Description

I had the first vision of a twilight country which was to become the province of Sulaco, with its high shadowy sierra and its misty campo for mute witnesses of events flowing from the passions of men shortsighted in good and evil. Thus Conrad described Nostromo. His fictional country, Costaguana, is ablaze with men battling for power and a fortune in silver. He perfectly creates characters at every level of society, from English empire-builder Charles Gould to handsome Italian sailor Nostromo who, like the country, is about to be consumed by guilt and corruption.
