About this book

Introduction

This book is essential reading for an understanding of Conrad's fiction both as a product of the political, social and intellectual forces dominating the period 1870-1920, and of the pressures and influences in Conrad's own life. A knowledge of the period is not taken for granted, but explanations of the relevant events and ideas are woven into discussion of the stories and novels. Full use is made of letters, diaries, newspaper reports, magazine articles and the popular fiction of the day, in addition to detailed analysis of Conrad's fiction. This study puts Conrad into a new perspective, providing stimulating material for students, teachers and general readers.
