Overview

The setting for Nostromo by Joseph Conrad is an imaginary South American state, Costaguana, intended to be typical of that continent. At the outset, it is ruled by a brutal and corrupt dictator after a short period of enlightened liberal rule. Only the Occidental Province remains a refuge of enlightenment and comparative prosperity and the story is of how the Occidental republic establishes its independence of the rest of the country, but at the same time, loses its ideals which inspired it in the struggle. The narrative revolves around five main characters, united by the theme of individual isolation even in cooperation with one another. The classic novel has been formatted for optimal viewing on the Nook and is equipped with an active Table of Contents for smooth and simple navigation!
