Joseph Conrad and the Imperial Romance.

  Joseph Conrad's early Malay fiction reflects his seafaring experiences in the East and expresses his misgivings about the assumptions of `white superiority', of imperial power, and of the possibilities for romantic heroism that characterize the late nineteenth-century imperial romance. In fact Conrad was deeply sceptical about its promises of wealth, glory, and heroic reputation.
