Conrad and Empire

 In Conrad and Empire, Stephen Ross demanding situations the orthodoxy of the final thirty years of Conrad feedback by way of arguing that to target problems with race and imperialism in Conrad’s paintings is to overlook the bigger and extra vital engagement with constructing globalization undertaken there.

Educated at a Jesuit College, a physician by profession, a monarchist, exiled to Brazil since 1919, pagan and sceptic by conviction, Latinist by education, Reis lives outside time.

The fall into plurality is paid for by the loss of identity. Ricardo Reis chooses the other possibility latent in his master’s work3. Reis is a recluse as Campos is a vagabond. His hermitage is a philosophy and a form.
