Irish Folk-History Plays. WITH: Our Irish Theatre. New York and London: G.P. Putnam’s Sons (Knickerbocker Press), Three volumes. Joseph Conrad was born in Berdichev, in the Ukraine, in a region that had once been a part of Poland, but was then under Russian rule. His father Apollo Korzeniowski was an aristocrat without lands, a poet and translator of Shakespeare and Dickens and French literature.

      The Several Lives of Joseph Conrad is the first new biography in more than a decade of one of modern literature’s most important writers--whose work remains widely read and acutely relevant eighty years after his death. In this authoritative, insightful book, we see Joseph Conrad as a man who consistently reinvented himself. Branden W. Joseph's new book Beyond the Dream Syndicate: Tony Conrad and the Arts After Cage is a necessary and timely one. In sum, Joseph has succeeded in substantially altering our notion of the so-called expanded field of art and film.
