The reception of H.G. Wells in Europe by Patrick Parrinder( )

Learning from other worlds : estrangement, cognition, and the politics of science fiction and utopia by Patrick Parrinder( )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and Polish and held by 1,196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides both a portrait of the development of science fiction criticism as an intellectual field and a definitive look at the state of science fiction studies today. Its title refers to the essence of "cognitive estrangement" in relation to science fiction and utopian fiction-the assertion that by imagining strange worlds we learn to see our own world in a new perspective. Acknowledging an indebtedness to the groundbreaking work of Darko Suvin and his belief that the double movement of estrangement and cognition reflects deep structures of human storytelling, the contributors assert that learning-from-otherness is as natural and inevitable a process as the instinct for imitation and representation that Aristotle described in his Poetics. In exploring the relationship between imaginative invention and that of allegory or fable, the essays comment on the field's most abiding concerns and employ a variety of critical approaches-from intellectual history and genre studies to biographical criticism, feminist cultural studies, and political textual analysis. Among the topics discussed are the works of John Wyndham, Kim Stanley Robinson, Stanislau Lem, H.G. Wells, and Ursula Le Guin, as well as the media's reactions to the 1997 cloning of Dolly the Sheep
James Joyce by Patrick Parrinder( Book )

28 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This critical compendium surveys the whole of Joyce's work, from his early writings as a student in Dublin to the labyrinths of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. It shows how Joyce grew beyond his early artistic revolt against middle-class Ireland to become a great comic writer, who even at his most experimental never ceased to draw his inspiration from the common life of ordinary men and women.--Adapted from publisher description

Authors and authority : English and American criticism, 1750-1990 by Patrick Parrinder( Book )

25 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Authors and Authority" is a one-volume history of Anglo-American literary criticism from the neoclassical period up until recent trends in modern literary theory, feminist criticism and cultural history. Focussing on the work of major critics such as Johnson, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Arnold, Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Leavis, Frye and Lionel Trilling, Parrinder traces the connections between authorship and critical authority, and between literary debate and the changing forms of culture and society. Surveying the development that leads from the creative manifestos of the Romantic poets to the current interpretative theories of stucturalism, deconstruction and new historicism, the author asks whether there is a future for a distinctively literary criticism, and whether the gulf between creator and critic can be healed. -- Back cover

The whirlpool by George Gissing( Book )

25 editions published between 1897 and 2016 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Marriage rarely means happiness, either for man or woman; if it be not too grievous to be borne, one must thank the fates and take courage'. The greatest of English realist novelists, famous for New Grub Street, George Gissing creates in The Whirlpool an astonish picture of characters caught in the vortex of London, struggling to understand how they can make sense of their lives in a society of remorseless faithlessness and social snobbery. A whole era is magnificently brought to life in all its glamour and squalor - and at the book's heart lies one of the most remarkable figures in English literature: Alma Rolfe, torn between an idyll of rural domesticity and her career in London as a musician

A troubled insomniac in 1890s England falls suddenly into a sleep-like trance, from which he does not awake for over two hundred years. During his centuries of slumber, however, investments are made that make him the richest and most powerful man on Earth. But when he comes out of his trance he is horrified to discover that the money accumulated in his name is being used to maintain a hierarchal society in which most are poor, and more than a third of all people are enslaved. Oppressed and uneducated, the masses cling desperately to one dream that the sleeper will awake, and lead them all to freedom
