Overview

This book challenges the traditional image of Joseph Conrad as writer of the sea, a man in a man's world. It re-establishes the importance of significant women in his life, and his engagement with women's writing. Rethinking received views of Conrad as a modernist writer, it also explores the experimentation of his later, less familiar works, first published in the women's pages of popular journals.

Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth Lowry
Jones is a discriminating reader, possessing an admirably thorough knowledge not just of Conrad's life and work, but also of the Polish literary scene at the turn of the century....she is further blessed with a light touch.
