Joseph Conrad And The Subversion of Absolutes

Auther : Jilali El-Koudia

The intention behind this research is to demonstrate that the major settings: sea, city and jungle, in Joseph Conrads works are always interrelated in one way or another. These images are modified in the light of each other, and in this way they acquire their full meaning.

The area of their conjunction is therefore the focal point of this investigation, and here the interest lies in their function as metaphors.

The technique adopted by the author-mainly his particular manipulation of the point of view and irony-is fundamental to the understanding of their implications.

This approach of dealing with the interrelationship between sea, city and jungle offers new insights into Conrads mind and art. By his sophisticated use of irony the writer brings the three opposed images into an interesting paradoxical unity and expresses his moral vision of the universe-a vision that no longer upholds the old concept of Absolutes.
