Originally published in 1981, this concordance can afford particular benefits to the critic and textual scholar because of several specialized problems that The Arrow of Gold presents. It should be able to shed light on problems distinct to The Arrow of Gold even as it provides information on questions pertinent to Conrad’s work as a whole. This volume is part of a series which produced verbal indexes, concordances, and related data for all of Conrad’s works.

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) is widely considered one the great modern writers in English literature. This 21-volume set contains titles, originally published between 1976 and 1990 as well as a biography from 1957 written by one of his closest friends. The first 18 books are a set of concordances and indexes to Conrad’s printed works, which were part of a project directed by Todd K. Bender at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA and are among the first attempts to use the power of computers to enhance our reading environment and assist in lexicography, scholarly editing, and literary analysis. The set also contains a meticulously compiled bibliography of writings on Joseph Conrad, as well as an original and powerful analysis of his major work.
