Example text

And now, unlike the letter's pat allusion, Conrad manages the double vision that typifies his fictional scriptures, both following and departing from his source.  Mathews, "Ironic Symbolism in Conrad's 'Youth,' " SSF 11 (1974):118.  But his disillusionment is greater than the Preacher's, whose God of Judgment becomes Marlow's Night. '' Thus the allusion is a piece of dramatic irony, instructing us to doubt Marlow's wisdom.  The preacher's son is Conrad's Preacher in The Secret Agent.  Who more romantic than the Perfect Anarchist?

Instead of an instance of the sacred entering history, the mysterious characters become a symbol of the void.  Whalley and Gould forget that the writing on the wall for God's correspondents always bodes ill.  hang it out in letters of fire in that empty sky for a sign of hope and terror—a portent of the end' " (p.  She renders exactly the biblical context, that the mysterious characters signify terror for the oppressor who receives them, hope for the interpreting oppressed.

" Watts is evidently unaware of Well's source.  This tension between scorn and sympathy for traditional Judeo­Christian conceptions, this active agnosticism, controls Conrad's art until Under Western Eyes.  If so, what could better illustrate Jim's incomprehension of his case than his scriptural mixed metaphor?  On two other occasions he makes it mirror a deranged personality.
