Overview

The latest volume in the Conrad: Eastern and Western Perspectives series, the thirteen essays in Inter-Relations offer fresh, contemporary perspectives on the literary relationships between Joseph Conrad, Henry James, and Ford Madox Ford, particularly their methodological approaches and how these approaches influenced the artistic growth of Joseph Conrad.
