  • Introduction
    • Abstract: From August 13–16, 2014 on the downtown campus of Fairleigh-Dickinson University–Vancouver, the Joseph Conrad Society of America and FDU-Vancouver jointly sponsored an international conference, Joseph Conrad: Conflict and Solidarities. The conference theme recognized the centenary of the opening of the First World War, and the resulting papers explored not only the political, but also the psychological, historical, philosophical, and aesthetic antagonisms and harmonies characterizing Conrad’s works and life.This double issue of Conradiana offers a selection of these papers, beginning with the first of the conference’s four plenary talks. Mark D. Larabee, building upon work begun in his book Front Lines of ... Read More

  • Conrad and the Spaces of War
    • Abstract: When did the Great War become a World War? The answer is not quite as straightforward as one might think. Of course, the war could not be called the First World War until the start of the second. In the United States, while newspapers initially referred to the “European War,” the American entry in 1917 turned the conflict, for them at least, into the “World War.” In Britain, the favored name at the time was the Great War. However, as early as August 1914 the term “World’s War” was also in use.1 Although British and German forces fought outside Europe, what globalized this war was, politically, the steady addition of belligerents: the Ottoman Empire later in 1914, Italy and Bulgaria in 1915, ultimately including ...

  • Conrad, the ‘Polish Problem’ and Transnational Activism
    • Abstract: This essay examines Conrad’s political essays written between 1905 and 1916.1 This examination involves three key terms—nationalism, internationalism and transnationalism—which will be explored and differentiated. First, there is the nineteenth-century nationalism that found expression in the unification of Germany in 1871 and the unification of Italy in the same year; that was manifested in the independence struggles of South American states (which Conrad touches on in Nostromo by evoking the figures of Bolivar and Garibaldi); and, in its imperialistic aspect, was the motive force behind the Congress of Vienna of 1814–15 and the First World War. Secondly, there is the rise of the idea of internationalism as ... Read More

  • Reclaiming Conrad from His Editors: The Case of an Outcast of the Islands
    • Abstract: (For my friend, John Stape)This essay concerns itself with Conrad’s second novel, An Outcast of the Islands, first published in March 1896, and uses the novel to address the tangled issue of what we mean when we say we are reading “Conrad.” To what extent are we reading the text that Joseph Conrad wrote—the “authorial” text—and to what extent are we reading what is now called a “social” text, bearing the traces and interference of typists, compositors, and editors? As a community of readers of Conrad, the stakes could hardly be higher.To illustrate the nature of the problem, let me turn to a well-known example of editorial interference. The three-part division of “Heart of Darkness” has been found structurally ... Read More

  • Conrad’s Accusative Case: Romanization, Changing Loyalties, and
           Switching Scripts
    • Abstract: A much-cited letter to his friend R. B. Cunninghame Graham from May 1st 1898 finds Joseph Conrad characteristically complaining about his work: “Wrist bad again, baby ill, wife frightened, damned worry about my work and about other things, a fit of such stupidity that I could not think out a single sentence—excuses enough in all conscience, since I am not the master but the slave of the peripeties and accidents (generally beastly) of existence” (Collected Letters, 2, 59). Besides the characteristic Conradian difficulty in “think(ing) out a single sentence,” this letter is also famously revealing for sharing Conrad’s views on the Spanish-American war in a series of reflections, beginning with “By all means Viva ...

  • An Act Cruel and Absurd: Conrad’s Romantic Aesthetic and Realist
           Ethic
    • Abstract: Conrad’s Midlands breakfast was hardly disturbed when he was told of the “shot heard round the world” on 28 June 1914—“dismissed” because of “a repugnance to consider murder a factor in politics” and “an ethical sense that an act cruel and absurd should be also useless” (NLL 142). He “attended so little to the march of events,” that on 25 July only three days before Austria-Hungary’s guns opened up beginning the continental war, he set off for Poland with his family and the Retingers. Ten days later on 4 August Britain entered the war. After a harrowing journey across Europe, the Conrads left Genoa in a Dutch mail steamer on 25 October, arriving back in England on 9 November. That they got back at all was a near ... Read More

  • Whose Youth? Whose Death?: Disrupting the Unequal Encounter Between an
           Ascending West and a Decaying East in Joseph Conrad’s “Youth”
    • Abstract: In his survey of the significance of the maritime tradition in Joseph Conrad’s life and writing, Mark Larabee singles out three aspects that had the greatest impact on the writer: trade, fidelity, and craft. In fact, these three dimensions were interlocking in the formation of the British Merchant Service that in turn strengthened the growth of the British Empire: the commercial trade consolidated the economic cornerstone of colonial enterprise; the fidelity of seamanship shaped the solidarity and loyalty of the British people to dedicate themselves to her imperialist cause; the technologies of craftsmanship empowered the overseas expansion of the empire’s territories. When viewed through the lens of the British ... Read More

  • Problems with Theory of Mind in Victory
    • Abstract: “this fair, palpitating handful of ashes and dust”1Early and later readers of Victory alike have traced a contest in the text between philosophical detachment and withdrawal on the one hand, and social or emotional engagement on the other, with dramatic irony to be found in the quick deaths of Morrison and Lena after Heyst takes an active interest in them, a satisfactorily pessimistic denouement for a text published during the eruption of World War One. Cedric Watts notes in The Deceptive Text: “A central irony of the main plot [of Victory] (and one which had recurred in Conradian novels from Almayer’s Folly onwards) is that the man who benevolently intervenes in the lives of others actually sees disaster follow ...

  • Silence, Progression, and Narrative Collapse in Conrad
    • Abstract: Silence is often a powerful presence and explicit theme in Conrad’s fiction; some of his works even seem to revolve around this intriguing subject. Nevertheless, the significance and value of silence in these texts have been widely disputed. Martin Ray generally attributes a positive value to silence in Conrad’s fiction, nonfiction, and in several late nineteenth century writers; for him, the salutary silences of Captain MacWhirr and of Old Singleton onboard the Narcissus and are exemplary; concerning the latter, the narrator ruefully notes that “the men who could understand his silence were gone” (‘Narcissus’ 25; cited in Ray, 57). By contrast, Sarah Dauncey points out that in “Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, and ... Read More

  • Conrad and Lafcadio Hearn: Two Observant Wanderers Writing in Their
           Adopted Countries
    • Abstract: In September 1922, Conrad, with kind hospitality, received a Japanese guest, Hidaka Tadaichi, professor of English literature at Waseda University, Tokyo. Hidaka had been a student of Lafcadio Hearn’s in Tokyo, and lived not far from him. According to Professor Hidaka’s memoirs “A Visit to Conrad,” Hidaka inquired of Conrad whether he had ever read any of Hearn’s works. Conrad answered, “Yes, I have read a few, such as Kokoro and Out of the East. They were very interesting. Reading them, I don’t know how many times I thought I’d like to go to Japan if there were a chance” (Okuda 82). Later in their conversation Conrad returned to this topic by asking Hidaka about Hearn’s family matters, such as whether his wife was ... Read More

  • The Phantom of the Ego: Modernism and the Mimetic Unconscious by Nidesh
           Lawtoo (review)
    • Abstract: This is an ambitious study of the relationship between mimesis and the ego that delineates a line of thought that begins with Friedrich Nietzsche and descends through Joseph Conrad, D.H. Lawrence, and Georges Bataille. During the journey Lawtoo draws in perspectives from schools of psychology, anthropology, and psychoanalysis and makes brief detours through the ideas of Gabriel Tarde, Lucien Lévy-Bruhl, James Frazer, Trigant Burrow, Gustave Le Bon, Pierre Janet, Émile Durkheim, Gilles Deleuze, Jean Baudrillard, Jürgen Habermas, and Alexandre Kojève, among others. An extensive range of reading informs the book. My knowledge of Bataille’s work is limited, and I cannot assess the chapter devoted to his theories except ... Read More

  • Joseph Conrad and the Anxiety of Knowledge by William Freedman (review)
    • Abstract: In Joseph Conrad and the Anxiety of Knowledge, William Freedman stages a return to the obscure, evasive and enigmatic, an aspect of Conrad’s poetics that has become something of a critical commonplace. If he returns to a question that has inspired such canonical works as Allon White’s The Uses of Obscurity (1981) and Paul B. Armstrong’s The Challenge of Bewilderment (1992) it is to demonstrate that existing treatments of Conrad’s obfuscations are lacking: “Accounts of evasiveness and indeterminacy that restrict causation to a calculated reflection of certain beliefs about the limitations of language or human comprehension overlook the darkly serious play of reluctance, aversion, self-deception and recoil.

  • Under Western Eyes ed. by J.G. Peters (review)
    • Abstract: The Broadview edition of Joseph Conrad’s Under Western Eyes, edited by J.G. Peters is a complete edition of the novel in a compact and reasonably priced format which can be recommended to all readers of Conrad for its well-chosen bibliography, historical references and photographs—the edition also includes some helpful primary documents written by Russian revolutionaries and not included in other editions of the novel—but should be read above all for its excellent critical introduction. In his examination of the novel’s apparently complex structure. Mr. Peters considers the positive effects of Conrad’s narrative methodology: “The benefit of the choice to use the teacher of languages to relate Razumov’s experience ... Read More
