The Brontë sisters : selected poems of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë by Stevie Davies( Book )

20 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the Brontës have long fascinated readers of fiction and biography, their poetry was all too little known until this pioneering selection by Stevie Davies, the novelist and critic. Charlotte (1816-1855) is certainly a competent poet, and Anne (1820-1849) developed a distinctive voice, while Emily (1818-1848) is one of the great women poets in English. Read together with their novels, the poems movingly elucidate the ideas around which the narratives revolve. And they surprise us out of our conventional notions of the sisters' personalities: Emily's rebelliousness, for example, is counterbalanced here by great tenderness. This selection of over seventy poems gives an idea of the variety of thought and feeling within each author's work, and of the way in which the poems of these three remarkable writers parallel and reflect each other
Kith & kin by Stevie Davies( Book )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mara and Frankie are cousins and best friends, growing up in the stifling atmosphere of Swansea in the Fifties, within the tight knot of an extended family that thrives on gossip, petty feuds and innuendo." "Mara is a difficult but loved child whilst Frankie is rebellious, fired by an intense and demanding emotional hunger. The two develop a strange mutual dependence in which love, jealousy, hate and rivalry intermingle. They come of age in the heady atmosphere of the Sixties - a decade in which notions of family and kinship are being overturned in favour of 'free love', sexual experimentation and social revolution. But that dream turns sour and a bitter battle of wills results." "Years later, Mara sees a nostalgic film clip of Frankie in her youth and this serves as a springboard to her past, forcing her to confront unanswered questions about Frankie's life and death."--BOOK JACKET

Seeking roots but reveling in her new found freedom, she finds that life at The Eyrie offers surprising new opportunities, and an unlikely co-conspirator."--Jacket

Set in the postwar period when Britain, the bankrupt victor of the Second World War, attempted to assert itself as an Imperial power in a world wholly altered. Joe's tragedy is that of an ordinary working man of his generation: he's a lovely, humorous, emotional man in whom the common ration of racism and misogyny becomes a painful sickness. Ailsa, intelligent, curious and craving to explore the realities of the Egypt she enters, meets on the voyage out Mona, a Palestinian woman who excites in her yearning for a world beyond her horizons. When Joe's closest friend is murdered by Egyptian terrorists, their relationship spirals towards tragedy. Through it all, love remains.
