The Newcomes, memoirs of a most respectable family by William Makepeace Thackeray( Book )

78 editions published between 1853 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel tells the story of Colonel Thomas Newcome and his son, Clive. Colonel Newcome is a good man of high moral character, and Clive has studied extensively and traveled abroad in hopes of becoming a great painter, an occupation that his family (especially his cousin Barnes) looks down upon. After working with the military in India for several years, Colonel Newcome returns with Clive to his home and family in England. At a welcoming party, Clive meets his cousin and friend from childhood, Ethel, and immediately falls in love. The colonel returns to India some years later, leaving Clive to travel Europe, pursue his dream and hope to have a relationship with Ethel. While The Newcomes is not one of Thackeray's most popular works, it has captivated critics since its publication. Tackling themes of religion (especially Methodism) and class in Victorian England, the novel was also the first to use the word "capitalism" as a reference to the economic system we know today

The battle of life : a love story by Charles Dickens( Book )

10 editions published between 1846 and 1914 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Battle of Life: A Love Story is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in 1846. It is the fourth of his five "Christmas Books", preceded by A Christmas Carol (1843), The Chimes (1844), The Cricket on the Hearth (1845) and followed by The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain (1848). The setting is an English village that stands on the site of an historic battle. Some characters refer to the battle as a metaphor for the struggles of life, hence the title. The Battle of Life is the only one of the five Christmas Books that has no supernatural or explicitly religious elements. The story bears some resemblance to The Cricket on the Hearth in two respects: it has a non-urban setting, and it is resolved with a romantic twist. It is even less of a social novel than is Cricket. As is typical with Dickens, the ending is a happy one. Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular. Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age. His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, is one of the most influential works ever written, and it remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. Set in London and Paris, his 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, is the best selling novel of all time. His creative genius has been praised by fellow writers - from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G.K. Chesterton - for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism.
