An Outcast of the Islands in 1896. This is a prequel to Allmayer's Folly and introduces us to the earlier lives of some of the characters. The "Outcast" of the tale falls in love with a native girl, but she has other ideas.
