Rate this:
Taking Joseph Conrad's short story "An Outpost of Progress" as its catalyst, this volume of essays brings to light new and contradictory readings of Conrad's approach to Africa. Key scholars consider several topics, including the relationship between Conrad's works and Disgrace , a novel by South Africa's leading author J. M. Coetzee; the role of the reader in Conrad's narratives and the writing of Chinua Achebe; and postcolonial texts from Africa and their intertextuality with Conrad's fiction. This volume present readers with issues that demonstrate the significance and relevance of Conrad's work in the 21st century and underscore his contribution to modernism and his inalienable position within postcolonial literature.
