Book Information


Title: Conrad, Language, and Narrative
Written By: Michael Greaney

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.
