Artikelomschrijving

This Norton Critical Edition includes four storiesùtwo set on stormy seas, two on calm seas, all four based on the same incidentùthat speak to each other in interesting ways. The stories in this Norton Critical Edition maintain the connection and sequencing that Joseph Conrad saw among them. In his Author as Noteö to aTwixt Land and Sea, Conrad writes of his two Calm-piecesö (The Secret Sharerö and The Shadow-Line) and his two Storm-piecesö (The Nigger of the Narcissusö and Typhoonö). This edition is based on the first English book edition for the stories and the first American edition for the Author as Noteö for The Shadow-Line, Typhoon,ö and The Secret Sharer.ö The stories are accompanied by explanatory annotations, a note on the texts (including a list of textual emendations), and a preface. Backgrounds and Contextsö brings together relevant correspondence and contemporary reviews from both British and American sources. Also included are documents related to Conrad as sources for the stories, among them Charles Arthur Sankey as Ordeal of the Cutty Sark: A True Story of Mutiny, Murder on the High Seas.ö To help readers navigate, the editor includes a glossary of nautical terms as well as diagrams of the kinds of ships that appear in the stories. Criticismö includes fifteen essays representing both new and established voices. The essays are arranged by story, with the focus on Conrad as major themesùcolonialism, narrative, gender, and race. Albert J. Guerard, Lillian Nayder, Mark D. Larabee, Fredric Jameson, F. R. Leavis, and John G. Peters are among the contributors. A chronology of Conrad as life and work and a selected bibliography are also included.
