Sheridan by Oliphant( Book )

90 editions published between 1878 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Scots novelist Margaret Oliphant (1828-97) published this biography of the playwright and poet Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1816) in the first 'English Men of Letters' series in 1883. Sheridan is best known for his plays The Rivals, A Trip to Scarborough, and The School for Scandal, which was his most popular work among his contemporaries. Sheridan was also at one point the owner of the famous Theatre Royal on Drury Lane, which he purchased with his father-in-law in 1776. He led a radical political career, becoming a Whig MP in 1780 and quickly developing a reputation as a brilliant orator. He defended the French Revolution and supported American colonists against British colonial policy. Oliphant's biography covers Sheridan's youth, dramatic writing, political career and middle age; her vivid and sympathetic portrayal provides a valuable insight into his remarkable life
The makers of Venice : doges, conquerors, painters, and men of letters by Oliphant( Book )

100 editions published between 1884 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An influential and prolific Victorian author, Margaret Oliphant (1828-97) is best remembered for her Chronicles of Carlingford - novels which sketch the religious and domestic politics of a provincial community - particularly the most popular in the cycle, Miss Marjoribanks (1866), and for her many book reviews, essays and serialised fiction for Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine. Her output included ninety-eight novels, some fifty short stories, works of biography and non-fiction, and a series of cultural histories of European cities, of which this is the second. Originally published in 1887, the book paints a compelling picture of the cultural development of the great city of Venice during the middle ages and the Renaissance through biographical sketches of its key figures. They include the doge Enrico Dandolo, the explorer Marco Polo, and the artists Titian and Tintoretto. The volumes on Florence (1876) and Rome (1895) are also reissued in this series

Miss Marjoribanks by Oliphant( Book )

58 editions published between 1865 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucilla Marjoribanks is determined to look after her widowed father and become 'the sunshine of his life' whether he likes it or not. Once installed back at home and presiding over her father's drawing room, she launches herself into Carlingford society, aiming to raise the tone with her select evening parties. Lucilla is optimistic, resourceful, and completely without self-doubt, but will her indomitable nature diminish her marriage prospects? Will she marry the wrong man to save herself from eternal spinsterhood? With its superbly flawed heroine, Miss Marjoribanks (1866) is a wonderfully comic depiction of the conventions and proprieties that rule a vacuous society."--Back cover

Hester by Oliphant( Book )

66 editions published between 1883 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aging Catherine Vernon, jilted in her youth, has risen to power in a man's world as head of the family bank. She thinks she sees through everyone and rules over a family of dependants with knowing cynicism. But there are two people in Redborough who resist her. One is Hester, a young relation with a personality as strong as Catherine's, and as determined to find a role for herself. The other is Edward, Catherine's favourite, whom she treats like a son. Conflict between young and old is inevitable, and in its depiction of the complex relationships that develop between the three principal characters, Hester is a masterpiece of psychological realism. In exploring the difficulty of understanding human nature, it is also a compulsive story of financial and sexual risk-taking that mounts towards a searing climax."--Back cover

Phoebe, junior by Oliphant( Book )

50 editions published between 1876 and 2015 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Margaret Oliphant was one of the most prolific and popular writers of her day. Her domestic novels are steeped in the broad social, political, and religious worlds of the Victorian era, and her Chronicles of Carlingford series stands as an insightful portrait of English life. Phoebe Junior, the last of this series, examines Victorian class dynamics by following the social mobility of one family and the effects of this mobility on the daughter, Phoebe." "Based on the earliest edition, this Broadview Literary Text also includes a variety of contextualizing primary sources. Among these are excerpts from Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management, illustrations from Punch, and materials on the "Woman Question" and on Etiquette and Dress."--Jacket
