William Faulkner : the sound and the fury ; As I lay dying by Nicolas Tredell( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now recognized as two of Faulkner's greatest novels, The Sound and the Fury (1929) and As I Lay Dying (1930) were commercial failures in the decade following their publication. By the end of the Second World War, however, the reputation of both novels had grown and Faulkner's great fictional creation, Yoknapatawpha County, had become as much a part of America as any real area of the Mississippi landscape." "This Guide explores the wealth of critical material generated by these two exceptional works of modernist fiction. From the initially mixed critical responses to the novels in the early 1930s, the Guide follows the enormous growth of interest in Faulkner's work across six decades. New writings shaped by a range of critical theories are discussed, offering the reader a clear view of the place now given to one of America's most innovative and influential novelists."--Jacket

Samuel Beckett : Waiting for Godot, Endgame by Peter Boxall( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the first performances of Waiting for Godot in the early 1950s, Samuel Beckett has become one of the most prominent authors of the twentieth century, widely regarded as the last of the great modernists. Waiting for Godot and Endgame are two of his most famous plays, and are taken by many to be defining dramatic representations of life in post-war Europe." "In the Reader's Guide, Peter Boxall traces critical responses to Waiting for Godot and Endgame from the 1950s to the present day. The guide presents the major debates that surround these works as they develop, from Martin Esslin's early appropriation of the plays as examples of the Theatre of the Absurd, to recent poststructuralist and postcolonial readings by critics such as Steven Connor, Mary Bryden and Declan Kiberd. Throughout, Boxall clarifies and contextualises critical responses to the plays, and considers the difficult relationship between Beckett and his critics. The ongoing attempt to interpret these enigmatic works not only sheds light on the plays themselves, but also helps us to understand the promise and the limits of our own critical discourses." --Book Jacket
