    This book shows us how Conrad and Joyce manipulate representations of imperialist belief in the sacred to indict Western culture for its racist colonization. This striking reading of modernism emphasizes Conrad's and Joyce's use of chaos in general and pilgrimage in particular in terms of mapmaking, racial denigration, and strategies of power. A collection of Conrad's most enduring work, edited by Pulitzer Prize finalist Michael Gorra A great novelist of the sea, a poet of the tropics, a critic of empire and analyst of globalization, a harbinger of the modern spy novel, an unparalleled observer of the moments in which people are stripped of their illusions-Joseph Conrad is one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.

    While there is much to admire in Conrad and Empire, Ross's concluding claim to having presented "a more balanced and complete understanding" of Conrad's work misrepresents this book (). Conrad and Empire is an important supplement to the contribu tions of other scholars—Benita Parry, Patrick Brantlinger, Andrea. Conrad in Literary History 3. Conrad in England 4.

    Writing in the heyday of the British Empire, Conrad drew upon his experiences in the French and later the British Merchant Navy to create novels and short stories that reflect aspects of a worldwide empire while also plumbing the depths of the human soul. His works depict trials of the human spirit by the demands of duty and honour. Franz Conrad von Hötzendorf. Architect of the apocalypse. Boston: Humanity Press. ISBN Wawro, Geoffrey ().
