Fallen women in the nineteenth-century novel by Tom Winnifrith( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nineteenth-century sexual conduct was not all that different from its twentieth-century equivalent, but the conventions under which this conduct was recounted were very different. Fallen Women in the Nineteenth-Century Novel examines the way in which the great nineteenth-century novelists managed to say something new and true and important about sexual behaviour in spite of, or perhaps because of, rules which dictated that the recording of this behaviour should combine the utmost discretion and deep disapproval. Austen, Bronte, Eliot, Thackeray, Dickens and Hardy had no great sympathy with this degree of discretion or disapproval. They fought to reveal the truth as seen in the events of their own lives. On the surface their fallen heroines like Hetty Sorrel or Little Emily or Tess Durbeyfield seem to suffer the conventional cruel fate of the erring female, death or Australia or both. Tom Winnifrith examines ways in which the great novelists continued, unlike their inferior contemporaries, to portray the complexities underlying the simple division of women into angels and whores

Perspectives on Albania( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nine experts on Albanian history have collaborated on this book which aims to penetrate some of the mysteries which have prevented the story of Europe's least known nation from being better known. Starting with Professor Harding's account of prehistoric Albania and concluding with Mr. Bland's favorable account of Albania after World War II, dominated by a strictly orthodox Communist regime, these nine chapters give fresh and often controversial insights into the history of a people that have been generally dominated by foreign invaders, but have still managed to retain their language and identity. There are chapters on Albania in prehistoric, Classical, Byzantine and Turkish times, together with more specialized chapters on the Norman and Venetian presence in Albania, the code of honor practiced by the Albanians of the diaspora and the life and times of the great Albanian patriot Qemal Bey Vlora. The two concluding chapters on modern Albanian history before and after the World War II show Albanian history from two very different points of view. The political situation in Albania is uncertain at the present time, but this book endeavors to explain, if not to resolve, some of the uncertainties of the past."--BOOK JACKET
