This bibliographical study records a wealth of significant references connecting Joseph Conrad to American writers (and vice versa) and illuminating his influence on their work. It lists and fully annotates any book or essay that discusses the relationship between Conrad and American writers. Chapters deal with Conrad's relation to writers ranging from James Fenimore Cooper to Ernest Hemingway. The final section examines Conrad's influence on a number of modern American writers, in addition to his works portrayed by American filmmakers and his visit to America. The indexes list the authors in the bibliography, American writers and their works in relation to Conrad, and Conrad's own works. A concise chronology of Conrad's life and an introductory essay surveying the findings of the bibliography and assessing their significance appear at the beginning of the volume.
