Beschreibung

Joseph Conrad and the Reader is the first book fully devoted to Conrad's relation to the reader, visual theory and authorship. This challenging study proposes new approaches to modern literary criticism and deftly examines the limits of deconstructionist theories, introducing groundbreaking new theoretical concepts of reading and reception.

AMAR ACHERAIOU (PhD, Sorbonne Nouvelle) has published numerous articles on Joseph Conrad, modernist literatures, postmodernist thought, and postcolonial theories. He is the author of Rethinking Postcolonialism: Colonialist Discourse in Modern Literatures and the Legacy of Classical Writers and editor of Joseph Conrad and the Orient. He is currently completing a book entitled Demystifying Third Space Narratives: Hybridity in Postcolonial and Globalization Discourses.
