Rethinking Joseph Conrad's Concepts of Community : Strange Fraternity Hardback
Rethinking Joseph Conrad's Concepts of Community uses Conrad's phrase 'strange fraternity' from The Rover as a starting point for an exploration of the concept of community in his writing, including his neglected vignettes and later stories.
Drawing on the work of continental thinkers including Jacques Derrida, Jean Luc-Nancy and Hannah Arendt, Yamamoto offers original readings of Heart of Darkness, The Nigger of the 'Narcissus', The Rover and Suspense and the short stories "The Secret Sharer", "The Warrior's Soul" and "The Duel".
Working at the intersection between literature and philosophy, this is a unique and interdisciplinary engagement with Conrad's work.
