Nostromo (Centaur Classics) [The 100 greatest novels of all time – #50]

Written by Joseph Conrad

Joseph Conrad’s 1904 adventure novel, set amid the mist-covered mountains of a fictional South American republic, spins a colorful tale of capitalist exploitation and rebellion. The story begins halfway through the revolution, employing flashbacks and glimpses of the future to depict the lure of silver and its effects on men — corrupting and destroying some, revealing the strengths of others. Conrad’s deep moral consciousness and masterful narrative technique are at their best in Nostromo, one of his greatest works.
