Title: The Secret Agent (1907)
Description: UK, Methuen & Co. 1907. Hardback, Upstairs by RP A5 Red. Ref ZKVQ Hardback back red covers gold text to spine in average condition, some bumps to edges, Brown spots to page edges and end cover, sticker to first page, owners name and Gallery library under, stated second edition October 1907. The Secret Agent is set in the seedy world of Adolf Verloc, a storekeeper and double agent in late-Victorian London who pretends to sympathize with a group of international anarchists but reports on their activities to both the Russian embassy and the British government. As he is drawn further into a terrorist bombing plot, his family also becomes involved, with devastating consequences. Based on a real-life failed anarchist plot, The Secret Agent is both intimately engaged with its historical moment and profoundly relevant today. This new Broadview Edition helps to recreate the historical context that informed Conrad's preoccupations with global terrorism, human degeneration, the relativity of time, and the position of women. Used Acceptable.
