9780140432282: The Secret Agent: A Simple Tale (English Library)

From the seed of an actual attempt to blow up the Greenwich Observatory, this book recreates the world of the secret agent. The world of law and order is mirrored in its underworld, a squalid terrorist landscape inhabited by, among others, the professor, who carries a bomb in his pocket.

Review:

"An outstanding edition. First-time readers will welcome the eloquent introductory essay, which places The Secret Agent in the context of both Victorianism and modernism, as well as the very useful supplementary materials on anarchism and degeneration. And those already familiar with the novel will be prompted to re-read it in light of Agathocleous's claim that Conrad, along with his New Woman contemporaries, is exploring marriage and the condition of women as well." Amanda Claybaugh, Columbia University"

Book Description:
