Book Description

Originally published in 1985, as with the earlier volumes in the series, the reader of The Rover is here provided a Verbal Index, citing each type and its location, a Word Frequency Table, and a Field of Reference. Using the tables in this concordance, the reader should be better able to address the issue of style and determine on a more informed basis whether Conrad has deliberately eschewed the adjectival and even the figurative in favour of a lean, spare style, or whether he has simply tangled his style in rhetorical excesses and imprecisions.
