  • The New Cambridge Companion to Joseph Conrad

    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 fi eld 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. Chapters on Conrad’s autobiographical writings, Heart of Darkness and ‘The Secret Sharer’ consider recent trends in literary and cultural studies. A chronology and an updated guide to further reading serve to provide essential orientation to a large and complex fi eld. This volume is the ideal starting point for students new to Conrad’s work as well as scholars wishing to keep abreast of current issues.

    J. H. Stape, late Senior Research Fellow at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, London, taught at universities in Canada, France and Asia. The author of The Several Lives of Joseph Conrad (2007) and editor of The Cambridge Companion to Joseph Conrad (1996), he edited several of Conrad’s texts for The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Joseph Conrad and was a co-editor of Conrad’s Collected Letters (Volumes 7 and 9). He also published on E. M. Forster, William Golding, Thomas Hardy, Frank Harris, Angus Wilson and Virginia Woolf.
