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.

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.
