Overview

UNDER WESTERN EYES......Intrigueing book. Told by a narrator who is involved in the periphery of the action. he's an English language teacher, and is the western eyes of the title. he sees it as his duty to pass on what happened and present the Russians at the core of the story in a manner understandable to the western mind. 250 Pages in print.

In 1910 Joseph Conrad published a novel about a young man named Razumov. This novel is Under Western Eyes and like so much of Conrad it is well written and full of psychological insight. For the 'hero' of the story takes up with a terrorist, Victor Haldin, and betrays him to the secret police. This act haunts him throughout the rest of the novel and the ramifications of his actions determine to a great extent his fate. Set in St. Petersburg before the fall of the Czar and in Geneva Switzerland where revolutionaries plotted against the Czar, this novel takes you into a world of intrigue that shares the atmosphere of that era. The narrator of the novel is a professor of English living in Geneva who through access to Razumov's diary is able to narrate both the inner thoughts of Razumov while sharing the outer circumstances that he observes. This is a novel that lures the reader with a psychological suspense and does not disappoint.

    Conrad's Best Non-Argosy Piece

    Under Western Eyes contains the incite and commentary into revolt and human struggle that is usually only found in genuine russian novels of the previous generation. Although Conrad's 'The Secret Agent,' written on a similar theme, was cumbersome, Under Western Eyes has the same style that makes Lord Jim and other stories so enjoyable.
