Nostromo A01 By (author) N Joseph Conrad B01 Edited by N Veronique Pauly B09 Series edited by N J. H. Stape 198 129 23 372 BC Paperback / softback 544 Penguin Classics Penguin Books Ltd London United Kingdom FA Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945) 1.3 FBC Classic fiction First published in 1904, this book deals with Latin America. It offers a picture of an insurrectionary society and the opportunities it provides for moral corruption. Nostromo, published in 1904, is one of Conrad's finest works. Nostromo -- though one hundred years old -- says as much about today's Latin America as any of the finest recent accounts of that region's turbulent political life. Insistently dramatic in its storytelling, spectacular in its recreation of the subtropical landscape, this picture of an insurrectionary society and the opportunities it provides for moral corruption gleams on every page with its author's dry, undeceived, impeccable intelligence. Joseph Conrad was born in the Ukraine in 1857 and grew up under Tsarist autocracy. In 1874 Conrad travelled to Marseilles, where he served in French merchant vessels before joining a British ship in 1878 as an apprentice. In 1886 he obtained British nationality. Eight years later he left the sea to devote himself to writing, publishing his first novel, Almayer's Folly, in 1895. The following year he settled in Kent, where he produced within fifteen years such modern classics as Youth, Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent and Under Western Eyes. He continued to write until his death in 1924. 02082007 02 RRP including tax GB GBP 9.99 0.00 9.99 This price includes a tax element GB 20 Available GARD Y Nostromo, published in 1904, is one of Conrad's finest works.
