Conrad in perspective essays on art and fidelity by Zdzisław Najder ( )
17 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 2,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Zdzislaw Najder, one of the world's leading authorities on Joseph Conrad and author of the major biography "Joseph Conrad: A Chronicle" (1983), is widely acclaimed for his particular insights into Conrad's Polish background. The fruits of thirty years of Conrad study appear in this landmark volume of his essays, which explore a wide range of topics: Conrad's national and cultural heritage; his fictions, from the unfinished "Sisters" and "Lord Jim" to "The Secret Agent"; his attitude towards Russia in general and Dostoevsky in particular; his concepts of man and society; and the role of the idea of honour in his work. In a series of more general essays, Najder goes on to place Conrad's work within a broad European philosophical, political, and literary context. "Conrad in Perspective" offers new insights into the life and work of one of the twentieth century's greatest novelists by one of his most perceptive critics

In Conrad's haunting tale, Marlow, a seaman and wanderer, recounts his physical and psychological journey in search of the enigmatic Kurtz.

Marlow's struggle to fathom his experience involves him in a radical questioning of not only his own nature and values but the nature and values of his society
A personal record by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Personal Record (1912) both documents and fictionalizes Joseph Conrad's early life and the opening stages of his careers as a writer and as a seaman. It is also an artistic and political manifesto. The introduction traces Conrad's sources and gives the history of writing and reception. The essay on the text and the apparatus set out the textual history. The notes explain literary and historical references, identify places, and gloss foreign terms. Four maps and a genealogical table supplement this explanatory material. This edition of A Personal Record, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's reminiscences and the volume's two prefaces in forms more authoritative than any so far printed."--BOOK JACKET
