Nostromo by Joseph Conrad( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the exotic South American republic of Costaguana, the San Tome silver mine provides opportunities for untold wealth and power. Yet amid the turbulence and brutality of Latin American politics, everyone associated with it - from the compromised English mine-owner Gould to the grasping businessman Holroyd, from the revolutionary Montero to the loyal and seemingly incorruptible worker Nostromo - becomes somehow irrevocably tainted. Nostromo is a grandiose epic, startlingly modern in its technique and political sophistication - and a masterpiece of tension, adventure and mystery ... this volume contains a chronology, further reading, notes, appendices (including the serial ending), a glossary and an introduction discussing the background to the novel, its portrayal of the corruption of language and history and its interplay between myth and modernity."--Back cover
The reception of Joseph Conrad in Europe by Robert Hampson( )

7 editions published in 2022 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Poland but living for most of his professional life in England and writing in English, Joseph Conrad was always as much a European writer as he was a British one and his work -- from Heart of Darkness to Nostromo and The Secret Agent -- has often been the focal point of discussions about the dawn of the modern age. With chapters written by leading international scholars, this book is a comprehensive survey of the reception, translation and publication history of Conrad's works throughout Europe. Covering reviews, critical discussion and adaptations across media, the book includes bibliographies of key translations in each of the European countries covered and a timeline of Conrad's reception throughout the continent."--
Le détail à l'oeuvre individu et histoire dans la littérature, les arts et les discours : [journée d'étude, Palaiseau, École polytechnique, 31 mars-1er avril 2011( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Partant de réflexions récentes sur la valeur heuristique du détail (Jacques Revel, Carlo Ginzburg, Daniel Arasse), les auteurs des contributions rassemblées dans cet ouvrage se sont donné une démarche commune : entrer dans le détail de textes et d'oeuvres les plus divers pour repérer ce qui s'y dit et ce qui s'y joue du rapport de l'individu à l'histoire. Attentives aux enjeux formels, leurs analyses " rapprochées " observent ce qui par le détail se raconte du rapport de l'individu aux pouvoirs ou aux structures, de ses possibilités d'existence et marges de manœuvre, de ses stratégies de construction ou reconstruction de soi face à des événements traumatisants comme aux pesanteurs de la longue durée

The reception of Joseph Conrad in Europe( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Born and brought up in Poland bilingually in French and Polish but living for most of his professional life in England and writing in English, Joseph Conrad was, from the start, as much a European writer as he was a British one and his work - from his earliest fictions through Heart of Darkness, Nostromo and The Secret Agent to his later novels - has repeatedly been the focal point of discussions about key issues of the modern age. With chapters written by leading international scholars, this book provides a wide-ranging survey of the reception, translation and publication history of Conrad's works across Europe. Covering reviews and critical discussion, and with some attention to adaptations in other media, these chapters situate Conrad's works in their social and political context. The book also includes bibliographies of key translations in each of the European countries covered and a timeline of Conrad's reception throughout the continent."
