Reviews of : Romance by Joseph Conrad PDF Book
Inside this Book – Hard to imagine this was written in the same era as Nostromo. Conrad’s second collaboration with Ford, after the underrated Inheritors, is a straightforward…er…romance about pirates. In its style and texture Romance’s uncomplicated narrative and lack of psychological depth are more akin to Conrad’s last published novels (The Rescue, The Arrow of Gold, The Rover and the unfinished Suspense) than the weighty tomes that surround it in the first decade of the 20th century. Positives: strong plot, excellent sea descriptions, the cave scene and O’Brien is a broodingly malevolent villain. Downsides: the majority of the characters are one-dimensional and the issue of slavery is worryingly glossed over (this from the author who brought us An Outpost of Progress and Heart of Darkness). On balance it is probably better than watching a Pirates of the Caribbean movie but should only be read by Conrad/Ford fanatics.
Inside this book –Romance PDF Book by Joseph Conrad – “This is a disappointment to me. It doesn’t read like the Conrad I’m familiar with, something is definitely off and I feel like I must attribute that to Ford, someone I have never read before. Though I see similar themes to other Conrad works, they far more specific and his insights seem less penetrating. The whole thing is easier to take as it goes on, the story gets better and Kemp gets less annoying. But the ending is utterly ridiculous (and it easily could have been the best part of the novel). I thought the title was ironic until I read the ending. Still, I was engaged for a time and I certainly don’t feel like I wasted my time, I just don’t find it up to his usual standard. Whether Ford was there to help his English prose or whether for some other reason, I think the decision was probably bad for Conrad’s own artistic ambitions.”
