Abstract

Serialized in Ford Madox Ford's English Review in 1908-9, A Personal Record (1912) both documents and fictionalizes Conrad's early life and the opening stages of his careers as a writer and as a seaman. It is also an artistic and political manifesto. This volume provides the most accurate and scholarly edition available. Mistakes introduced by typists and earlier publishers have been corrected to present the text as Conrad intended it. The introduction traces Conrad's sources and gives the history of writing and reception. The essay on the text and the apparatus set out the textual history. The notes explain literary and historical references, identify places, and gloss foreign terms. Four maps and a genealogical table supplement this explanatory material. This edition of A Personal Record, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's reminiscences and the volume's two prefaces in forms more authoritative than any so far printed.

Abstract

Lawtoo offers new readings of Joseph Conrad's novels and the postcolonial and cinematic works that respond to his oeuvre. Lawtoo argues that Conrad's fascination with doubles urges readers to reflect on the two sides of mimesis, that once joined, reveal Conrad's Janus-faced fictions as powerfully relevant to our contemporary world of global violence and environmental crisis.
