Wave

A short-term movement that goes against the general trend. For example, if the DJIA rallies on a given trading day but overall is in the midst of a prolonged bear market, the rally is called a wave against the bearish tide.

Beer reads wave theory as part of a broader cultural landscape and traces its influence on literary modernism; I see such an influence in Nostromo, but rather than reflecting wave theory alone, I would suggest that Conrad--like Woolf more than two decades later--is also responding to a very recent scientific notion that waves alone cannot account for all phenomena.
