Sense and sensibility by Jane Austen( )

43 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in English and held by 1,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility. - Publisher

The heart of Midlothian by Walter Scott( Book )

21 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This novel, regarded as one of Scott's finest, opens with the Edinburgh riots of 1736. The people have been infuriated by the actions of John Porteous, Captain of the Guard; when his life is saved by the distant monarch they ignore the Queen and resolve to take their own revenge." "Closely connected with these events is the story of the novel's heroine, Jeanie Deans, a peasant girl of remarkable religious faith. Like the people of Edinburgh she refuses to accept a legal decision, in this case against her sister Effie, condemned under a harsh law of child-murder. The novel follows Jeanie's prodigious determination to save her sister's life. At the centre of both narratives is Edinburgh's forbidding prison, the Tolbooth, known by all as the Heart of Midlothian."--Jacket

Romanticism's debatable lands by Claire Lamont( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book uses the theme of 'debatable lands', to explore aspects of writing in the Romantic period.

These debates are pursued in a collection of essays grouped under the headings such as 'Britain and Ireland'
History and the novel( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles of the Canongate by Walter Scott( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chronicles of the Canongate is unique among Scott's works as it is his only collection of shorter fiction. It contains his best-known tales, 'The Highland Widow' and 'The Two Drovers', and a third, less well known but of startling originality, 'The Surgeon's Daughter'. The three are set within the framing narrative of Chrystal Croftangry, an old bankrupt with pretensions to literature, who must inevitably be seen as a portrait of the artist facing up to his own insolvency in 1826." "Tales in a framework have a long ancestry in European and Oriental literature, and in Chronicles of the Canongate Scott adapts the genre with consummate skill. Each of the stories and Croftangry's narrative may be read independently, but together they constitute a themed work in which the narrator treats of the cultural conflicts in the new Britain and its growing empire in the thirty years from 1756"--Jacket
