With a new introduction and an updated bibliography, this reissue celebrates the classic novel that set the style for a whole new class of literature: novels of an outcast from civilization finding refuge in the tropics. This is a story of dramatic action and psychological penetration, a work that critic Morton Danwen Zabel calls an example of Conrad's "central theme ... the grip of circumstances that enforce self-discovery and its cognate, the discovery of reality of truth."
