Autobiographically inclined best describes the vignettes Conrad presents in this volume. Several of them form an arc of connected stories. All are descriptive of the ocean, the age of sail, and the men who served aboard the ships of that era. Conrad writes most majestically of the end of the age of sail, contrasting the emotional heart of sailing ships with the cold impersonal nature he saw accompanying the age of steam. So, it's no coincidence that the last pages of the book focus on Lord Nelson, the most romantic of British heroes coming out of that age.

There is something else. This volume should be read after perusing most of the rest of Conrad's work. That is, if you want to find hints and clues to the storylines he had already written by 1906 and was to write soon thereafter. For they are secreted away here, sometimes in a few lines, often in imagery, and frequently in plot. ( )

An interesting account of some of Conrad’s personal life. The book is pierced with some spellbinding descriptions and tinged with an accurate and methodical writing style. ( )

Una raccolta di divagazioni a metà tra il saggio, il racconto e il diario che rivelano la sostanziale identità tra vita marinara e scrittura che caratterizza l'opera di Conrad.
In queste pagine ripercorriamo l'apprendistato di uomo di mare dello scrittore, l'esperienza a bordo, le tecniche di navigazione, la passione profonda per la vela. In uno scritto a prefazione di una delle edizioni di questa opera egli affermava che "Lo specchio del mare" era il miglior tributo che la sua devozione poteva offrire a ciò che aveva formato il suo destino : "il mare imperituro".

A fleet of fore-and-afters at anchor has its own slender graciousness. The setting of their sails resembles more than anything else the unfolding of a bird's wings; the facility of their evolutions is a pleasure to the eye. They are birds of the sea, whose swimming is like flying, and resembles more a natural function than the handling of man invented appliances. The fore-and-aft rig in its simplicity and the beauty of its aspect under every angle of vision is, I believe, unapproachable. A schooner, a yawl, or cutter in charge of a capable man seems to handle herself as if endowed with the power of reasoning and the gift of sweet execution. One laughs with sheer pleasure at a smart piece of manoeuvring, as at a manifestation of a living creature's quick wit and graceful precision.
