Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), is ranked as one of the greatest prose writers in English literature. Critically famous for such works as Nostromo, Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, The Secret Agent and Under Western Eyes , Conrad has remained a figure of intense interest for modern readers. In many ways it is the conflicts reflected in Conrad's writings - romantic versus rationalistic, conservative versus anarchic - that mark their continuing appeal. Living, as he did, in a post-Darwinian age - with the decline of religious belief and its replacement by science - his work explores notions of pessimism and atavism. The clashes between "primitive" and "modern" cultures, and between the individual and society are themes that can be found throughout his work. The medallion edition of The Works of Joseph Conrad brings together all his novels and stories, with author prefaces and textual revisions. It includes Tales of Hearsay, Last Essays and the unfinished Suspense , as well as early collaborations with Ford Madox Hueffer.
