Emma by Jane Austen( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emma is the story of the eponymous Miss Woodhouse who, having lost her close companion Anne Taylor to marriage, sets out on an ill-fated career of match-making in the town of Highbury. Taking as her subject the pretty but dreary Harriet Smith, she manages to cause misunderstandings with every new tactic she employs. Though precious and spoilt, Emma is charming to all around her and so it takes her some time to learn her lesson and profit from spending less time worrying about how other people should live their lives. Emma is Austen's most technically accomplished novel, with a hidden plot, the full implications of which are only revealed by a second reading. It is here presented for the first time with a full scholarly apparatus. The text retains the spelling and the punctuation of the first edition of 1816, allowing readers to see the novel as Austen's contemporaries first encountered it. The volume provides comprehensive explanatory notes, an extensive critical introduction covering the context and publication history of the work, a chronology of Austen's life, and an authoritative textual apparatus. This edition is an indispensable resource for all scholars and readers of Austen
A companion to Victorian poetry by Richard Cronin( Book )

31 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Companion brings together specially commissioned essays by distinguished international scholars that reflect both the diversity of Victorian poetry and the variety of critical approaches that illuminate it." "The volume opens with an introductory essay on Victorian poetics by Carol Christ that offers a commanding overview of the whole period. The remaining contributions are organized into three parts: the first surveys the variety of schools and styles in Victorian poetry; in the second, the focus shifts from the form and content of the poetry to the means of its production and distribution; the final part positions Victorian verse in its contexts and explores its interactions with dominant cultural discourses."--Jacket

Romantic Victorians : English literature, 1824-1840 by Richard Cronin( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romantic Victorians offers shrewd assessments of their formal and tactical designs. This is a literary period in which literature fully entered the marketplace, and in which an ideology was constituted - civic, domestic, Christian and imperial - that was to inform British society for more than a century. These are among the issues that Cronin addresses and, in so doing, successfully restructures nineteenth-century literary studies."--Jacket
The politics of romantic poetry : in search of the pure commonwealth by Richard Cronin( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major achievement of critics of Romanticism over the past twenty years has been to transfer to the word history the glamour that once routinely attached itself to the word imagination. But all through this period, and more forcibly in recent years, this position has been challenged by others who have argued that the poems are not usefully described simply as historical documents, and that the pleasures they offer are distinct from those to be found in the examination of newspapers, acts of parliament, or economic treatises. One group of critics focuses on the historical circumstances out of which the poems were produced; the other on the language out of which the poems are made. Richard Cronin argues that the opposition between the two approaches is both false and constrictive, and he does so by taking as his premises that a poet's most effective political action is the forging of a new language, and that the political import of a poem is a function of its style. This book describes poets who speak to a fragmented society with the design of constituting their readers as citizens of, in an echo of Wordsworth's phrase, the pure commonwealth, and it takes seriously Wordsworth's further contention that such a commonwealth can be secured only by the purity of its language

Reading Victorian poetry by Richard Cronin( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reading Victorian Poetry offers close readings of poems from the Victorian era, carefully selected by the author to reflect the breadth and diversity of nineteenth-century poetry. Richard Cronin's outstanding consideration of a wide range of poets reflects the unusual diversity of Victorian poetry, which includes, amongst others, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Christina Rossetti, D.G. Rossetti, and Gerard Manley Hopkins. The book investigates key concerns of the era in which poetry was ousted by the novel from the culturally central position that it had enjoyed for centuries. The result is an important and exciting contribution to the understanding of nineteenth-century poetry, and a crucial resource for anyone interested in Victorian literature

Terrorism in southeast Asia( )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the defeat of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, U.S. attention turned to radical Islamist groups in Southeast Asia, particularly those in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore that are known or alleged to have ties to the Al Qaeda terrorist network. For more than a decade, Al Qaeda has penetrated the region by establishing local cells, training Southeast Asians in its camps in Afghanistan, and financing and cooperating with indigenous radical Islamist groups. Members of one indigenous Al Qaeda affiliate, Jemaah Islamiyah, are known to have assisted two of Al Qaeda's Sep 11, 2001 hijackers and have confessed to plotting and carrying out attacks against Western targets, including the Oct 12, 2002 bombing in Bali, Indonesia. The Bali attack signaled a shift in Jemaah Islamiyah's tactics, from targeting Western military and government installations to focusing on "softer" targets such as tourist resorts, Western businesses, and schools serving Westerners. The Aug 2003 bombing of the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Jakarta, thought to be carried out by Jemaah Islamiyah, appears to fit this pattern. Arrests in Thailand and Cambodia in the spring and summer of 2003 may indicate that the network has established and/or stepped up operations in those countries, as well as Laos and Burma. To combat the threat, the Bush Administration has pressed countries in the region to arrest suspected terrorist individuals and organizations, deployed over 1,000 troops to the southern Philippines to advise the Philippine military in their fight against the violent Abu Sayyaf Group, increased intelligence-sharing operations, restarted military-military relations with Indonesia (including restoring International Military Education and Training [IMET]), pledged hundreds of millions in aid to Indonesia and the Philippines, and has signed a multilateral counterterrorism agreement with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)
