Penguin English Library 130x200 528 страниц. 2013 год. Penguin Books Ltd. This is the "Penguin English Library Edition" of "Nostromo" by Joseph Conrad. In the exotic South American republic of Costaguana, the San Tome silver mine provides opportunities for untold wealth and power. Yet amid the turbulence and brutality of Latin American politics, everyone associated with it - from the compromised English mine-owner Gould to the grasping businessman Holroyd, from the revolutionary Montero to the loyal and seemingly incorruptible worker Nostromo - becomes somehow irrevocably tainted. "Nostromo" is a grandiose epic, startlingly modern in its technique and political sophistication - and a masterpiece of tension, adventure and mystery. "The Penguin English Library" - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
