I've just written 500 words of Chance in a couple of hours. It's about time. , p. 136). After concluding Chance in March I I)I2, he ceased writing for several weeks. His criticism of Dostoevsky may relate more to his own state of mind as he awaited the publication of Chance than to his reading ofDostoevsky: 'I don't know that he is too Russian for me. , p. 140). Since Chance is a unique effort to combine the novel of manners (the striking examples of which for Conrad were the novels of Henry James) with the adventure tale, it is not surprising that at this time he should have judged Dostoevsky's passionate energy severely.

Edward W. : Havard University Press, 1966), p. 162. 3 Conrad's later novels In recent years, Conrad's later novels-Chance (I 9 I 2), Victory (I 9 I 5), The Shadow-Line (I9I6), The Arrow of Gold (I9I9), The Rescue (1919) and The Rover (1923)-have been discussed as symbolic tales and allegories, as if they belonged to a different genre from his previous work. Thematically, they have been seen as symptoms of Conrad's inability to deal with love and sexuality on a mature level. While not ignoring differences between these novels and his prior work, I shall stress the biographical, thematic and formal continuities with Conrad's previous work.
