Decoud and Nostromo, like the book itself, are engaged through the first half of their stories in discovering the flaws and corruption of their society, and there is certainly a lot of that!.
I could never take sides, didn't trust anyone, and didn't really like anyone either. Most of what goes on is, to put it bluntly, ruthless.
Politically, this is a serious work, and just goes to show what can happen when the people you think are in charge, are just as much the scoundrels as the scoundrels themselves.
And yet the novel somehow presents that actions are taken admirably, and with morel. I can understand the determination of each and every character, even though I couldn't really care less of the consequences.
Through backstory, historical facts on the region, flashbacks and anachrony, Conrad's stylistic innovation gives the reader plenty, and I mean plenty, to chew on.
His lavish storytelling on civilization and social conventions is so well done, it has me thinking of him wondering around south America with map and compass looking for some inspiration.
And that's why in the end Nostromo was worthy of four stars. As somewhere in there is an adventure story, just without any real hero's.
It's no Moby Dick, or Robinson Crusoe, but does walk the same path, just in a darker and more complex way. Nostromo on the whole may be a difficult, unconventional novel, and in anyone else's hands, might not have worked.
They have their law, and their justice.

As a student in class, we were given a cartoon strip version of animal farm , this differed in one way from the original - at the end instead of simply observing how the pigs and the men became indistinguishable - the animals rise up in revolt through the whole bunch out and restart the cycle with a different species promoted to the leadership of the free world..
The most striking feature of the text is that Conrad gets bored with a conventional linear narrative and chops it up in different ways.
Events in the few few pages are revisited from a different perspective, towards the middle of the book and towards the end Conrad tells the political ending through flashback, the reader must infer some detail and make allowance for the peculiarities of the specific narrative voices in each case.
An effect of this is to suggest that the detail is irrelevant, the big story about the country of Bird shit coast, so I loosely render Costaguana into English, is about international interests, structures and habits of power, ultimately avarice wins and while avarice is unlikely to take your confession with a cigarette drooping out of the corner of its mouth before you are dragged out and shot, it is violent and destructive enough in its own way, trumping here with ease the nineteenth century ideal of nationalism and patriotism with the simple logic that if you have enough money or more accurately access to international credit you can buy the most modern guns and make your own country -all you need do then is invent a new flag.
There is a vision of the silver rich mine: She saw the San Tome mountain hanging over the campo, over the whole land, feared, hated, wealthy; more soulless than any tyrant, more pitiless and autocratic than the worst government; ready to crush innumerable lives in the expansion of its greatness p.
The archbishop advises his flock to think on eternal suffering, which in the context of the history of the Bird shit coast seems unnecessary advice - but he himself is infected with the same avarice in the form of desire for the restitution of the landed wealth of the church.
One might wonder about politic,s but from early on we are shown that the political ideals that had half starved, near naked men fight and win armed with knives tied to sticks in the service of Garibaldi for a united Italy are out manoeuvred by Cavour, the only relief is that money can wash away the incipient proto-fascism of the admirers of Napoleon III too.
Love also seems coloured by wealth, Nostromo's relationship with his designated wife demonstrated by gifting her the silver buttons off his jacket as something of sufficient value to her.
Dr Monygham loves Mrs Gould, but his love is a kind of injury, felt as pain and a feeling he can only appreciate because of the experiences that have left him with PTSD.
The shadow of de Tocqueville's opinion that all new regimes are built out of the bricks of the preceding one hangs over the narrative, escape from patterns and socialisation into violence, coercion and extortion is not to be found here.
One thread in the fabric of the twentieth century has been to hold men like Charles Gould up as heroes, but for Conrad, he is an adventurer - a member of a foreign legion, essentially alien and uncaringly destructive for all his claim of having been born 'here' implies some kind of kinship with the other citizens.
In short this novel is like a great bird that loosened its bowls across ideals of the nineteenth century, the vigorous splatter of which reveals the pattern of the twentieth century perhaps for all of us, since the banks must make their five percent, and to borrow their money you must meet their conditions what ever your own values.
I wonder having finished what Conrad might have made of the prospects of independent Poland, on the strength of this novel, I suspect he'd have felt no excess of optimism.
Setting: bird shit coast - the country of Heart of darkness having achieved independence. From the beginning Cavour and Garibaldi.
Repression and violence. Power over gangs - backed up by violence as means to obtain more power - minister of war. Weakness of ideals in the face of power politics.
Technocracy - steam ships named after gods - a bit above it all. The mine itself is violence - a tear in the landscape - dynamite- 'if I can't have it no body can the continuous political changes, the constant 'saving of the country', which to his wife seemed a puerile and bloodthirsty game of murder and rapine played with terrible earnestness by depraved children p73 , yet this is a game we are all obliged to play but you weren't born here Mr Gould to Mrs Gould Kleptocracy.

But for all of its length, the novel, after the first dense, foundation building 50 pages or so, reads quickly. Published in , the book has the feel of a modern novel.
Gould has no intention of ever letting that happen again, so he takes a different approach, inviting outside investors American, and others to get the mine running again, with a backup plan that involves a lot of dynamite.
With a new, liberal government in place, it looks like everyone is making money. Yet another revolution occurs, and the province of Sulaco the richest in the country falls under siege.
Fortunately Sulaco is protected by its geography, and what follows is a race against time, with several factions vying for control of the country — and the silver.
The cast of characters Conrad uses to tell his story seems vast, but the individual treatment is never shallow. Oh, some most?
Generals, sailors, crazy priests, revolutionaries, nihilists, bandits, women of various natures, are all revealed in their damaged glory. Gould himself, not really good or evil, is a mechanical man, a total materialist, who, oddly, is married to a secular saint of sorts, Emilia.
There were times I wondered about this odd match, but in the end I figured Charles represented the ultimate project for Emilia. The result is a sterile standoff.
He gets the job done, whatever it is, always. His reputation is paramount. But much of this is self-serving. When, through an accident, fate pushes the silver into his lap, he makes the wrong choice, and that choice eats at him throughout the rest of the novel, compounding itself into multiple bad choices, with the final, fatal choice linked to love.
Some have complained about the late love story in the novel. Conrad, Nostromo A splendid story of romanticism, adventure and vice. Conrad employs an intricate narrative structure, intertwining four character studies and differing points of view around Sulaco, an imagined South American country, a ticking bomb with a violent past.
He perfectly contrasts these against the fabulous scenery of mist-hidden mountains and a silver mine. The novel begins in the midst of " He was ruined in every way, but a man possessed of passion is not a bankrupt in life.
The novel begins in the midst of things with frequent flashbacks and some glimpses forward, as information is gradually revealed. A master of suspense and designer extraordinaire of complex plots, Conrad thereby transforms an otherwise typical tale of romantic adventure into a quite serious study of human nature in adversity, with themes of capitalism and imperialism and revolution.

On the plus side, we delve into the minds and struggles of a larger cast of characters This is a character study of Europeans remaking themselves in the New World, in this case the fictional South American country of Costaguana.
The flip side of that is a diffusion of focus and a long traverse getting to know them before significant events occur that converge their pathways and challenge them to change their ways or fall by the wayside.
In other words, the tale can try your patience a bit waiting for people to get unstuck in their ways. The modernist elements in the writing that impressed me for a book published in include hopping among the perspectives of several key characters, with some interludes with an omniscient narrator and some playing with linearity in the timeframe.
Gould is the inheritor of a silver mining concession from his wealthy British ancestors, who were more into the shipping business of their steamship fleet than the big challenges of mining.
While the Spanish for three centuries made treasures from the mine through brutal employment of slave labor and coerced labor, Gould applies his engineering training to make a more efficient and humane operation.
Thus, the people mostly love him, and the provincial government and local businesses appreciate the boon to the economy. For a long time, income from the concession keeps the line of dictators at the distant capitol relatively happy through payment on the development investment they forced on him and ongoing bribes.
However, the prospect of a successful revolutionary coup brings such stability to an end. With the fear of rebel insurgents taking the town, the peasants react by rioting and assaults on the homes and businesses of the upper classes.
We come to wonder how noble Gould and Nostromo really are. In the case of Nostomo, some of his comments suggest a chafing in his soul from resentment of being exploited without suitable reward.
Is the whole enterprise of extracting riches from this land doomed to the forces of corruption and excesses inherent with all colonial endeavors?
Regardless of who ends up in power, there is the thorny problem of keeping the large quantity of silver ingots not yet shipped out to buyers from being snatched by individuals from either side with their own greed in mind.
Conrad sold this story in serial form for a magazine. To satisfy such readers, he pulls off some great surprises for the ending.
Along the way, his well-developed characters each undergo significant development to make the necessary choices to adapt and survive the treacherous events of the tale.
Some rise to the occasion to make a moral stance, some get their just deserts, some get undeserved rewards, and some tragically pay with their lives.
I was most moved when the prose suddenly lept off the page with some eloquent description of geography or insight into reality by his characters.
Here is a small sample of his marvelous crafting of the English language despite growing up in Poland: Don Jose Avellanos depended very much upon the devotion of his beloved Antonia.
He accepted it in the benighted way of men, who, though made in God's image, are like stone idols without sense before the smoke of certain burnt offerings.

I tell people I liked Heart of Darkness, but there's this vague air of uneasiness that I can't quite put my finger on: I've read it three times but I don't really remember it.
And here I am at Nostromo, which is about a revolution! And secret treasure! This is exciting! And here's the thing: it fucking isn't. Here's Joseph Conrad's d Wait a minute, is this what Joseph Conrad is?
Here's Joseph Conrad's deep, dark truth: he's boring. It sneaks up on you because he writes about exciting things. A voyage into the heart of darkness to meet the mighty Colonel Kurtz.
A secret agent. A man who goes around with explosives strapped to him and a deadman switch at all times. The plot summaries sound exciting.
But you get to it and there are no scenes! It's just descriptions. It's a lot of talk. It's boring. If it were more exciting, here's what it would be about: This guy Nostromo is a mythically brave Capataz de Cargadores, which is another thing that sounds more exciting than it is, it just means he's in charge of the guys who unload ships.
He's entrusted with smuggling some of this rich white guy's treasure - a lighter full of silver - out of town when a revolution hits. It's a dangerous job.
Things go awry. This is a lighter. It's just a boat. The treasure is your classic briefcase from Pulp Fiction. It's a test, right?
It's temptation. Every man in the book is tested against the treasure. Conrad's not interested in women. Monagham, who was tortured in his past by a different dictator, view spoiler [redeems himself in his own eyes by protecting it.
It sounds like a big walloping adventure tale. But in practice it's just a shitload of talking and not very much doing.
Also there's a bit at the end with a lighthouse that feels like a totally disconnected short story that Conrad just scotch-taped on.
Look, when there are scenes - like the riveting night-time flight of the lighter - they're incredibly good. Dark, too. I mean literally, Conrad might be the greatest writer ever of scenes that take place in darkness.
You end up feeling like if Conrad could get his head out of his own ass, he'd be a good writer. But he can't do it.
He can't just tell you the story; he has to go explaining it to you. So I'm going to stop denying it: it's not me, it's him.
Joseph Conrad is a writer of boring books. View all 4 comments. An almost perfect Novel. I can't think of but a handful of writers Dostoevsky, Kafka, Melville who have written a better book.
Sep 30, Czarny Pies rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Readers who are already deep into the Conrad catalogue. Recommended to Czarny by: Prof.
Hughes put it on a modern novel course that I took. Shelves: english-lit. Nostromo is a very fine book and a great pleasure to read.
The first reason is that if you are interested in hearing the opinions of their favourite authors and in Nostromo certainly has a lot of things to say about very many topics.
Second, many people are fascinated by Conrad's analysis of United States as an Imperial Power in Latin America. Unfortunatley, because of Nostromo's good qualities it often makes it way onto to undergraduate course lists where it does not belong.
In order to air his Nostromo is a very fine book and a great pleasure to read. In order to air his views on many of the great politic issues, Conrad invents a fictious country called Costaguana that bears no resemblance to any single Latin American country that ever existed.
Conrad wants to express his thoughts on Garibaldi and his followers. For this reason he gives us an expatriate Italian patriarch who fought with Garibaldi.
The problem with this is that at the time the largest Italian expatriated community in Latin was in Buenos Aires.
There were essentially none in Panama although in other respects Costaguana is made to look like Panama. Costaguana like Panama was extremely isolated from the capital and bitterly resented that the politicians in the capital were stonewalling the project of their region.
Panama at the time simply did not have the level of culture that Costaguana does. What Conrad does very well in Nostromo is to make Europeans and North Americans reflect upon themselves as Imperial powers and upon the Imperial process.
However, his setting is an artificial construct with no more reality than one of the planets that Luke Skywalker visited. Nostromo is a good book but not terribly appropriate for undergraduate readers who could easily get mislead into thinking that Conrad was talking about a specific time, place and event.
Jul 14, Dale rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction , favorites , adventure , latin-america. Nostromo was a difficult read for me. I started this book many years ago and gave up after the first 50 pages.
This time I plowed through, and I'm glad I did. There's a lot of depth to this novel, but you don't see it until about halfway in.
The story takes place in a fictional South American country called Costaguana at the turn of the 20th century. An Englishman named Charles Gould has inherited a ruined mining concession, and undertakes to restore it, mostly as a means of sticking a thumb in t Nostromo was a difficult read for me.
An Englishman named Charles Gould has inherited a ruined mining concession, and undertakes to restore it, mostly as a means of sticking a thumb in the eye of the corrupt Costaguana government that caused the ruin of the mine, and the ruin of Gould's father.
The title character, Nostromo, is an Italian sailor named Gian' Battista Fidanza, who works as the cargo manager at the port of Sulaco, the city where the action takes place.
He is a man of nearly superhuman ability and moral courage, seen as indispensable by the European owners and managers in Sulaco.
Despite his great value, his financial rewards are few. The Gould mining concession is an irresistible prize for the Costaguana government.
A few generals stage a military coup, claiming to be democrats and men of the people, with the aim of seizing the mine's wealth.
Charles Gould will have none of it, and would rather destroy the mine than have it fall into the hands of the brigands who are coming to seize it.
So at one level the novel addresses issues of colonialism, and in a way that I'm not too happy about. The locals are characterized as thieves, lazy, indigent, greasy, unkempt, venal, crude, and so on, while the Europeans are, for the most part, depicted as idealistic, selfless, beleaguered, and enlightened.
But, as always with Conrad, the picture is not quite so cut and dried. Nostromo, and his would-be adopted father Giorgio Viola, an ex captain in the army of Garibaldi, a dedicated republican in the old sense meaning in favor of liberty , see the Europeans as the exploiters that they are - of course, they themselves are European, but have a moral and philosophical bias towards the downtrodden.
And the Europeans themselves are shown to be obsessed by their need to extract the maximum wealth from the country, while treating the local people as mere means towards that end.
The real interest of the novel is in its psychological portraits of the principal characters. Conrad is comfortable with complexity of character, and his characters are never paper cutouts - each one of the major characters in this novel have conflicting desires, and the novel is in some ways a working out of those internal conflicts.
Actually there is one exception to this: Captain Mitchell, the local agent for the main shipping company in Sulaco, is a completely self unaware person, who fancies himself a person of deep perception and great courage, but possessing neither.
He serves as a kind of quasi-comic foil to the real players: Nostromo, Charles Gould and his wife Emily, Martin Decoud, Giorgio Viola and his wife and daughters, and Dr.
This is a novel very well worth reading. Conrad stands out amongst authors of his era for the way that he embraces psychological and social ambiguity.
He was a modern writer in that sense, and a realist. View all 9 comments. I've tried. I really have. But after one short story The Secret Sharer and four novels Heart of Darkness, The Secret Agent, Lord Jim and now, Nostromo , I've come to the considered conclusion that I really don't appreciate Conrad.
I admire him for his prodigious output, especially since he's a non-native English speaker who only learned to speak the language fluently when he was in his 20s and even then, reportedly with a strong Polish accent.
But with perhaps the exception of The Secret Ag I've tried. But with perhaps the exception of The Secret Agent, I find most of his novels tedious with long meandering passages and a profusion of detail that make me wonder - where's he going with this?
In the case of Nostromo, we meet Charles Gould who is the heir of the Sao Tome silver mine in Sulaco.
After his father dies a broken man, Gould moves to Sulaco with his wife Emilia, determined to make a success of the Gould Concession.
The novel putters along for some pages, sketching out the various characters that populate the novel - the Goulds, the crippled Dr Monygham, Giorgio Viola, his wife Teresa and their daughters Linda and Giselle, Don Jose Avellano, his daughter Antonia, her suitor Martin Decoud and of course Nostromo, the indefatigable and indomitable Capataz de Cagadores that all and sundry look to to save the day.
Apart from this diverse cast of characters, we also learn about the origins of the Gould Concession, political developments in Costaguana that threaten Sulaco's peaceful prosperity.
And then in the last 50 pages of the book, it all comes to a head, twists aplenty, with Nostromo at the centre of it all.
Honestly, the plot developments in the last 50 pages made me question whether the preceding pages or at least 70 percent of them were even necessary.
Probably one and a half stars for this book, which I think would have fared much better as a tightly written short story.
Feb 13, Matt rated it it was amazing Shelves: classic-literature , best-of-the-best. Conrad is cynical, in the best sense of that word.
Lord Jim was one of my favorite books, and Nostromo is probably even better. Although it is difficult to become acquainted with the characters at first, the reader cannot help but understand them in a profound way by the end.
Conrad's worldview is disturbing but also compelling, as he uses character, symbolism, and allegory to tell a realistic story with an abundance of lessons.
