Overview

Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard is a novel of great political and psychological importance in modern literature. Set in the fictional South American nation of Costaguana – a land wracked by war and revolution – Conrad paints a mesmerizing portrait of man’s vulnerability to greed and corruption. Through a unique narrative style and vivid characterization, Conrad delves into an account of human frailty with an ironic twist; it is a story without heroes.

Conrad's dazzling array of viewpoints and chronology ensure that the reader is embroiled in the stress and passion of each moment of his characters' lives.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I had always thought that there were books you read to entertain yourself and classic books to educate you, but with Nostromo I realised a book could be both." —-Billy Ivory, Nottingham Evening Post
David Latane Jr. Virginia Commonwealth University
"Ruth Nadelhaft's new edition of Nostromo is a timely addition to the Broadview Editions series. Without neglecting the traditional critical and biographical approaches, the supplementary materials and lucid introduction place Conrad's difficult masterpiece fully and clearly within its contemporary contexts (especially the events surrounding the Panama Canal project), and in relation to our own debates about imperialism, colonials, and alleged racism in Conrad's work. Broadview's Nostromo, like its companion volumes, is truly a text for the way we teach now."
Michael Coyle Colgate University
"Nadelhaft negotiates the impasse between existential and political responses to the book. In reaffirming that the personal is the political, she demonstrates how Nostromo represents the process whereby 'imperialism transmits the virus of alienation.' Joined with the historical apparatus so characteristic of Broadview Editions, such theorizing genuinely reopens a book that hasn't yet received its due."
From Barnes & Noble
In this gripping story about an imaginative South American republic of Costaguana, Conrad paints in shocking detail the insidious effects of greed and corruption. When the silver mines of the South American Republic of Costaguana are threatened by rebel forces, a brave Italian captain, Nostromo, steps in and offers to bury the silver to ensure its safety. His good intentions become tainted as the dark forces of human nature take over.
