The secret agent by Joseph Conrad( )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in late-nineteenth-century London, Joseph Conrad's intense political thriller anticipates the espionage novels of such writers as Graham Greene and John le Carre. It concerns a double agent who is charged with provoking the radical group he has infiltrated into an act of sabotage that will bring about its own destruction. In a marvelously drawn underworld of political and criminal intrigue, Conrad brilliantly explores the confused motives that lie at the heart of terrorism. Extraordinarily modern in the ironic view it takes of human affairs, this masterly tale of conspiracy builds to a climax that the critic F.R. Leavis called "one of the most astonishing triumphs of genius in fiction.""--Jacket

''Wir sind doch nicht in einer Abenteuergeschichte für Jungen', widersprach ich. Sein spöttisches Flüstern machte mich betroffen. 'Wahrhaftig nicht!'' Dieser Band vereint zwei der unbestrittenen Meistererzählungen von Joseph Conrad. Beide Male geraten die Protagonisten durch unglaubliche Ereignisse in höchste Gefahr und begegnen dabei sich selbst. Ihre Schiffe sind auf See zum Halten gekommen, doch damit beginnt erst eine ganz andere Reise, die Reise des jugendlichen Herzens zu seinen Abgründen und die Entdeckung seiner eigenen Stärke. Es sind Initiationsgeschichten von farbigem Realismus und symbolischer Wahrheit, die hier in glänzenden Übersetzungen neu präsentiert werden. Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), eigentlich Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, war polnischer Abkunft, diente bei der französischen, dann bei der englischen Handelsmarine, wurde Kapitän und befuhr bis 1894 die Meere Südamerikas und des Fernen Ostens. Dort spielen viele seiner Romane und Erzählungen, die gleichermassen durch ihre genaue Beobachtungsgabe und ihre psychologische Meisterschaft bestechen

A personal record by Joseph Conrad( )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Personal Record (1912) both documents and fictionalizes Joseph Conrad's early life and the opening stages of his careers as a writer and as a seaman. It is also an artistic and political manifesto. The introduction traces Conrad's sources and gives the history of writing and reception. The essay on the text and the apparatus set out the textual history. The notes explain literary and historical references, identify places, and gloss foreign terms. Four maps and a genealogical table supplement this explanatory material. This edition of A Personal Record, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's reminiscences and the volume's two prefaces in forms more authoritative than any so far printed."--BOOK JACKET
