Graham Greene by Richard Michael Kelly ( Book )
7 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and held by 1,807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ranking among the most widely read English writers of the twentieth century, Graham Greene achieved success with novels like Brighton Rock (1938) and The End of the Affair (1951). Less attention has been devoted to his short stories, however, despite his clear mastery of that art form. In them, Greene treats the same themes--evil, irony, and ambiguity, among others--but with a greater coherence and more striking purity. The extensive travel and other personal experiences that render his novels so captivating also reflect themselves in his short fiction. One of these experiences was his treatment at the hands of bullies while he attended the Berkhamsted School, an ordeal leading Richard Kelly to view the bulk of Greene's writings as an attempt to work out the trauma of this boyhood abuse. To support his position, Kelly goes back to the uncollected stories Greene wrote as a schoolboy and then as a student at Oxford. Kelly uses these tales as a stepping stone to a thorough examination of the later short fiction, from The Basement Room (1935) to The Last Word (1990). Those readers already familiar with Greene will find Kelly's insightful links between the stories and the novels very enlightening, and novices will be able to discuss and reread Greene's works with a much greater sense of command. This, the first book-length study of Graham Greene's short fiction, will prove indispensable to anyone interested in the writer

The annotated Alice: Alice's adventures in Wonderland & Through the looking glass by Lewis Carroll ( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"First published in 1865, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland began as a story told to Alice Liddell and her two sisters on a boating trip in July 1862. The novel follows Alice down a rabbit-hole and into a world of strange and wonderful characters who constantly turn everything upside down with their mind-boggling logic, word play, and fantastic parodies. Like the first, this second edition includes Carroll's earlier story Alice's Adventures Under Ground, which allows readers to trace the revisions and to compare Carroll's own illustrations in the original with the famous John Tenniel illustrations for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This edition also includes new appendix material: George MacDonald writing on the fantastic, the eighteenth-century children's story Goody Two-Shoes, a section on film and television adaptations of Alice, and new illustrations."--Publisher's website
