'... explores its subject's life, intellectual and artistic contexts, works, and reception ...' English Literature in Transition 1880-1920 '... [Peters] has elucidated recurrent themes and issues, and, partly by his avoidance of jargon, has shown that one 'approach' demoted by theoretical pundits is the way of shrewd common sense. This is a handy and helpful volume. If you like labels, call it 'reconstructive.' Modern Language Review 'John Peter's volume offers a useful synthesis of what has been thought and said of Conrad to date. His chapter overview of Conrad's biography is balanced and judicious; it provides an overview of Conrad's fix on the trajectory of the author's life and career. ...is equally useful and insightful. ...Bulson's colourful opening line give us a sense of the book's down-to-earth approach and breezy style.'
