The Tragedy of the Korosko, Part 1

For the first of our Tales for Our Time, Steyn reads Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 1898 novel The Tragedy of the Korosko. To hear Part One, simply click above. It's prefaced with an introduction by Mark in which he discusses the book's relevance to our new age of jihadist terror. Indeed, Conan Doyle's story ripples with pre-echoes of today: "It isn't safe to reckon upon a Dervish's fears," remarked Brown. "We must always bear in mind that they are not amenable to the same motives as other people. Many of them are anxious to meet death, and all of them are absolute, uncompromising believers in destiny. They exist as a reductio ad absurdum of all bigotry—a proof of how surely it leads towards blank barbarism." "You think these people are a real ...

The Tragedy of the Korosko, Part 2

Welcome to our audio serialization of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel The Tragedy of the Korosko. To hear Part Two, simply click above. For Part One, prefaced by my thoughts on the book's relevance to our age, please click here. For a glimpse of the difference between our time and Conan Doyle's, however, consider this observation in today's installment - by two western tourists on the covered women of the Sudan: "There's one thing I wish," remarked Miss Adams, in the hard, metallic voice with which she disguised her softness of heart, "and that is, that I could see the Legislature of this country and lay a few cold-drawn facts in front of them. I'd make a platform of my own, Mr. Stephens, and run a party on my ticket. A Bill for the ...

Welcome to Part Three of our audio serialization of The Tragedy of the Korosko. To listen, simply click above. For Part One, prefaced by my thoughts on the book's relevance to our age, and Part Two please scroll down. Today's episode includes this exchange between an Englishman and an American on why Britain wound up as "the world's policeman": "Each [nation] has its own mission. Germany is predominant in abstract thought; France in literature, art, and grace. But we and you—for the English-speakers are all in the same boat, however much the New York Sun may scream over it—we and you have among our best men a higher conception of moral sense and public duty than is to be found in any other people. Now, these are the two qualities which are ...
