Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed as one of Joseph Conrad's finest literary achievements, this is the story of a young man unwittingly caught in the political turmoil of pre-Revolutionary czarist Russia.

A gripping novel that ultimately questions our capacity for moral strength and the depths of human integrity. This new edition includes commentary and a reading group guide.

Synopsis:

Conrad deftly depicts the political turmoil in Russia in 1911 and its psychological repercussions in this novel about a student unwittingly caught in revolutionary intrigue. Attending St. Petersburg University, and preparing himself for a career in the czarist bureaucracy, Razumov suddenly finds himself enmeshed in a secret plot that will ultimately test his moral strength and the depth of his integrity.
