This chapter discusses the relevance of a negotiation to long-standing critical debates about Conrad's relationship to European imperialism. Conrad's work tends to focus on isolated male characters. Since men and women of other nations and races function solely to facilitate narrative investigations into characters such as Lord Jim and Marlow, it seems clear that the universalizing tendency of his works is to represent Mankind in terms of men who count and simultaneously disguise that fact.

Keywords: negotiation; Conrad; European imperialism; Lord Jim; Marlow; Mankind
