The Secret Agent

by Joseph Conrad

Wildside Press | March 1, 2004 | Mass Market Paperbound

The Secret Agent is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
Speaking of this novel, Conrad wrote, "The origin of _The Secret Agent_: subject, treatment, artistic purpose, and every other motive that may induce an author to take up his pen, can, I believe, be traced to a period of mental and emotional reaction. The actual facts are that I began this book impulsively and wrote it continuously. When in due course it was bound and delivered to the public gaze I found myself reproved for having produced it at all. Some of the admonitions were severe, others had a sorrowful note. I have not got them textually before me but I remember perfectly the general argument, which was very simple; and also my surprise at its nature. All this sounds a very old story now! And yet it is not such a long time ago. . . ."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow... If you've never read conrad before, read this. Most of his other books are about sailing, and the sea, but this one is about terrorism, and is very well done. It's the story of a man, his wife and her younger brother. It's also a tale of a terrorism, murder, betrayal, and utter desolation. Please, for the good of humanity, read this book. The english is rather high-brow, but all and all it is absolutely amazing.
