This monograph groups studies that deal with intertextual aspects of Joseph Conrad's literary art. Intertextual relationships are seen in terms of either affinities/points of contact and the influence of earlier literary works upon his oeuvre, or the influence of Conrad's texts upon literary works by authors following him.
