Personal profile

My research focus is on the author Joseph Conrad, in the field of English Literature. Primarily I am researching his novels and short stories, with research into his biography supporting this focus. More specifically I am investigating character psychology and representative analogies of it which occur within the texts (in-text analogies i.e. a text may have a self-reflexive analogy; one part analogously referencing another part, whilst retaining its standard function as part of the primary, non-analogous, narrative. Therefore forming a dual narrative (primary and analogous) within the same text.). This investigation also involves the analysis of different modes of narrative progression and environmental contexts.


In the future, this research may be expanded on to investigate texts from other authors, and, more generally, analyse how literal and figurative interpretations are made and how they interact with eachother.
