Description

This unique edition brings together twelve classic Conrad tales which mirror, in form and theme, Conrad's own ambiguous and hybrid status in imperial England. This edition is the first to reprint these stories as they first appeared in popular magazines of the time. William Atkinson's introduction explores the "double-voiced" nature of Conrad's narratives as well as his ironic treatment of the adventure-romance genre popularized by his contemporaries, Stevenson, Kipling, and Rider-Haggard.
