Annotated Critical Bibliography of Joseph Conrad
This bibliography offers a survey of Conrad scholarship and criticism in English from about 1914 to 1990. It covers five main areas of material: primary texts; introductory studies; full-length criticisms and general essays; studies of individual works; and criticism devoted to particular aspects of Conrad's work. The book is a selective guide to the more important and substantial contributions to the field and as such is intended for undergraduates, research students and teachers rather than academic specialists. The book aims to reflect the wide range of critical approaches to Conrad's work. The author provides a critical guide to the sources and includes a number of works with which he takes issue.
