It focuses on Conrad's negotiation of precision and clarity - and the kind of contract he establishes with the reader. It then considers the problem of representing another kind of nautical language - the swearing of ships' crews - and how Conrad negotiated the problem of authenticity and contemporary ideas of decency. The essay considers also how contemporary reviewers responded to these aspects of his fiction",
