Available evidence and reasonable conjecture suggest Joseph Conrad named Chateau Borel of Under Western Eyes after the French republican and romanticist Petrus Borel (Pierre Joseph Borel d'Hauterive, 1809-59). The choice of this name indicates the extent of Conrad's literary quarrel with romanticism and his own unabashed use of its conventions. (DLH)
