Dickens and religion by Dennis Walder( Book )

15 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of understanding Dickens's religion to obtain a full appreciation of his achievement has long been admitted; but this is the first critical study of the interaction between Dickens's religious beliefs and his creative imagination throughout his career. The novelist's religious beliefs are a pervasive and deeply felt presence in his works even if they are not always clearly thought out or expressed. Too discreet and humane to be as explicit, or as dull, as most of the professedly religious novelists of his time, Dickens nevertheless suggests in his own way a liberal Protestant be

The realist novel by Dennis Walder( Book )

32 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studying "genre" is perhaps one of the most familiar ways of approaching literary texts, and the realist novel is one of the most distinct genres of all. The contributors to this volume look at two aspects of genre, the formal and historical, and show how writers such as Jane Austen and Charles Dickens used the realist novel to tell profoundly moral tales in a popular way. The contributors also examine how some writers, such as Mary Shelley, challenged the genre's "mainstream" characteristics to lasting effect. Among the texts closely studied are: "Pride and Prejudice", "Great Expectations", "Fathers and Sons" and "Frankenstein". A selection of key critical texts is included, and these help to develop the reader's understanding of the issues raised in context. The emphasis throughout is upon practice not theory, and each chapter offers exercises in reading and studying literature

Postcolonial nostalgias : writing, representation and memory by Dennis Walder( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers an original and informed critique of a widespread yet often misunderstood condition -- nostalgia, a pervasive human emotion connecting people across national and historical as well as personal boundaries. Often seen as merely escapist, nostalgia also offers solace and self-understanding for those displaced by the larger movements of our time. Walder analyses the writings of some of those entangled in the aftermath of empire, tracing the hidden connections underlying their yearnings for a common identity and a homeland, and their struggles to recover their histories. Through a series of comparative reflections upon the representation in literary and related cultural forms of memory, he shows how admitting the past into the present through nostalgia enables former colonial or diasporic subjects to gain a deeper understanding of the networks of power within which they are caught in the modern world and beyond which it may yet be possible to move. Considering authors as varied as V.S Naipaul, J.G. Ballard, Doris Lessing, W.G. Sebald, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, as well as versions of 'Bushman' song, Walder pursues the often wayward, ambiguous paths of nostalgia as it has been represented beyond, but also within, Europe, so as to identify some of those processes of communal and individual experience that constitute the present and, by implication, the future."--Provided by publisher
