Nostromo is an adventure novel written by Joseph Conrad and originally published in 1904.

This gripping tale, set in the port of Sulaco, located in the fictional country of Costaguana in Latin America, is loaded with political reflections and social criticism.

The main economic engine of the area is the mining of the silver that is extracted from its mountains and shipped from the port to other countries such as the United States.

However, this valuable and profitable silver mine causes many interests in its control, both internally in the country and by interference from external countries. Revolutions, coups d'état or corrupt political parties will be present in Costaguana. The book masterfully reflects the post-colonial situation of Latin America where chaos and corruption were very common.

Nostromo, who gives the novel its title, is the trusted man of the European workers in the mine.

"In the time of Spanish rule, and for many years afterwards, the town of Sulaco—the luxuriant beauty of the orange gardens bears witness to its antiquity—had never been commercially anything more important than a coasting port with a fairly large local trade in ox- hides and indigo."
