Joseph Conrad's Lord Jim: Reconsiderations

Ali Albashir Mohammed Al-Haj

Abstract


The present study aims at reconsidering critically Joseph Conrad's Lord Jim. Joseph Conrad is a great master of English prose who writes normally of the sea, of the Eastern islands, of the English character as seen against a background of the exotic or faced with difficulties. The power of Conrad's feelings for Jim, as well as the force of his judgment  against him, are the responses  of a man mightily involved on two planes, one personal and one public , with the dynamics of good and evil. The evil in Lord Jim is one thing on the surface and another beneath our grasp. It is of course the evil of men who have no sense of loyalty to anything.
