This publication analyzes the representations of homosexuality in Conrad’s fiction, starting with Conrad’s existence and letters to teach that Conrad himself used to be, at the least imaginatively, bisexual. Conrad’s recurrent bouts of neurasthenia, his tough courtships, overdue marriage, and widespread expressions of misogyny can all be attributed to the truth that Conrad was once emotionally, temperamentally, and, possibly, even erotically more well-off with males than ladies.
Subsequent chapters hint Conrad’s fictional representations of homosexuality. via his research, Ruppel unearths that homoeroticism is endemic to the journey style and the way Conrad’s bachelor-narrators curiosity in more youthful males is homoerotic. Conrad students and people drawn to homosexuality and structures of masculinity should still all have an interest during this paintings.
