DUBLINERS has been called a landmark in modern literature. In its remarkable portrait of a city and its people, it dramatises ordinary life in the modern world.

The crafty reader by Robert Scholes( )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 2,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This latest book from the literary critic Robert Scholes presents his exploration of the craft of reading. He deals with reading not as an art or performance given by a virtuoso reader, but as a craft that can be studied, taught, and learned. Those who master the craft of reading, Scholes contends, will justifiably take responsibility for the readings they produce and the texts they choose to read."--Jacket
Paradoxy of modernism by Robert Scholes( )

16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this lively, personal book, Robert Scholes intervenes in ongoing discussions about modernism in the arts during the crucial half-century from 1895 to 1945. While critics of and apologists for modernism have defined modern art and literature in terms of binary oppositions{u2014}high/low, old/new, hard/soft, poetry/rhetoric{u2014}Scholes contends that these distinctions are in fact confused and misleading. Such oppositions are instances of ?paradoxy????????an apparent clarity that covers real confusion. Closely examining specific literary texts, drawings, critical writings, and memoirs, Scholes seeks to complicate the neat polar oppositions attributed to modernism. He argues for the rehabilitation of works in the middle ground that have been trivialized in previous evaluations, and he fights orthodoxy with such paradoxes as ?durable fluff,? ?formulaic creativity,? and ?iridescent mediocrity.? The book reconsiders major figures like James Joyce while underscoring the value of minor figures and addressing new attention to others rarely studied. It includes illustrations of the artworks discussed. Filled with the observations of a personable and witty guide, this is a book that opens up for a reader{u2019}s delight the rich cultural terrain of modernism

Semiotics and interpretation by Robert Scholes( Book )

24 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as a companion piece to my earlier study, Structuralism in Literature, but differs from its predecessor in a number of respects. The study of structuralism was primarily theoretical, and its individual chapters were mainly devoted to discussions of the contributions certain Continental writers had made to the development of structuralism as an intellectual position. -- Description of the original version
Science fiction : history, science, vision by Robert Scholes( Book )

24 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past century and a half, writers of what we have learned to call "science fiction" have been trying to create a modern conscience for the human race. In the same period many writers in the field have produced trivial, ephemeral works of "popular" fiction. The premise upon which this book is based is that a sufficient number of works of genuine merit have been produced in this field to justify its study as an aspect of modern literature, as well as an important feature of contemporary culture.--From foreword
Hemingway's genders : rereading the Hemingway text by Nancy R Comley( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernest Hemingway has long been regarded as a fiercely heterosexual writer who advocated and embodied an exaggerated masculinity. This witty and intelligent book, the first to focus exclusively on gender in Hemingway's writing, presents a new view of the author, demonstrating that issues of gender and sexuality are more complex and subtle in his work than has ever been imagined

The nature of narrative by Robert Scholes( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the past forty years The Nature of Narrative has been an essential work for students of literature, teachers, writers, and scholars. Countering the tendency to view the novel as the paradigm case of literary narrative, Robert Scholes and Robert Kellogg offered a compelling history of narrative from antiquity to the twentieth century. Their main goal was to describe and analyze the nature of narrative's key elements: meaning, character, plot, and point of view." "The Fortieth Anniversary Edition of this groundbreaking work has been revised and expanded to include a new preface and a lengthy chapter by James Phelan on developments in narrative theory since 1966. This new material describes the principles and practices of structuralist, cognitive, feminist, and rhetorical approaches to narrative, paying special attention to their work on character, plot, and narrative discourse. A continued leader in the field of narrative studies, The Nature of Narrative offers unique and invaluable histories of both narrative and narrative theory. Book jacket."--Jacket

The Little Review "Ulysses" by James Joyce( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Joyce's Ulysses first appeared in print in the pages of an American avant-garde magazine, The Little Review, between 1918 and 1920. The novel many consider to be the most important literary work of the twentieth century was, at the time, deemed obscene and scandalous, resulting in the eventual seizure of The Little Review and the placing of a legal ban on Joyce's masterwork that would not be lifted in the United States until 1933. For the first time, The Little Review "Ulysses" brings together the serial installments of Ulysses to create a new edition of the novel, enabling teachers, students, scholars, and general readers to see how one of the previous century's most daring and influential prose narratives evolved, and how it was initially introduced to an audience who recognized its radical potential to transform Western literature. This unique and essential publication also includes essays and illustrations designed to help readers understand the rich contexts in which Ulysses first appeared and to trace the complex changes Joyce introduced after it was banned"--
