Rather than imitate reality, either by reference to 'truth of fact and to the actual past' or by reference to 'truth of sensation and environment, depending on observation of the present', the world of romance is 'the ideal world in which poetic justice prevails and all the arts and adornments oflanguage are used to embellish the narrative'. 1 Romance often combines with the other kind of 'fictional' narrative, the 'fable, a form which is ruled by an intellectual and moral impulse as romance is ruled by an esthetic one'.

Partly because his own intellectual growth was reaching full fruition, and partly because the philosophic threats to his moral optimism demanded a strong analytic counterbalance, Conrad at times adopts a tone of cold intellectual conviction which tends to freeze the stream of ideas ....

The pleasure of reading a novel like Victory derives less from the recognition of acute psychological or social observation than from the recognition of subtleties in the dramatization of a set of ideas, and to insist on the first at the expense of the second would be to resist the creation of allegory at all.
