Joseph Conrad: The Short Fiction

Joseph Conrad: The Short Fiction


1 New & Used Starting at $11.45


Joseph Conrad: The Short Fiction offers a wide range of perspectives on Conrad’s short stories. Nine essays, by established and emerging scholars, deal with early and classic stories as well as the relatively neglected works of Conrad’s later career.
The essays explore in depth the historical and publishing contexts of individual stories and provide insights into Conrad’s practice as a writer of short fiction. These new readings, based on contemporary theoretical and interpretive perspectives, will appeal not only to specialists of literary Modernism but also to the advanced student and the general reader.
