Overview

The five stories brought together in Tales of Unrest (1898) mark a turning point in the writer's career. Conrad's first short story collection evidences a writer firmly in control of his new craft staking a claim to diverse cultural and fictional territories. The introduction situates the writing of these stories in Conrad's career and discusses their sources and contemporary reception. The explanatory notes identify literary and historical references and real-life places, and indicate influences. Two maps and six illustrations enrich the explanatory matter. The essay on the text lays out the history of the work's composition and publication, details interventions by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors, and explains editorial policy. This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's stories and his preface to the collection in forms more authoritative than any so far printed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This latest instalment in the Cambridge edition of Conrad’s collected works, edited by Allan H. Simmons and J. H. Stape, aims to recover an experience of reading Conrad stripped of the interventions that produced the texts with which we are now familiar … Conrad studies today, much like Conrad’s career then, are in vital, vibrant form."
Andrew Purssell, English Literature in Transition, 1880–1920

I'm reviewing this specific Google Books edition. It started out with about one major typo per page. That was bad enough to take me out of the reading a bit, but I could usually guess what the wrong word was supposed to be. Bit there were a few pages with multiple bad typos & I gave up. Conrad's murky prose is challenging enough on its own.
