Book Description


The Wordsworth Classics covers a huge list of beloved works of literature in English and translations. This growing series is rigorously updated, with scholarly introductions and notes added to new titles.

Set in the imaginary South American republic of Costaguana, this work is an illustration of the impact of foreign exploitation on a developing nation. As Sulaco, site of an English/American controlled silver mine establishes its independence, its ideals are inevitably compromised.

From Library Journal
This involved, philosophical novel is not for the casual listener, especially one who is supposed to be concentrating on the road ahead. Writing in 1904, Conrad invented a complex South American country with a turbulent history and a potentially explosive population, ranging from the wealthy gringo running the Sulaco silver mine to the poorest worker loading cargo on the docks. Although the story teems with lively characters, the dazzling figure of Nostromo eclipses them all. A natural leader?brave, handsome, and incorruptible?he naturally becomes the epicenter of the revolution that soon devastates Sulaco. With characteristic eloquence, Conrad has focused on the dramatic action of the revolution to explore challenging themes: capitalism, imperialism, revolution, and social justice. Unfortunately, this audio program, read by Frederick Davidson, is disappointing. Despite fine dramatic characterizations, the narrator's posh British accent is so pronounced that it often detracts from the text. Since Nostromo has also been narrated by Frank Muller (Recorded Books) and Wolfram Kandinsky (Books on TapeR), perhaps this version may not be the best choice.

From AudioFile
This abridgment of Joseph Conrad's classic keeps in mind that the story is as much about the fictional province of Sulaco and the San Tome silver mine as it is about Nostromo, the "incorruptible" sailor who ends up concealing a fortune in silver. Although Nostromo is a presence throughout the novel, his tale actually begins on Side six. It preserves much of Conrad's fine detail, background history of Sulaco, and prose style, making the listener almost forget that this is an abridgment. Joss Ackland speaks Conrad's descriptive passages with a clear, refined voice that brings an authoritative air to this fictional history, while giving its main characters rougher voices. J.A.S.

About Author
Joseph Conrad was born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski in Russian-occupied Poland on December 3, 1857. His parents were aristocrats and intensely nationalistic political activists who were exiled to Vologda, northeast of Moscow, for their opposition to tsarist rule. Józef's mother, Ewa, died in 1865 of tuberculosis, and his father, Apollo, succumbed to the same disease four years later. Józef was cared for by his uncle Tadeusz Bobrowski until the young man acted on a long-expressed desire to go to sea. In 1874 he left for Marseilles, where he began sailing for the French merchant service.

In 1878, in money difficulties and no longer able to sail on French vessels because he had not secured an exemption from military service in Russia, Conrad attempted suicide. After his recovery, he left Marseilles on a British ship and went to England, where he worked the route between Lowestoft and Newcastle. He arrived in England virtually without qualifications and with very little English, but he was able in a few years to earn his master's certificate in the British merchant marine and became a British national. Conrad traveled to Mauritius and Constantinople, worked on wool clippers from London to Australia, and sailed the waters of the Far East. These voyages were punctuated by long periods when he could not find suitable positions because of the decline in sail-powered transport in the age of the steamship.

Conrad began writing in English, which became his language of choice after his native Polish and French, although he complained of difficulties with English grammar and syntax. His voyages provided the background for much of his fiction. 'Youth' and 'Typhoon' draw on Conrad's personal experience with disasters at sea. In 1881, he became second mate on the Palestine, a ship that was rammed, caught in tempestuous gales in the English Channel, had its cargo of coal catch fire, and sank off Sumatra. His captaincy of the Otago from Bangkok in 1888 informs The Shadow-Line (1917) and the stories 'Falk' and 'The Secret Sharer.' Heart of Darkness (1899) is drawn from an expedition to the Belgian Congo in 1890. He was already working on a novel when he traveled to the Congo, where he expected to take command of a river steamer. The assignment failed to materialize, and Conrad fell dangerously ill. On his return to England, he was forced to find work as a ship's mate. He was able during this period of intermittent employment to devote more time to his writing, and in 1894 he submitted the novel Almayer's Folly to the publisher Fisher Unwin. Unwin published it in 1895 under the anglicized version of Conrad's Polish name.

Conrad was encouraged to continue to write by Unwin's reader Edward Garnett, although he went on applying for posts as a ship's captain. He finished The Outcast of the Islands in 1895 and in 1896 married Jessie George. They had two sons, Borys and John, born in 1898 and 1906. Constantly in need of more money, Conrad produced short stories and serialized his novels. Although plagued by physical illness and psychological problems, he established one of the most formidable bodies of work in the English language. His longer works include The Nigger of the 'Narcissus (1897), Lord Jim (1900), Nostromo (1904), The Secret Agent (1907), Under Western Eyes (1911), and Victory (1915). Nostromo, set in the imaginary South American republic of Costaguana, is considered by many critics to be Conrad's best work and by some to be the finest novel of the twentieth century.

From early in his career Conrad had the admiration of fellow writers--Stephen Crane, John Galsworthy, Henry James, and Ford Madox Ford, with whom Conrad collaborated on The Inheritors (1901) and Romance (1903). It was only after the success of Chance (1913), however, that his writing afforded him widespread recognition and relative financial security. He spent his declining years in Kent, often in ill health, and died on August 3, 1924, at his home near Canterbury.

(see here)
Joseph Conrad's Nostromo is a pretty impenetrable read and the television version, lavishly mounted by the BBC, was equally confusing to most viewers and as a result, almost nobody watched it. This unfortunately meant they also missed out on one of Ennio Morricone's finest scores and undoubtedly one of the finest scores for television ever written.
The score's undoubted high point is The Silver of the Mine, an outstandingly gorgeous effort for orchestra and wordless soprano, of course supplied by the wonderful Edda dell'Orso. It is written in the great tradition of themes such Once Upon a Time in the West and Once Upon a Time in America, but I think that it even surpasses those undeniable classics. Opening with gentle soprano and orchestra, this leads into a purely orchestral performance, while Morricone's knack for adding unusual extras to the orchestration is much in evidence in the later stages as he counterpoints the expansive beauty of the theme with short, high range trumpet fanfares. It doesn't sound a promising prospect, but rest assured that the result is extraordinary. The third verse, as such, again features Edda dell'Orso with the trumpet fanfares as well as occasional fast and short scales in the strings. When the theme climaxes, it is a moment of pure musical ecstasy that is a thrill that never palls.

The albums is worth purchasing on the strength of the Silver of the Mine alone, but there are of course many other highlights. The Tropical Variation introduces the album with a bouncing piano backing, decorated with pan pipe and shrill brass motifs and onto this is, a pair of successive descending scales is added. The dynamic of this idea is then beautifully offset as we move into the aforementioned Silver of the Mine. There other major idea is introduced in the titular track and is more sombre and thoughtful than the Silver of the Mine theme, but no less impressive - especially when gently intoned by the choir. This is used most notably in the For Emilia tracks (of which there are four, strangely) and has a more hypnotic and restrained feeling that nicely provides intimacy against more expansive theme.

For some reason, it was decided to release a double CD, which is unfortunate as there are two identical versions of The Silver of the Mine as well as a few other tracks which are very similar in nature. Cutting the repeat, plus one of the shorter cues could have allowed for a single 80 minute disc. Being a double CD makes the album somewhat more expensive than it might have been, which is bound to deter some from trying out what is a sublime score. It would be hard to choose between this and Morricone's earlier Secret of the Sahara for his finest, if not the finest TV score ever, but for sheer beauty, Nostromo is in a class of its own. An essential in any collection, outstanding. (see here, here)
