'This collection will prove invaluable for anyone wishing a balanced and well rounded study of Conrad.' Contemporary Review 'This collection is particularly impressive for shedding new light on its subject while also serving as the finest single introductory volume on Conrad presently available ... This volume will become required reading for Conrad scholars; it is certainly the first place I would send students new to Conrad's fiction.' English Literature in Transition, 1880-1920 'This very helpful Companion offers a series of essays on Conrad's life and major works, as well as on the topics of narrative, imperialism and Modernism, and concludes with a survey of his influence. With its index and lists of further reading it is organised for ease of use and will be profited from by a wide range of readers.' Forum for Modern Language Studies
