The Language of Time in The Secret Agent
http://www.thepequod.org.uk/essays/litcrit/agent.htm
"In The Secret Agent, Conrad shows how language has a necessary capacity to manipulate time as an empirical force, making the events of several months seem to take place in a few hours reading or performance time. Conrad combines this experience of the temporal performance of fiction with the events of 1884 and the Greenwich bomb plot of February 1894, showing that language is charged in connection with time as a conceptual entity, one which, as a concept rather than an empirical property, is subject to symbolic manipulation for political effect."
