NostromoScritto da: Joseph Conrad E-book
Giovanni Battista Fidanza, also known as Nostromo, is a revered seaman who is asked to smuggle a shipment of silver out of a war-torn country. Despite his stellar reputation, Nostromo encounters an unexpected challenge that will test his skills and ethics.
Costaguana is a fictional South American country that’s embroiled in chaos due to war-lords eager to overthrow the government. In an effort to protect his assets, Charles Gould, who owns a silver mine, plans to ship his precious metals out of the country. He hires Nostromo, an Italian sailor, to secretly export the cargo before the rebellion takes hold. In the same trip, Nostromo agrees to help transport a journalist looking to escape persecution. The men face a series of obstacles, setting them on a dark path of corruption.
Many critics consider Nostromo a literary masterpiece. It paints an honest and unforgiving picture of the human condition. Through different characters, the story tracks the pervasive nature of greed and how it destroys those with the noblest intentions.
With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Nostromo is both modern and readable.
