"Growing Wings to Overcome Gravity, inspired by a passage from Plato's Phaedrus, serves as a coda to my critical trilogy, published over a span of nearly twenty years: The Reverent Discipline (1974), The courage of Judgement (1982), and The Critic as Conservator (1992). My title here provides the encompassing poetic image-and the inspiration behind my critical intent- of ultimately overcoming the crises of modernism in which we agonize, and of attaining the promise of spiritual and moral order.

This book seeks to renew interest in Joseph Conrad's moral imagination. In illuminating interpretations the author focuses on the consequences of moral darkness and moral warfare as he proceeds to uncover Conrad's basic ideas and meaning. The book shows that morality in Conrad's work is not reducible to an absolute category but must be apprehended in the forms of both moral crises and the possibility of moral recovery enacted in their complexity and tensions
