Abstract

"The five stories brought together in Tales of Unrest (1898) mark a turning point in the writer's career. Conrad's first short story collection evidences a writer firmly in control of his new craft staking a claim to diverse cultural and fictional territories. The introduction situates the writing of these stories in Conrad's career and discusses their sources and contemporary reception. The explanatory notes identify literary and historical references and real-life places, and indicate influences. Two maps and six illustrations enrich the explanatory matter. The essay on the text lays out the history of the work's composition and publication, details interventions by Conrad's typists, compositors and editors, and explains editorial policy. This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's stories and his preface to the collection in forms more authoritative than any so far printed"--

Abstract

J.-Y. Tadié circonscrit le genre du roman d'aventures, à partir de la définition du concept même d'aventure, irruption du hasard ou du destin dans la vie quotidienne qu'elle bouleverse. Il décrit la structure de ce type d'écrits au Moyen Age, à l'époque moderne et au XIXe siècle.

Abstract

Soldier heroes of the modern world have proved potent images of Britishness and the masculine. Soldier Heroes presents a ground-breaking exploration of the imagining of masculinities in adventure stories. Its analyses range across biographies and news reports, novels and play fantasies. Drawing on literary theory, cultural materialism and psychoanalysis, it traces a history of British heroic masculinities from nineteenth-century imperialism to the present, and examines their internalization in the lived identities of men and boys.
