When the young Miss Sydney falls under the sway of an older woman, Mrs. Kerr, a sapphic affair simmers right below the surface of Bowen's writing, creating a rich story that often relies as much on what is left unsaid as what is written on the page. Bowen depicts an intense interpersonal drama with wit and suspense, while playing with and pushing the English language to its boundaries+-+2758365965116479ocn000334708book19320.39Bowen, ElizabethTo the NorthFictionAn unlikely, but irresistible, love affair provides the framework for this absorbing novel of passion and solitude. Quiet, aloof and consciously solitary, Emmeline is unprepared for the violence of her attraction to Markie; but once she has succumbed to it, she far surpasses him in the depth and generosity of her surrender. The affairs of Cecilia, Emmeline's vivacious and gregarious sister-in-law, provide a sparkling counterpoint to Miss Bowen's main theme. There is also the girls' worrisome aunt, Lady Waters, a character Evelyn Waugh would be proud to claim, who "enlarged her own life into ripples of apprehension on everybody's behalf." Cool, clear, and wonderfully witty, To the North nonetheless combines passion and perception in the unique manner familiar to admirers of The Death of the Heart and The Heat of the Day+-+8001455596110712ocn320317267file20080.50Bowen, ElizabethPeople, places, things essaysHistoryFictionThroughout her career, Elizabeth Bowen, the Anglo-Irish novelist and short story writer, also wrote literary essays that display a shrewd, generous intelligence. Always sensitive to underlying tensions, she evokes the particular climate of countries and places in "Hungary," "Prague and the Crisis," and "Bowen's Court." In "Britain in Autumn," she records the strained atmosphere of the blitz as no other writer does.

Covering a range of situations - broken engagements, encounters with ghosts, brushes with crime - these stories demonstrate the virtuosity of technique that characterizes all of Bowen's writing.

From the 1940s to the 1960s, Elizabeth Bowen took an active role in spoken media and radio in particular by writing essays for broadcast, improvising interviews on the air and giving public lectures. During her lifetime, she published few of her broadcasts. Listening In brings together a substantial number of her ungathered and unknown works for the first time.

Characterized by their immediacy and what they suggest rather than state, the stories in Encounters and The Collected Stories, among others, reveal Bowen's lifelong attention to women's roles. Although closely related to the novels, the stories are distinct in their artistic achievement. In her discussions of such masterworks as "The Disinherited Summer Night" and "The Happy Autumn Fields," Lassner reveals that Bowen's most effective stories are those in which she has subtly inserted wry critiques of the role of traditional social codes in the formation of gender. This much-needed study of the short fiction includes excerpts from Bowen's own statements on writing as well as an excellent sampling of critical approaches to her work+-+23235743858577ocn000963063book19520.50Brooke, JocelynElizabeth BowenCriticism, interpretation, etc7763ocn000983973book19740.31Bowen, ElizabethPictures and conversationsBiographyDramaThis collection, which represents Elizabeth Bowen's last book, includes an unfinished autobiography, the beginnings of a novel, an essay, a nativity play, and 'Notes on writing a novel'7634ocn000984464book19740.53Kenney, Edwin JElizabeth BowenHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc7487ocn014818499book19860.30Bowen, ElizabethThe mulberry tree : writings of Elizabeth BowenBiography+-+49622744553246934ocn008133809book19810.50Lee, HermioneElizabeth Bowen, an estimationHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+10622744553246755ocn001379673book19610.53Heath, William WebsterElizabeth Bowen: an introd. to her novelsCriticism, interpretation, etc6356ocn810948631book20130.19Feigel, LaraThe love-charm of bombs : restless lives in the Second World WarBiographyAs poetic as it is enlightening this detailed biography of five literary figures is achingly beautiful in its depiction of the disturbing everyday realities of war5543ocn820123391file20120.47Darwood, NicolaA world of lost innocence the fiction of Elizabeth BowenCriticism, interpretation, etcElizabeth Bowen was a prolific writer; her publishing career spanned five decades and during this time she wrote ten novels, over one hundred short stories and countless reviews and journal articles.

"Elizabeth Bowen: The Enforced Return explores how she adapts Irish Protestant Gothic as a means of interpreting Irish experience during the Troubles of the 1920s and the Second World War, and also as a way of defining the defencelessness of those enduring the Blitz in wartime London. She employs versions of the Jamesian child as a way of offering a critique of the treatment of children in the European novel of adultery, and indeed, implicitly, of the Jamesian child itself. Corcoran relates the various kinds of return and reflex in her work - notably the presence of the supernatural, but also the sense of being haunted by reading - to both the Freudian concept of the 'return of the repressed' and T.S. Eliot's conception of the auditory imagination as a 'return to the origin'."--Jacket+-+35413634654656ocn032701164book19950.31Halperin, JohnEminent Georgians : the lives of King George V, Elizabeth Bowen, St. John Philby & Nancy AstorBiographyKing George V, a monarch often deemed stodgy and reactionary; Elizabeth Bowen, a brilliant Anglo-Irish writer, exposed as a World War II English spy monitoring her native Ireland; St. John Philby, father of the notorious spy Kim Philby; and Nancy Astor, an American divorcee who became the first female member of Parliament, make up the quartet of personalities through which John Halperin explores a world of intrigue existing just below the glittering surface of Britain in the 1920s and 1930s. Describing the age as simultaneously conventional and progressive, Victorian and modern, Halperin considers the impact that these leading figures had on their era, as well as the extent to which they themselves were shaped by the age in which they lived+-+66117676854334ocn025245531book19920.70Jordan, Heather BryantHow will the heart endure? : Elizabeth Bowen and the landscape of warHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcJordan's study combines historical and literary analysis and incorporates new archival research on Bowen's correspondence and on her war reports to the Ministry of Information. How Will the Heart Endure offers not only a new reading of Bowen's work, but an insightful look into the wartime publishing climate in which Bowen and her circle--which included Virginia Woolf, T. S.
