Combining a biographical approach with close reading of the novels, Donald Hawes offers an illuminating portrait of Dickens as a writer and insight into his life and times. This book gives readers and students a short, lively but sophisticated introduction to Dickens's work and the personal and social context in which it was written

The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical sources on major figures in literature. Each volume presents contemporary responses to a writer's work, enabling students and researchers to read for themselves, for example, comments on early performances of Shakespeare's plays, or reactions to the first publication of Jane Austen's novels. The carefully selected sources range from landmark essays in the history of criticism to journalism and contemporary opinion, and little published documentary material such as letters and diaries. Significant pieces of criticism from later periods are also included, in order to demonstrate the fluctuations in an author's reputation. Each volume contains an introduction to the writer's published works, a selected bibliography, and an index of works, authors and subjects. The Collected Critical Heritage set will be available as a set of 68 volumes and the series will also be available in mini sets selected by period (in slipcase boxes) and as individual volumes

The history of Pendennis. His fortunes and misfortunes, his friends and his greatest enemy by William Makepeace Thackeray( Book )

16 editions published between 1917 and 1987 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set mainly in London's bohemian and literary underworld, Pendennis (1848-50) is the funny and uninhibited story of Arthur Pendennis. Son of a selfless widow, he moves from one disastrous romantic entanglement to another. After running up bills at university and studying to become a lawyer, he drifts into a literary career, meeting a host of second-rate journalists and circling the corrupt fringes of the upper classes. Pendennis is one of the earliest and greatest of the Victorian Bildungsromanen - introspective novels chronicling the author's growth to maturity under a thin veil of fiction. On coming across Pendennis in later life, Thackeray was heard to mutter: 'It is very like. Yes, it is very like.' Born into the upper classes, Thackeray had lost his patrimony on the gambling tables and had married imprudently. He had slaved for ten years in London's literary bohemia, and it was here that he met the men who inspired many of his characters. In his introduction John Sutherland considers the parallels between Thackeray's life and that of Pendennis, and examines the changes taking place in Victorian England throughout the years of the novel, particularly during the revolutionary 1840s

Villette by Charlotte Brontë( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With neither friends nor family, Lucy Snowe sets sail from England to find employment in a girls' boarding school in the small town of Villette. There she struggles to retain her self-possession in the face of unruly pupils, an initially suspicious headmaster, and her own complex feelings, first for the school's English doctor and then for the dictatorial professor, Paul Emmanuel. Charlotte Brontë's last and most autobiographical novel is a powerfully moving study of isolation and the pain of unrequited love, narrated by a heroine determined to preserve an independent spirit in the face of adverse circumstances
