Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Agent is a tale of anarchism, espionage, and terrorism. Our agent, a man named Mr. Verloc, minds his own business while he tends to his shop in London’s Soho district, alongside his wife, who attends to her aged mother and disabled brother. Their lives are turned upside down when Verloc is reluctantly employed to plant a bomb and destroy an observatory in London. What was once the perfect bomb plot inevitably turns awry and Verloc, his family, and his associates are forced to face the consequences. Conrad’s later political novel bears all the hallmarks of his captivating style. The Secret Agent brims with melodious and poetic language and crystal clear psychological insights that could only be the work of a uniquely gifted storyteller.
