Almayer's Folly: A Story of an Eastern River

Almayer's Folly: A Story of an Eastern River Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in eastern Borneo during the 1880s, Almayer's Folly recreates the conflicts of imperial Europe with the colonized East Indies through Kaspar Almayer's personal tragedy: his loss of both his daughter to her native lover and his dream of finding gold. This edition presents Joseph Conrad's first novel freed from seven layers of publishers' and typists' corruptions. Complete textual and contextual histories, full annotation and two regional maps are provided. This is the text, established through modern textual scholarship, as Conrad would have liked it to have appeared in 1895.
