Lord Jim, Hardback Book

Description

Since its first appearance in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine in 1899 and 1900, Lord Jim (1900) has been acclaimed as a modernist masterwork.

Its narrative innovations and psychological complexity make it one of the most influential fictions written in the twentieth century and it has challenged and stimulated generations of readers as well as writers on and of fiction.

This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's novel and its preface in a form more authoritative than any so far printed.

The Introduction situates the novel in Conrad's career and traces its sources and contemporary reception.

The explanatory notes identify literary and historical references and real-life places and indicate Conrad's main influences.

Glossaries, maps and illustrations are provided for further context, as well as a new transcription of 'Tuan Jim: A Sketch', a partial draft of the novel, and appearing in print for the first time, Conrad's contract for the book.
