Under Western eyes : centennial essays( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Characterized by Conrad himself as his "most deeply meditated novel," Under Western Eyes enjoyed a warm reception on its publication in October 1911. In the century since it has rewarded readers with various pleasures. Exploring the intertwined subjects of personal morality, the nature of the State, national character and identity, and covertly digging into the tensions of his family's past, the novel is the last of Conrad's sustained excursions into overtly political territory. This collection of eleven essays considers Conrad's achievement from several perspectives. Opening with a provocative essay on the text's genesis, it surveys intertextual relations and influences, considers its ethical challenges, its psychological appeal to our time, and its contemporary reception and reception in Russia. Addressed to the scholar of literary Modernism, "Under Western Eyes": Centennial Essays offers a vivid snapshot of current critical technologies. This well-balanced collection should help the student and classroom teacher alike in pursuing further the novel's richly layered interests

Narrative ethics by Jakob Lothe( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While Plato recommended expelling poets from the ideal society, W.H. Auden famously declared that poetry makes nothing happen. The 19 contributions to the present book avoid such polarized views and, responding in different ways to the "ethical turn" in narrative theory, explore the varied ways in which narratives encourage readers to ponder matters of right and wrong. All work from the premise that the analysis of narrative ethics needs to be linked to a sensitivity to esthetic (narrative) form. The ethical issues are accordingly located on different levels. Some are clearly presented as thematic concerns within the text(s) considered, while others emerge through (or are generated by) the presentation of character and event by means of particular narrative techniques. The objects of analysis include such well-known or canonical texts as Biblical Old Testament stories, Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita, Jonathan Littell's The Kindly Ones, Ann Radcliffe's The Italian and Matthew Lewis's The Monk. Others concentrate on less-well-known texts written in languages other than English. There are also contributions that investigate theoretical issues in relation to a range of different examples"--

Joseph Conrad: Voice, Sequence, History, Genre 1) that narrative theory, and especially some of its more recent developments, can help critics generate greater insight into the complexities of Conrad's work; and (2) that a rigorous engagement with Conradian narrative can lead theorists to a further honing of their analytical tools.

The volume also provides multiple perspectives on major works such as Heart of Darkness and Lord Jim, a cluster of three essays on Nostromo and history, and an afterword by the editors that looks ahead to future work on the interrelations of Conrad and narrative theory. brings together essays by established critics of Conrad and by leading narratologists that explore Conrad's innovative uses of narrative throughout his career.
