The works by Joseph Conrad analyzed in this volume comprise Almayer's Folly, "Heart of Darkness", "Amy Foster", Under Western Eyes, "Prince Roman", Conrad's non-fictional writings and his entire literary output. The variety of studies in reception of Conrad's works comprise a comprehensive factual survey of reception in one country and various types of creative reception: literary, translatory, artistic inspiration and influence, filmic. The reception sub-cluster shows various types of works of art in which Conradian patterns have been received: mostly literary prose, but also drama and theatricality, non-fictional prose, film.The volume presents not only various kinds of literary studies in the strict sense of the word but also those of the disciplines of humanities bordering on them, such as biography, studies in politics, history, axiology, filmic studies, translation studies and even remote ones (navigation studies). The great variety of issues of biography, politics, literature and reception considered here - as related to Conrad and to various Polish and East-Central European matters and contexts - hopefully comprises innovatory considerations by either taking up new issues or significantly reinterpreting old ones.
