Most widely held works by Cedric Thomas Watts
Heart of darkness and other tales by Joseph Conrad ( )
34 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 1,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in an atmosphere of mystery and menace, "Heat of Darkness" tells the story of Marlow's journey up the Congo River to meet the remarkable Mr. Kurtz. It reveals Conrad at the height of his powers as a writer of great vividness, intensity, and sophistication. "An Outpost of Progress" is also set in central Africa and offers a fiercely sardonic view of European imperialism. "Karain", with its Malaysian setting, questions conventional ideas of the contrasts between races. "Youth" is a largely autobiographical account of an inn-fated voyage in which Marlow makes his first appearance

Romeo and Juliet by Cedric Thomas Watts ( Book )
15 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Watt's cogent analysis reveals the many contrasting elements of Romeo and Juliet--its high comedy and bitter tragedy, sociable festivity and private raptures violent hatred and pacific understanding, impetuous youth and stubborn age, realistically expressive language and witty linguistic display. By examining the play's attempt to bridge these disparate aspects, this unique reading breathes new life into a work whose familiarity often causes modern audiences and readers to lose sight of its position as one of Shakespeare's masterpieces

Lord Jim a tale by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
28 editions published between 1949 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The eponymous Jim is a young, good-looking, genial, and naive water-clerk on the Patna, a cargo ship plying Asian waters. He is, we are told, "the kind of fellow you would, on the strength of his looks, leave in charge of the deck." He also harbors romantic fantasies of adventure and heroism--which are promptly scuttled one night when the ship collides with an obstacle and begins to sink. Acting on impulse, Jim jumps overboard and lands in a lifeboat, which happens to be bearing the unscrupulous captain and his cohorts away from the disaster. The Patna, however, manages to stay afloat. The foundering vessel is towed into port--and since the officers have strategically vanished, Jim is left to stand trial for abandoning the ship and its 800 passengers

╩╗Typhoon╩╝ and other tales by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
18 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The four tales in this volume share autobiographical origins in Conrad's experience at sea and his exile from Poland, the country of his birth. 'Typhoon' is the story of a steamship and her crew beset by tempest, and of the stolid captain whose dogged courage is tested to the limit. In 'Falk' a taciturn young woman is bizarrely courted by a tug-boat master who is haunted by a terrible secret. 'Amy Foster' tells of an emigrant Pole struggling to overcome isolation and prejudice in England. The final tale, 'The Secret Sharer', is Conrad's most famous short story, a masterpiece of suspense and ambiguity. Giving sanctuary to a fugitive sailor, a young seacaptain risks his ship and his command in the quest to save him."--Jacket

This book offers a detailed discussion of Conrad's most brilliant and problematic work. Many significant aspects of Heart of Darkness are examined, from plot and characterisation to imagery and symbolism, and particular attention is paid to its ambiguity and paradoxes. By relating the text to a variety of contexts, Cedric Watts explores Conrad's central preoccupations as a writer and as a commentator on his age. The first edition of this study appeared in 1977, and reviewers described it as 'criticism of the highest order' ( Joseph Conrad Today ) and 'an important book' ( Conradiana )
