Cross-Cultural Encounters in Joseph Conrad's Malay Fiction
     

Cross-Cultural Encounters in Joseph Conrad's Malay Fiction

by Robert Hampson, R. G. Hampson
 

This book focuses on Conrad's Malay fiction and the way in which it deals with cross-cultural encoutners, cultural identity and cultural dislocation. Issues of race and gender are to the fore. There are a number of books which deal with Conrad and Empire, but Robert Hampson's book carves its own niche by taking the arguments of others further.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Bringing early and late novels and short stories together to consider all Conrad's Malay fiction, Hampson (modern literature, U. of London) explores cross-cultural encounters and cultural identity and dislocation, paying particular attention to race and gender. He also situates the fiction in relation to earlier English accounts of the archipelago. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
