The Several Lives of Joseph Conrad PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Several Lives of Joseph Conrad free pdf Joseph Conrad's impact has been so profound and far-reaching that, eighty years after his death, he remains an essential cultural reference point. Such phrases as 'heart of darkness' and 'The horror! The horror!' have entered the language, often cited without an awareness of their original contexts. His popular legacy extends to Latin American fiction, to the spy novel, to the terrorist and anarchist character, and to film. The writers he has influenced range from T. S. Eliot to William Faulkner to V. S. Naipaul and John Le Carre. For a writer of 'difficult' fiction he has enjoyed a remarkably wide impact, yet as Marlow proclaims in "Lord Jim" of the figure whose story he tells, 'he was one of us' and so Conrad remains in fascinating ways.
