The Oxford book of death by D. J Enright( Book )

33 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 1,981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A book of death might seem a strange and dubious venture. A book for no one? Or, since the subject, the editor suggests, is 'of exceptionally common concern' - a book for everyone?

Shakespeare and the students by D. J Enright( Book )

18 editions published between 1970 and 1977 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Departing from the tendency to dwell extensively on the symbolism in Shakespeare's plays and to see the works as metaphysical formulations, studies in this book focus on his work as "plays about people"--Their reactions as real people to possible situations. Four plays are examined, scene by scene: (1) "King Lear" and the Just Gods; (2) "Antony and Cleopratra": Nobody is Perfect; (3) "Macbeth" and the Henpecked Hero; and (4) "The Winter's Tale": More Tragedy than Comedy, more Realism than Romance. Both what the characters say and their tones of voice are analyzed. (Jmc)

The Oxford book of the supernatural( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the eerie visitation of Scrooge by Marley's ghost, to the three witches brewing evil on the heath in Macbeth, to the deadly lust for blood of Bram Stoker's Dracula, we have always been fascinated by things that go "bump in the night." The supernatural has chilled our hearts and has fired our imaginations, and it has fueled the writings of our greatest authors, from Odysseus's journey to the underworld in Homer, to Faust's bargain with Mephistopheles in Goethe. The Oxford Book of the Supernatural compiles some of the very best writings on this fearsome subject, drawing from both ancient and modern, from East and West, and from Christian, Islamic, and Buddhist traditions

In search of lost time by Marcel Proust( Book )

22 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Search of Lost Time (French: À la recherche du temps perdu)--previously also translated as Remembrance of Things Past, is a novel in seven volumes, written by Marcel Proust (1871-1922). It is considered to be his most prominent work, known both for its length and its theme of involuntary memory, the most famous example being the "episode of the madeleine" which occurs early in the first volume. It gained fame in English in translations by C. K. Scott Moncrieff and Terence Kilmartin as Remembrance of Things Past, but the title In Search of Lost Time, a literal rendering of the French, has gained usage since D. J. Enright adopted it for his revised translation published in 1992
