about


The Secret Agent: A Simple Tale is a novel by Joseph Conrad published in 1907. The story is set in London in 1886 and deals largely with the life of Mr. Verloc and his job as a spy.  The Secret Agent is also notable as it is one of Conrad's later political novels, which move away from his typical tales of seafaring. The novel deals broadly with the notions of anarchism, espionage, and terrorism.   It portrays anarchist or revolutionary groups before many of the social uprisings of the twentieth century. However, it also deals with exploitation, particularly with regard to Verloc's relationship with his brother-in-law Stevie.
This edition has been formatted for  your reader, with an active table of contents.  It has also been annotated, with additional information about the book and Joseph Conrad, including an overview, plot summary, background, themes, literary significance, influence, adaptations, biographical and bibliographical information.
