(p.221) Conclusion
Conrad and Women

Susan Jones

Oxford University Press

This closing chapter demonstrates the importance of women's writing, women readers, female portraiture, and the relationship of text and illustration in the serialized novels in shaping Conrad's later fiction. It draws attention to the re-emergence of Marguerite Poradowska's influence, and how, in the late work in particular, Conrad exploited the techniques of traditional forms in order to question the structures of romance which continued to confine and classify women.

Keywords:   women, writing, women readers, female portraiture, text, illustration, Marguerite Poradowska, romance
