This largely chronological study of Conrad's major works is aimed at introducing the reader to the main characteristics and difficulties of Conrad's writing. Knowles discusses Conrad's 'tri-lingual imagination' and its relation to his struggles with the English language and writing for an English audience; the survey also analyses Conrad's unusual modes of narrative revelation, the hybrid genres of his different works, his persistent questioning of the bases of moral conduct, and finally the highly-wrought rhetoric of his art.
