Abstract

A comparison of two books by the same author, with somewhat similar themes and narrative formats, provides an opportunity to examine the relation of the form of a novel to its content. In altering his treatment of the subject of guilt and expiation in order to shift his emphasis from questions of absolute guilt and redemption to psychological revelation, Conrad gives a different tone to Under Western Eyes than to Lord Jim.
