Christopher GoGwilt (au). By placing Joseph Conrad’s fiction at the center of an exam’n. of the term “the West,” this study reconciles the major contours of Conrad’s work to show how the contemporary idea of the West emerged around the turn of the 20th cent. This study revises & clarifies our understanding of the imaginative geography & casts important light on a late-Victorian moment of ideological remapping. The discussion wends its way through a confluence of turn-of-the-cent. literary, cultural, & political phenomena & their reflections & refractions in Conrad’s art. The idea of the West continues to dominate the geopol. cartography of our day, legitimizing the privileges, obscuring the contradict., & protecting the interests of the imperial syst. it both demarcates & disguises.
