Under western eyes by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
238 editions published between 1910 and 2011 in 15 languages and held by 2,597 libraries worldwide
"First published in 1911, Under Western Eyes traces the experiences of Razumov, a young Russian student of philosophy who is uninvolved in politics or protest. Against his will he finds himself caught up in the aftermath of a terrorist bombing directed against the Tsarist authorities. He is pulled in different directions - by his conscience and his ambitions, by powerful opposed political forces, but most of all by personal emotions he is unable to suppress. Set in St. Petersburg and Geneva, the novel is in part a critical response to Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, but it is also a startlingly modern book. Viewed through the Ẁestern Eyes' of Conrad's English narrator, Razumov's story forces the reader to confront the same moral issues: the defensibility of terrorist resistance to tyranny, the loss of individual privacy in a surveillance society, and the demands thrown up by the interplay of power and knowledge." "This new edition is based on the English first edition text, and has a new chronology and bibliography."--BOOK JACKET.

Notes on life and letters by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
107 editions published between 1921 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 2,055 libraries worldwide
"Written from 1898 to 1919, the twenty-six essays collected in Notes on Life and Letters (1921) offer a kaleidoscopic view of Joseph Conrad's literary views, politics, commitments to maritime traditions, and interest in the events of his day, including the Titanic disaster, the First World War, and the re-emergence of his native Poland as a nation state." "The introduction gives the history of the gathering together of these diverse pieces into a single volume, traces the book's reception, and offers new perspectives on its relationship to Conrad's other writings. His occasional essays underwent multiple layers of unauthorized intervention by his typists, compositors and editors: this history is set out in the essay on the text and in the apparatus. The notes explain literary and historical references, identify places mentioned, and gloss foreign terms. Two maps supplement the explanatory material. This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's essays and reviews in a form more authoritative than any hitherto printed."--BOOK JACKET.

Chance : a tale in two parts by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
147 editions published between 1913 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 2,003 libraries worldwide
"Chance (1914) was the first of Conrad's novels to bring him popular success and it holds a unique place among his works. It tells the story of Flora de Barral, a vulnerable and abandoned young girl who is 'like a beggar, without a right to anything but compassion'. After her bankrupt father is imprisoned, she learns the harsh fact that a woman in her position 'has no resources but in herself. Her only means of action is to be what she is.' Flora's long struggle to achieve some dignity and happiness makes her Conrad's most moving female character." "Reflecting the contemporary interest in the New Woman and the Suffragette question, Chance also marks the final appearance of Marlow, Conrad's most effective and wise narrator. This revised edition uses the English first edition text and has a new chronology and bibliography."--BOOK JACKET.
