Though Harold Bloom wished to distance himself from culture war polemics, he has unapologetically practiced what Allan Bloom preached, teaching the Canonical "great books" of literature and religion and opposing all manner of critics on the left, whom he lumps together in the phrase the School of Resentment.

The most interesting aspect of Bloom's judgment of Conrad is that he includes LORD JIM among the great novels and excludes CHANCE, whereas F.R. Leavis does the exact reverse.

I've always though Leavis was a better critic than Bloom, though at this level of achievement comparison are truly odious. However, I think Leavis nods here. CHANCE was Conrad's first commercial success and one wonders why because the story was probably a bit hard going for the reader of "best sellers" then and now. I think of it as much ado about nothing, even though the inclusion of Marlow and the prose are both interesting, but LORD JIM is a masterpiece.

Leavis, playing on a remark by Conrad that the novel began as a short story and expanded into a "wandering tale", says that it's not a good story or a good novel, finding the "second half", Jim's redemption, inferior to the first part. But this is hypercriticism with a vengeance. The quality of the prose and the moral insight is strong from start to finish in LORD JIM. (Leavis also had bad words for HEART OF DARKNESS, claiming that foggy language about "unspeakable horrors" spoils the novella, which to my mind is like saying that Hardy's occasionally deficient prose disqualifies a powerful novel like TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES from classical status.)

Otherwise, Leavis and Bloom agree that NOSTROMO, UNDER WESTERN EYES, and THE SECRET AGENT are Conrad's major achievements and with that I agree completely!

The introduction calls attention to disillusioned weariness competes with a disenchanted vanity on the same page in quoted sentences which are only a paragraph apart to describe Don Martin Decoud and Capataz de Cargadores as companions in the most desperate affair of his life. The Introduction by Harold Bloom is short, but he attempts to show how critics don't like how quickly a writer can switch points of view. Instead of just telling a story, Conrad can have it filtered through four ways of thinking to involve the author, a narrator, people interacting with each other, and an environment that has more sky and water than most readers ever cross. One selection is called The Limits of Irony.

Schools teach students point of view like a political situation in which a speaker faces an audience that wants to be united by comment exaltation of a fate they have been hoping for. Writing for a random universe that can switch off the topic of the title before people know what they are listening for gets sidetracked by Lord Jim's expectation that "he will be thought a cur." (p. 183).
