Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë( Book )

78 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wuthering Heights is one of the most famous love stories in the English language. It is also, as the Introduction to this edition reveals, one of the most potent revenge narratives. Its ingenious narrative structure, vivid evocation of landscape, and the extraordinary power of its depiction of love and hatred have given it a unique place in English literature. The passionate tale of Catherine and Heathcliff is here presented in a new edition that examines the qualities that make it such a powerful and compelling novel. The Introduction by Helen Small sheds light on the novel's oddness and power, its amorality and Romantic influences, its structure and narration, and the sadistic violence embodied in the character of Heathcliff. The volume retains the authoritative Clarendon text and notes, with new notes that identify literary allusions hitherto unnoticed. In addition, the edition boasts two appendices, one of which contains poems by Emily Brontë selected for their relevance to the novel, and a second which contains Charlotte Brontë's "Biographical Notice of Ellis & Acton Bell" and "Preface to the New Edition."--Publisher website

65 editions published between 1954 and 1971 in 3 languages and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays represents some of the best critical thinking on Pope in recent years. Professor Hammond examines the main issues in the debate, in particular why Pope''s writing has been so resistant to modern methodologies, such as deconstruction. The essays focus on particular poems or themes and exemplify different theoretical perspectives, both traditional and modern. The editor''s notes clarify the differences that exist, and what those differences can teach the student about theory in practice

Presenting poetry : composition, publication, reception : essays in honour of Ian Jack by Howard Erskine-Hill( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The presentation of poetry to auditor and reader involves a complex interaction of rhetorical, orthographical and visual mediating skills. At issue are the nature of 'authority', the creation of a readership attuned to the writer's poetic resonances, and a delicate negotiation between literary tradition and individual talent. In a series of detailed readings leading scholars focus on the presentation of work by Spenser, Herbert, Milton, Dryden, Pope, Smart, Blake, Wordsworth, Browning, Newman, Yeats, Lawrence and David Jones. The wide chronological range enables unusually extensive comparison across the boundaries of generic form, and between the varying emotional, aesthetic and rhetorical emphases of specific periods: from the creation of fictitious personae to the construction of autobiographical 'self', from the interaction of printed word and visual image to the arrangements and rearrangements of structure and sequence
A sentimental journey and other writings by Laurence Sterne( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Celebrated in its own day as the progenitor of 'a school of sentimental writers', A Sentimental Journey (1768) has outlasted its many imitators because of the humour and mischievous eroticism that inform Mr. Yorick's travels. Setting out to journey to France and Italy he gets little further than Lyons but finds much to appreciate. A master of ambiguity and double entendre, Sterne is nevertheless concerned to explore the nature of virtue; unlike other writers of sentimental fiction, Sterne insists on the inseparability of desire and feeling." "This new edition includes a selection from The Sermons of Mr. Yorick, which sheds light on the concerns of the Journey, The Journal to Eliza, which records Sterne's feelings as he languishes for the company of Eliza Draper, and A Political Romance, the satire on a local ecclesiastical squabble that was the catalyst for Sterne's literary career."--Jacket
