Conrad, Language, and Narrative

Michael Greaney, University of Lancaster, UK


In this re-evaluation of the writings of Joseph Conrad, Michael
Greaney places language and narrative at the heart of his literary
achievement. As a trilingual Polish expatriate, Conrad brought a
formidable linguistic self-consciousness to the English novel and
tensions between speech and writing are the defining obsessions of his
career. Greaney examines a wide range of Conrad's work, combining
recent critical approaches to language in post-structuralism with an
impressive command of linguistic theory.
