Joseph Conrad's letters to R.B. Cunninghame Graham by Joseph Conrad( Book )

9 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Conrad's friendship with R.B. Cunninghame Graham was stimulating and in many ways paradoxical. Cunninghame Graham was a remarkable figure - a Scottish aristocrat who lived variously as a South American cowboy, a fencing master, a socialist Member of Parliament and a highly respected writer of travel, histories and short stories. His political beliefs, to which he was deeply and passionately committed, contrasted sharply with Conrad's pessimistic conservatism. They became friends in 1897, when Cunninghame Graham first wrote a letter of admiration to Conrad, and they remained friends until Conrad's death in 1924. The letters to Cunninghame Graham are the most illuminating sequence of letters from Conrad to any of his correspondents. He struggles to define his philosophical and political beliefs in relation to Graham's radical and provocative opinions. The letters also provide comments on Conrad's work, notably The Nigger of the 'Narcissus', Heart of Darkness, Nostromo and The Secret Agent, and show how Graham became a central figure in Conrad's life and helped to sustain him in some of his most strenuous literary struggles

Mogreb-el-Acksa; a journey in Morocco by R. B Cunninghame Graham( Book )

41 editions published between 1898 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R. B. Cunninghame Graham's trek into the Moroccan interior beyond Marrakesh is a classic example of British adventure travel. His ostensible purpose was to reach the forbidden city of Tarudant, where it was claimed no Christian had ever set foot, and which he attempted while variously disguised as a Turkish doctor and a sheikh from Fez. In the end, Cunninghame Graham's mission was a failure: halfway to his goal, he was captured and held prisoner for four months in the medieval castle of Kintafi in the Atlas Mountains. But his loss was the reader's gain, as Edward Garnet points out in his introduction, for "the episode of this enforced detention in [a] strange semi-Arcadian, semi-feudalistic scene, while the traveller watches day after day the panorama of Berber life...is unique in the literature of travel". Part history, part social commentary as only the British wrote it, Cunninghame Graham's account of his travels makes fascinating reading nearly a century later

"Put a red sash round his waist and a red handkerchief round his head and he would look exactly like one of them buccaneering chaps that made men walk the plank and carried women off into captivity!" So said another captain about Captain Johns' new mate aboard the Sapphire, the fine ship now at dock in London. With hair dark as a raven's wing, the new mate little knew what would come of shipping with superstitious Johns, who believed in ghosts -- no more than he knew what strange events awaited him on the rolling seas ahead. "The Black Mate" and the other Tales of Hearsay show Joseph Conrad at his most masterfully fascinating
