Show Summary Details


This last chapter brings forth and draws conclusions concerning the different aspects of Joseph Conrad's and James Joyce's texts. Both the writers mostly expressed critical as well as accusatory remarks against their respective nations in order to justify their immigration. Through their writings both writers exposed the hypocrisy of the imperial nations’ strategies adopted for maintaining power. Conrad and Joyce both warn us about disordering foundational narratives and dissolving established norms into chaos.
