Title: The Naked Man from the Sea: Identity and Separation in "The Secret Sharer"
Authors: Vanon Alliata, Michela
Keywords: Conrad, Joseph. The Secret Sharer
Issue Date: 2005
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: "The Secret Sharer", Conrad's greatest contribution to the literature of the double, defines a whole series of concerns and conflicts central to both his life and fiction. While producing a dynamic narrative structure, the motif of the divided self becomes a device to overcome the boundaries of adventure in favour of a psychological realism of striking profundity, the drama of a divided subjectivity. Here the double, a fascinating and mysterious murderer, is both the projection of the protagonist's dark side and an empathetic other instrumental in the individuation process and emergence of the sense of self.
