Book Description

This is an electronic edition of the complete book complemented by author biography.
************
The Secret Agent: A Simple Tale is a novel by Joseph Conrad published in 1907. The story is set in London in 1886 and deals largely with the life of Mr. Verloc and his job as a spy. The Secret Agent is also notable as it is one of Conrad''s later political novels, which move away from his typical tales of seafaring. The novel deals broadly with the notions of anarchism, espionage, and terrorism. It portrays anarchist or revolutionary groups before many of the social uprisings of the twentieth century. However, it also deals with exploitation, particularly with regards to Mr Verloc''s relationship with his brother-in-law Stevie. Due to its terrorist theme, The Secret Agent has been noted as "one of the three works of literature most cited in the American media" post September 11, 2001.
