Conrad's Trojan Horses by Tom Henthorne
Book DescriptionWith references to his work appearing everywhere from the "New Yorker" to The Simpsons, Joseph Conrad remains one of the twentieth century's most widely discussed literary figures. And yet it may be that an abundant scholarship has pigeonholed Conrad as an early modernist. Tom Henthorne counters that Conrads work can be best understood in relation to that of such early twentieth-century writers as S. K. Ghosh and Solomon Plaatje postcolonialists who developed innovative ways of cloaking their anti-imperialism when working with British publishers. In "Almayer's Folly", "An Outcast of the Islands", and his first short stories, Conrad attacks imperialism overtly. Yet as he began to work with more conservative publishers to acquire a larger, imperial audience, he developed a Trojan Horse strategy, deliberately obfuscating his radical politics through his use of multiple narrators, irony, free indirect discourse, and other devices that are now associated with modernism. Sensitive to the breadth of his prospective audience, Henthorne offers an engaging and accessible analysis of Conrads canon, from the early novels and short stories to the major works, including "The Nigger of the Narcissus", "Heart of Darkness", "Lord Jim", and "Nostromo". He also considers critical responses to Conrad and the influence Conrad has had upon modernist and postcolonial writers.
