She's swindled out of part of her inheritance and her relations battle for the rest. With no prior marriage prospects, she's suddenly courted by three men.

For as I look deeper into the mirror, I find myself a more curious person than I had thought.'John Ruskin (1819-1900) was a towering figure of the nineteenth century: an art critic who spoke up for J.M.W. Turner and for the art of the Italian Middle Ages; a social critic whose aspiration for, and disappointment in, the future of Great Britain was expressed in some of the most vibrant prose in the language. Ruskin's incomplete autobiography was written between periods of serious mental illness at the end of his career, and is an eloquent analysis of the guiding powers of his life, both public

Imagination of Charles Dickens (RLE Dickens) : Routledge Library Editions: Charles Dickens Volume 3 by A. O. J Cockshut( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes Charles Dickens as an ordinary man who by being perfectly tuned to the public taste developed into a master of his art. The clue to this paradox lies, in the author's opinion, in Dickens' obsession with such topics as money, crowds and prisons which touch the life of everyone. From the deep fears of his childhood they became the main food for his imagination. As his creative mind worried over them, so his art developed. This process provided the driving force behind his work, and is at the root of his greatness as an artist
