"This is a splendid collection of original, accessible, and thought-provoking essays. The student fresh to Conrad's fiction will find here essential information on the complexities of Conrad's life, writing, and reception, along with stimulating interpretations of individual works. Four excellent essays on Heart of Darkness are complemented by original readings of the early fiction and of Lord Jim, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, 'The Secret Sharer,' and Under Western Eyes. The student who buys this book should not be surprised if their teacher asks to borrow it."—Jeremy Hawthorn, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
