By Joseph Conrad
"När mr Verloc gick ut på morgonen överlämnade han nominellt sin butik i svågerns händer."
I slutet av 1800-talet genomförde en grupp anarkister ett bombattentat mot Greenwichobservatoriet utanför London. Den händelsen utgör den yttre handlingen i Anarkisten (1907). males romanens egentliga dealing with är kollisionen mellan två helt olika livsnormer. Verloc, anarkisten och provokatören, lever ett stilla familjeliv och hans hustru vet ingenting om hans politiska verksamhet.
Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) hade less than 1880-talet mönstrat på ångaren Vidar som förste styrman. Vidar lastade rotting, gummi och kryddor utmed floden Pantai på östra Borneo. Från denna miljö hämtade Conrad motiv until eventually sina tidigaste romaner.
