Description - Conrad's Narratives of Difference by Lissa Schneider-Rebozo
Though Joseph Conrad's works are notorious for the absence or dearth of female characters, this book demonstrates that Conrad often represented women and femininity in fugitive ways. Arguing that gender and difference are conceptual and performative, Lissa Schneider examines many of Conrad's best-known fictions to show how his use of female allegorical imagery, oppositional narrative strategies and hybrid generic structures challenge late Victorian ideologic (and generic) norms and goals. Schneider's analysis illustrates how Conrad's characters negotiate the 'shadow-line' of Victorian paradigms of gender, race and class to clear a space for a modern revisioning of difference.
