La linea d’ombra di Joseph Conrad tra mood e Stimmung

Giampiero Moretti


In the Author’s note, written in 1920 in regard to his important novel The shadow line: a confession, Joseph Conrad makes some significant remarks on the relation between nature, senses and emotions. The article aims to identify the emotional space, between Mood and Stimmung, that Conrad finds in the human soul. This space, although “literary”, is not fictional, but assumes the aspect of a genuine sentimental truth that places humanity in his proper world.
