9780199539031: Typhoon and Other Tales (Oxford World's Classics)

This volume contains "Typhoon," "The Secret Sharer," "Falk," and "Amy Foster." "Typhoon", a story of a steamship and her crew beset by a tempest, is a masterpiece of descriptive virtuosity and moral irony, while "The Secret Sharer" excels in symbolic ambiguity. Both stories vividly present Conrad's abiding preoccupation with the theme of solidarity, challenged from without by the elements and from within by human doubts and fears.

Conrad's experiences as a captain of the ship Otago in 1888 provided material for both "The Secret Sharer" and "Falk". "Amy Foster", written in 1901, is bleak and stark in its depiction of human isolation and incomprehension.

In a range of tones extending from the sombre to the radiant, Conrad's central preoccupations are displayed at their best, strangest, and most plangent in this selection of stories.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. TYPHOON * FALK * AMY FOSTER *THE SECRET SHARER The four tales in this volume share autobiographical origins in Conrad s experience at sea and his exile from Poland, the country of his birth. Typhoon is the story of a steamship and her crew beset by tempest, and of the stolid captain whose dogged courage is tested to the limit. In Falk a taciturn young woman is bizarrely courted by a tug-boat master who is haunted by a terrible secret. Amy Foster tells of an emigrant Pole struggling to overcome isolation and prejudice in England. The final tale, The Secret Sharer , is Conrad s most famous short story, a masterpiece of suspense and ambiguity. Giving sanctuary to a fugitive sailor, a young sea-captain risks his ship and his command in order to save him. This revised edition uses the English first edition texts and has a new chronology and bibliography. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
