The Secret Agent · Joseph Conrad (Penguin English Library)

10,00 €

Madness and despair! Give me that for a lever, and I'll move the world'

In the only novel Conrad set in London, The Secret Agent communicates a profoundly ironic view of human affairs. The story is woven around an attack on the Greenwich Observatory in 1894 masterminded by Verloc, a Russian spy working for the police, and ostensibly a member of an anarchist group in Soho. His masters instruct him to discredit the anarchists in a humiliating fashion, and when his evil plan goes horribly awry, Verlac must deal with the repercussions of his actions.

This book is part of the Penguin English Library, a collection of 100 of the best classics of English Literature, all with elegant, eye-catching cover art.

These are books to collect, share and admire, books which celebrate the pleasure of reading.
