About the book:

This text is an understanding of Conrad's fiction both as a product of the political, social and intellectual forces dominating the period 1870-1920, and of the pressures and influences in Conrad's own life. Explanations of the relevant events and ideas are woven into discussion of the stories and novels. The novels which are studied in depth include "Heart of Darkness", "Nostromo", "The Secret Agent" and "Victory". Full use is made of letters, diaries, newspaper reports, magazine articles and the popular fiction of the day, in addition to detailed analysis of Conrad's fiction. There are also extracts from popular writers of the day such as Kipling, Haggard and Conan Doyle. Also by the author is "How to Study a Joseph Conrad Novel".
