Joseph Conrad's novels, short stories, plays and non-fiction have circulated in defective texts since their original publication. Typists misread his handwriting, editors intervened to correct his grammar and he himself made mistakes in drafting. The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Joseph Conrad, based on research into the original documents, supplies readers for the first time with critical texts that represent the writer's own work as reliably as possible. Each volume includes an Introduction, situating the work in the author's career and examining its contemporary reception, authoritative Explanatory Notes and Glossaries, an essay on the text, an Apparatus detailing the evolution of the work and relevant illustrations and maps. This Edition will encourage revaluation of individual works and the writer's canon.
