Synopsis: Here is a rich and varied collection of Joseph Conrad's finest writing. The two novels, two novelettes, and five short stories contained in this distinguished anthology are dramatic proof of the way Conrad followed his own literary standard -a standard that proclaimed the novelist's highest responsibility to be "a chronicler of the adventures of mankind amongst the dangers of the kingdom of the earth." These novels and stories are magnificent examples of the vast and imaginative range achieved by a man whose work now holds a primary place in modern English literature. The sweeping panorama of people, places, and events observed and recorded by Joseph Conrad during his roving existence is brilliantly reflected in these TALES OF THE EAST AND WEST. The story Prince Roman recalls Conrad's earliest years in his native Poland. His adventures in the Orient are related in his first novel, Almayer's Folly, and in the masterful shorter works, Karain and The Planter of Malata. Conrad's long years at sea are chronicled in Falk; his arrival in England as a young Polish exile in Amy Foster. An Outpost of Progress centers around Conrad's fateful journey to the Congo; and his preoccupation with political despotism and treachery is strongly evident in The Warrior's Soul and in his splendid novel, The Secret Agent. Edited and introduced by Morton Dau¬wen Zabel, a leading authority on Joseph Conrad, this magnificent collection is a handsome companion volume to Conrad's Tales o f Land and Sea. Together, the two books bring a lasting and rewarding knowledge of Joseph Conrad and his writing.
