Book Description

The popular yet complex work of Joseph Conrad has attracted much critical attention over the years, from the perspectives of postcolonial, modernist, cultural and gender studies. This guide to his compelling work presents:

  • an accessible introduction to the contexts and many interpretations of Conrad’s texts, from publication to the present
  • an introduction to key critical texts and perspectives on Conrad’s life and work, situated in a broader critical history
  • cross-references between sections of the guide, in order to suggest links between texts, contexts and criticism
  • suggestions for further reading.

Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of Joseph Conrad and seeking not only a guide to his works, but also a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds them.

'This is an excellent starting point for students who are new to Conrad's work - and a refresher course for those who would like to keep up to date with criticism.' - Roy Johnson, Mantex
