This book seeks to renew interest in Joseph Conrad's moral imagination. Not literary theory but the dignity of creative literature impels the author's reflections on Conrad's novels in their ?varied shades of moral significance.? In illuminating interpretations the author focuses on the consequences of moral darkness and moral warfare as he proceeds to uncover Conrad's basic ideas and meaning. The book shows that morality in Conrad's work is not reducible to an absolute category but must be apprehended in the forms of both moral crises and the possibility of moral recovery enacted in their complexity and tensions. Guiding a reader's travels to the furthest realms of Conrad's imagination so as to penetrate to the heart of the novelist's moral vision is one of the author's dominant aims. These travels take the reader to The Secret Agent, Lord Jim, Victory, Under Western Eyes, Chance, and The Rover. It also contains a new chapter on the Heart of Darkness.
