All does not run smoothly however and leads to Mr Verloc’s wife, Winnie, demonstrating how quickly rational equilibrium can change to frenzied destruction.
Setting his story in a subterranean grimy London peopled by deceptive, dishonourable characters, Conrad not only reminds us of the futility of mindless aggression but also of how near it is to the surface of human behaviour.
The free books are in the universal PDF format and are offered for free by publishers or writers or they are in the public domain. In the only vel Conrad set in London, The Secret Agent communicates a profoundly ironic view of human affairs.

He is to instigate an act ‘of destructive ferocity so absurd as to be incomprehensible, inexplicable, almost unthinkable; in fact, mad’.

The story is woven around an attack on the Greenwich Observatory in 1894 masterminded by Verloc, a Russian spy working for the police, and ostensibly a member of an anarchist group in Soho. The Secret Agent is also notable as it is one of Conrad’s later political novels, which move away from his typical tales of seafaring.
His masters instruct him to discredit the anarchists in a humiliating fashion, and when his evil plan goes horribly awry, Verloc must deal with the repercussions of his actions.


While rooted in the Edwardian period, Conrad's tale remains strikingly contemporary, with its depiction of Londoners gripped by fear of the terrorists living in their midst. It portrays anarchist or revolutionary groups before many of the social uprisings of the twentieth century.
This edition of The Secret Agent contains a chrology, further reading, tes and maps of London and Greenwich.
However, it also deals with exploitation, particularly with regard to Verloc’s relationship with his brother-in-law Stevie. In his introduction, Michael Newton discusses London's real-life world of political anarchy, and Conrad's portrayal of the Verlocs' marriage. In 1874 Conrad travelled to Marseilles, where he served in French merchant vessels before joining a British ship in 1878 as an apprentice. Eight years later he left the sea to devote himself to writing, publishing his first novel, Almayer's Folly, in 1895.
The following year he settled in Kent, where he produced within fifteen years such modern classics as Youth, Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent and Under Western Eyes.
Stape is the author of The Several Lives of Joseph Conrad (1996) and Conrad's Notes on Life and Letters (2004).
