About the Authors
  • Joseph Conrad's centrality to modern literature is well established. The New Cambridge Companion to Joseph Conrad provides essential guidance to varied developments in the field of Conrad studies since the publication of The Cambridge Companion to Joseph Conrad (1996). The volume's thirteen chapters offer diverse perspectives on emergent areas of interest, including canon formation, postcolonialism, gender, critical reception and adaptation. Likewise, chapters on Conrad's autobiographical writings, Heart of Darkness and 'The Secret Sharer', consider recent trends in both literary and cultural studies. A chronology and an updated guide to further reading serve to provide essential orientation to a large and complex field. This volume is the ideal starting point for students new to Conrad's work as well as for scholars wishing to keep abreast of current issues.

    • Emphasis on new critical approaches and areas opening up for study thanks to developments in technology
    • Focus on major classroom texts: Heart of Darkness and 'The Secret Sharer'
    • Updated review of scholarship on Conrad

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The New Cambridge Companion to Joseph Conrad complements rather than replaces the 1996 Cambridge Companion to Joseph Conrad … The first [Companion] set a very high standard. Its successor has lived up to that standard - both in terms of the quality of its articles and also in terms of the impeccable editing skills of J. H. Stape. This is a book that can be recommended warmly and without reservation. Order it for the library and buy an extra copy for your own bookshelf: you will want to refer to it in the days that come."
    Jeremy Hawthorn, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
