Summary
"The fiction of Joseph Conrad is shaped by late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century constructions of masculinity, yet it also calls those constructions into question by revealing fractures and contradictions in conceptions of the 'masculine' and the 'feminine'. Drawing on feminisim, gay studies, film theory, literary theory and cultural history, Andrew Roberts analyses the role of masculinity in all of the Conrad's better-known novels, as well as some of his shorter works and lesser-known texts." "Each pair of chapters relates masculinity to a major historial, aesthetic or cultural category: imperialism and 'race'; the body; the problems of truth and knowledge within modernity; the aesthetics and politics of the visual. Rather than attacking or defending Conrad, the author reads both with and against the grain of the fiction, arguing that the important question is not 'was Conrad sexist?' but 'how do we read Conrad now, so as to learn from differences and continuities in the understanding of the masculine?'"--Jacket
