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."--BOOK JACKET+-+K4367668753836ocn008708958book19820.70Tredell, NicolasThe novels of Colin WilsonCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+55375743853725ocn214306150book20080.59Edwards, Justin DPostcolonial literatureHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc"This Guide analyses the criticism of English-language literature from the major regions of the postcolonial world.

Snow was a massive and contentious presence in the twentieth century. Readers relished his novels but critics condemned them; his lectures crystallized crucial issues but provoked fierce attacks; and the two phrases he coined, 'corridors of power' and 'the two cultures', passed into the English language and spread round the world. But since his death in 1980 the full range of his writing has received little attention. This is the first twenty first century book to survey all Snow's novels and his major nonfiction in a clear, lively, informed and sympathetic way. It explores his early genre fiction, his 'Strangers and Brothers' series and his last novels; examines "The Two Cultures" and "Science and Government" and the controversies they continue to arouse; considers his biographical accounts of leading authors, scientists and statesmen such as Trollope, Einstein and Churchill; and affirms the continued importance of his work to the world today1916ocn048678784book20020.73Cinemas of the mind : a critical history of film theoryHistory+-+19081959361886ocn052722019book20000.53Boxall, PeterSamuel Beckett : Waiting for Godot, EndgameCriticism, interpretation, etc"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+-+77351959361829ocn064314103book20060.53Tredell, NicolasMacbethThis guide provides a critical survey of the rich range of responses to 'Macbeth', as well as the key debates and developments from the 17th century to the present day.
