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.

About the Series

Routledge Library Editions: Joseph Conrad

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.
