The adventures of Peregrine Pickle : in which are included Memoirs of a lady of quality by T Smollett( )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genius of "Peregrine Pickle" and its young author is to be found neither exclusively in the interpolated tales that its contemporary audience read avidly nor in the 'main story' that appealed to its later readers but rather in the entire canvas upon which is painted a densely populated and vividly realized fictional world. Taken in its entirety, Smollett's novel still holds the power to delight and instruct a modern audience by virtue of its author's capacious vision, his force of spirit, and his ability to capture life in words and images."--from the editors' introduction

In the late summer of 1941, as the war in Europe drags on, long-buried secrets begin to surface in the Hampshire village of Winstead, when the body of a young woman--a former conscientious objector - is found shot to death in the church cemetery. The woman's only connection to Winstead seems to be that she lately had joined a group of conscripted workers who are building a prisoner of war camp on an abandoned farm near the village. But Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Lamb, who is called in to solve the case, has his doubts. The mystery deepens when workers at the farm find the remains of a child in the foundation of the old farmhouse, and a tramp who had been squatting in the wood near the church turns up dead. Lamb soon begins to suspect that the crimes might be related to a tragic event that occurred in Winstead more than twenty years earlier--the suicide of a village woman who took her life in despair after her husband abandoned her and took their young twin sons with him. As Lamb pieces together the connections between the crimes, he draws closer to the source of evil in Winstead's past and present and, in the end, must risk his own life to uncover

Nervous acts : essays on literature, culture, and sensibility by G. S Rousseau( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1965 and 2000 George Rousseau wrote a series of landmark essays about the role of the nervous system in the rise of literature and sensibility that altered the landscape of eighteenth-century studies. Now these essays have been collected for the first time. The arguments challenge thinking about the Enlightenment and reconfigure the contexts of European sensibility. Since their original publication much criticism and scholarship has been produced that engages, adopts, and expands on Rousseau's discussions. The new introductory essay surveys this fascinating cultural profile from the ancients to the moderns, and provides a personal account of what the author's quest for the past has entailed

The sciences of homosexuality in early modern Europe by Kenneth Borris( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sciences of Homosexuality in Early Modern Europe investigates early modern scientific accounts of same-sex desires and the shapes they assumed in everyday life. It explores the significance of those representations and interpretations from around 1450 to 1750, long before the term homosexuality was coined and accrued its current range of cultural meanings." "This book illuminates many of the questions that are current today about the nature of homosexual activity and reveals how the early modern period and its scientific interpretations of same-sex relationships are fundamental to understanding the conceptual development of contemporary sexuality."--Jacket
Framing and imagining disease in cultural history( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout human history illness has been socially interpreted before its range of meanings could be understood and disseminated. Writers of diverse types have been as active in constructing these meanings as doctors, yet it is only recently that literary traditions have been recognized as a rich archive for these interpretations. These essays focus on the methodological hurdles encountered in retrieving these interpretations, called "framing" by the authors. Framing and Imagining Disease aims to explain what has been said about these interpretations and to compare their value."--pub. desc
