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
