The structural complexity of Lord Jim has received a wide array of critical attention. My research aims to address this issue, with special attention to how the changes in narrative reflect the larger political problem of locating authority that emerged at the turn of the century when the novel was published. I argue that by presenting multiple conflicting sources and narratives, Lord Jim actively involves readers in an illustration of this dilemma.
