Lord Jim : an authoritative text ... by Joseph Conrad( Book )
27 editions published between 1949 and 2000 in English and held by 594 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 )
20 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 481 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 )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 291 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

Frank O'Hara now : new essays on the New York poet ( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
"Frank O'Hara's writing is central to any consideration of twentieth-century American poetry. This collection of essays, the first to be dedicated to O'Hara in nearly two decades, asks why O'Hara remains so important to twenty-first-century readers and writers of poetry. The book is transatlantic in tone, combining American scholarship with a wide sampling of British writers. For many, O'Hara's distinctive appeal depends on his witty depictions of urban experience, his relationship to the painters of Abstract Expressionism and the exhilarating immediacy of his poetic voice. Yet these chatty and approachable qualities coexist with testing engagement with currents in European and American modernism. Frank O'Hara Now offers a comprehensive picture of the poet, presenting, the conversational insouciance of the writing alongside it more intransigent features." -- Publisher's description

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
