False Gods of Imperialism in Conrad

(p.28) 2 False Gods of Imperialism in Conrad
Empire and Pilgrimage in Conrad and Joyce

Agata Szczeszak-Brewer

University Press of Florida

The chapter looks closely at Conrad's texts and tries to analyze the subject of presence of false gods of imperialism prevalent in the texts. Occurrence of false gods in Conrad's writings points toward his awareness about the colonizers proving to be their own enemies. Especially in the situations when cultural pride was fortified by “religious” certainty or by idolatrous attachment to one's own cosmogonic myth allowing disrespect for other cosmogonies.

Keywords:   Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, imperialism, false gods, cultural pride, cosmogonic myth, cosmogonies
