Sinopse

This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading. Under Western Eyes (1910) is a tale of two cities—St. Petersburg and Geneva—and of political and moral revolutions. It is one of Joseph Conrad’s most suspenseful works and his most politically and psychologically insightful.  Set in 1904, it opens with an act Conrad calls “characteristic of modern Russia”: the assassination of a high official of the autocratic tsarist regime. Under Western Eyes probes deeply into that repressive society where unremitting tyranny provokes revolutionary terrorism. Published five years after Russia’s abortive 1905 Revolution, the novel clearly anticipates the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.
