Overview

This edition of Conrad's classic 1912 short story reprints the authoritative text of the 1924 Doubleday Edition together with five critical essays - all newly commissioned - that read "The Secret Sharer" from five contemporary critical perspectives: Psychoanalytic Criticism by Daniel R. Schwarz, Reader-Response Criticism by James Phelan, New Historicist Criticism by Michael Levenson, Feminist and Gender Criticism by Bonnie Kime Scott, and Deconstruction by J. Hillis Miller. Each critical essay is accompanied by a succinct introduction to the history, principles, and practice of the critical perspective and by a bibliography that promotes further exploration of that approach. In addition, the text and essays are complemented by an introduction providing biographical and historical contexts for Conrad and "The Secret Sharer," a survey of critical responses to the work since its initial publication, and a glossary of critical and theoretical terms.
