 About the Book 

Written from 1898 to 1919, the twenty-six essays collected in Notes on Life and Letters (1921) offer a kaleidoscopic view of Joseph Conrads literary views, politics, commitments to maritime traditions, and interest in the events of his day,MoreWritten from 1898 to 1919, the twenty-six essays collected in Notes on Life and Letters (1921) offer a kaleidoscopic view of Joseph Conrads literary views, politics, commitments to maritime traditions, and interest in the events of his day, including the Titanic disaster, the First World War, and the re-emergence of his native Poland as a nation state. The introduction gives the history of the gathering together of these diverse pieces into a single volume, traces the books reception, and offers new perspectives on its relationship to Conrads other writings. His occasional essays underwent multiple layers of unauthorized intervention by his typists, compositors and editors: this history is set out in the essay on the text and in the apparatus. The notes explain literary and historical references, identify places mentioned, and gloss foreign terms. Two maps supplement the explanatory material. This edition, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrads essays and reviews in a form more authoritative than any hitherto printed.
