Joseph Conrad's "Lord Jim": Reconsiderations
Al-Haj, Ali Albashir Mohammed
Advances in Language and Literary Studies, v5 n6 p212-215 Dec 2014
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.
