Editorial Reviews


"Peters's exploration of Conrad's unique impressionism...has changed the way I consider some key passages in Conrad's work. Peters is also admirably clear and systematic, and he writes interestingly about a large number of Conrad's novels and stories. The coverage of this slim volume is impressive and, overall, Conrad and Impressionism is worth a look for those interested in Conrad's philosophy."
Richard Ruppel, Viterbo University, South Atlantic Review

"John Peters's book increases the range of recent studies exploring the impact of nineteenth- and twentieth-century philosophy on Conrad's writing."

"Peters writes lucidly and concisely. He presents the case systematically, and provides a wealth of illustrative examples from Conrad. A newcomer to the topic...would find this succinct book readably informative."
Studies in the Novel

"An erudite inquiry into vital aspects of Conrad's art, an ambitiously synthesized survey of aesthetics, philosophy and politics based on a profound knowledge of Conrad's work..."
Joseph Conrad Today

"Copious references to contemporary literary scholarship and an impressive bibliography constitute a guide to the trail here laid down. Traversing it is not for the philosophically challenged, but it leads to the heart of a major literary career."

"...a stimulating might expect to hear gasps of surprise and wonder even from the most disciplined and wizened investigator."
English Literature in Transition 1880-1920

"An ambitious book...packed with intelligent ad hoc insights into Conrad's writing through a close examination of the techniques that characterize his narratives."
Modern Language Review

"Peters's book [...] marshals various perspectives on Conrad's work, philosophy, and sociopolitical outlook under the unifying rubric of literary impressionism. His arguments are hard to refute, and his evidence abundant."
Modern Fiction Studies

"An extremely valuable study to modernist and Conrad scholars with a philosophical orientation [...] A first-rate sutdy."
Journal of Modern Literature

"It would be valuable to graduate students interested in connections between literary and visual arts."

"Conrad and Impressionism is remarkable for its carefully composed logical structure and the precision of its arguments as well as for the well chosen definitions and examples which render the complex philosophical and ethical concerns of Conrad. John G. Peters has made a valuable contribution to Conrad studies, one upon which future scholars can build with assurance."
The Conradian

Book Description

In this book, John Peters investigates the impact of Impressionism on Conrad and links this to his literary techniques as well as his philosophical and political views. Impressionism, Peters argues, enabled Conrad to encompass both surface and depth not only in visually perceived phenomena but also in his narratives and objects of consciousness, be they physical objects, human subjects, events or ideas. Conrad and Impressionism investigates the sources and implications of Conrad's impressionism in order to argue for a consistent link between his literary technique, philosophical presuppositions and socio-political views.
