About this title


Language and Being treats Conrad's child¬hood, Almayer's Folly, and An Outcast of the Islands more fully than any previous study. Students of Conrad especially will welcome the radically new interpretations which the work offers of The Nigger of the "Narcissus," Heart of Darkness, and Lord Jim. And perhaps all students of literature will respond to the fact that, although the book chiefly engages the relation between the personality of Conrad and his early fiction, Language and Being more generally is concerned with the idea of the novel as a form of autobiography and thus with the continuity between character and literature, personality and performance.
