Nostromo

by Joseph Conrad

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group | June 2, 1992 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review
A novel, in which Charles Gould returns to South America determined to make a success of the inheritance left to him by his father, the San Tome mine. But his dreams are thwarted as the country is plunged into revolution.

Conrad''s foresight and his ability to pluck the human adventure from complex historical circumstances were such that his greatest novel, Nostromo -- though nearly one hundred years old -- says as much about today''s Latin America as any of the finest recent accounts of that region''s turbulent political life. Insistently dramatic in its storytelling, spectacular in its recreation of the subtropical landscape, this picture of an insurrectionary society and the opportunities it provides for moral corruption gleams on every page with its author''s dry, undeceived, impeccable intelligence.
