This year’s edition of the Conrad Festival is named after Joseph Conrad’s volume titled Tales of Unrest. It has been translated into Polish as Opowieści niepokojące, but the title seems not quite satisfactory. It should rather be something like doniesienia z krainy niepokoju (reports from the land of unrest).
