“Government in general, any government anywhere, is a thing of exquisite comicality to a discerning mind.”― Joseph Conrad, NostromoNostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard (1904) by Joseph Conrad recounts the story of an Italian dock-worker named Nostromo, who is assigned the task to safeguard a silver mine, owned by an Englishman named Charles Gould, from the rebels led by Montero. But when Nostromo does not obtain the profits that were promised to him by the owner, he gets infuriated and keeps the silver for himself. Set in the fictitious South American republic of Costaguana, this novel offers an enchanting tale of a foreign-dominated economic and political system that is opposed by the natives of the land.
