9780141183091: Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard (Penguin Modern Classics)

In the backwater of Costaguana in South America, Charles Gould is determined to make a success of the silver mine left to him by his father. But his dreams of wealth are thwarted as the country is plunged into revolution, torn apart by rival warlords who want the mine and its riches for themselves.

"Nadelhaft negotiates the impasse between existential and political responses to the book. In reaffirming that the personal is the political, she demonstrates how Nostromo represents the process whereby 'imperialism transmits the virus of alienation.' Joined with the historical apparatus so characteristic of Broadview Editions, such theorizing genuinely reopens a book that hasn't yet received its due."--Michael Coyle

From the Publisher:

The Broadview Editions series is an effort to represent the ever-changing canon of literature in English by bringing together texts long regarded as classics with valuable, lesser-known literature. Newly type-set and produced on high-quality paper in trade paperback format, the Broadview Editions series is a delight to handle as well as to read.

Each volume includes a full introduction, chronology, bibliography, and explanatory notes along with a variety of documents from the period, giving readers a rich sense of the world from which the work emerged.
