In his evocation of the republic of Costaguana, set amid the exotic and grandiose scenery of South America, Conrad has created a masterpiece of tension, adventure and mystery.
The novel captures the tragic and brutal essence of Latin American politics as each characters potential for good is turned to corruption or defeat. Startlingly modern in both its symbolic technique and its political sophistication, 'Nostromo' embodies Conrad's own pessimistic view of the world.
