Lord Jim : an authoritative text ... by Joseph Conrad( Book )

27 editions published between 1949 and 2000 in English and held by 599 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
Joseph Conrad : betrayal and identity by Robert Hampson( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through attention to incidents of betrayal and self-betrayal in his fiction, this book traces the development of Conrad's conception of identity through the three phases of his career: the self in isolation, the self in society and the sexualized self. It shows how the early fiction negotiates the opposed dangers of the self-ideal and the surrender to passion; how the middle fiction tests the ideal code psychologically and ideologically; and how the late fiction probes sexuality and morbid psychology. It challenges the conventional construction of Conrad's career in terms of 'achievement and decline', and makes illuminating use of Laingian psychology

Cross-cultural encounters in Joseph Conrad's Malay fiction by Robert Hampson( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume focuses on cross-cultural encounters, cultural identity and cultural dislocation in this fiction, paying particular attention to issues of 'race' and gender. It also situates Conrad's writings about Malaysia in relation to earlier English accounts of the archipelago. It considers work by Mundy, Keppel, Wallace and Clifford, which Conrad had read, as well as exploring the discursive formation within which that work was produced. At the same time, it also indicates something of the region's history of cross-cultural encounters." "The book draws on new historicism, as well as postcolonial and postmodern theory, to explore the central problem that Conrad addressed in his fiction: how to represent another culture."--Jacket

Victory by Joseph Conrad( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Axel Heyst, a dreamer and a restless drifter, believes he can avoid suffering by cutting himself off from others. Then he becomes involved in the operation of a coal company on a remote island in the Malay Archipelago, and when it fails he turns his back on humanity once more. But his life alters when he rescues a young English girl, Lena, from Zangiacomo's Ladies' Orchestra and the evil innkeeper Schomberg, taking her to his island retreat. The affair between Heyst and Lena begins with her release, but the relationship shifts as Lena struggles to save Heyst from the detachment and isolation that have inhibited and influenced his life. Marked by a violent and tragic conclusion, Victory is both a tale of rescue and adventure and a perceptive study of a complex relationship and of the power of love
