The literary critics : a study of English descriptive criticism by George Watson( Book )

103 editions published between 1873 and 1986 in 5 languages and held by 1,845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an original and highly stimulating approach, George Watson traces the evolution of critical doctrines, placing particular emphasis on those critics of genius who burst open the literary commonplaces of their day with forceful new ideas, compelling a change in values. He takes us from Dryden through the writings of the Augustans, Johnson, Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Hazlitt, Matthew Arnold and Henry James, to T.S. Eliot and the controversial and intriguing contemporary scene, with its factions and debates, in an updated edition of this indispensable examination of the form

Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth( Book )

62 editions published between 1964 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1790s, with Ireland in political crisis, Maria Edgeworth made a surprisingly rebellious choice: in Castle Rackrent, her first novel, she adopted an Irish Catholic voice to narrate the decline of a family from her own Anglo-Irish class. Castle Rackrent's narrator, Thady Quirk, gives us four generations of Rackrent heirs - Sir Patrick, the dissipated spendthrift; Sir Murtagh, the litigating fiend; Sir Kit, the brutal husband and gambling absentee; and Sir Condy, the lovable and improvident dupe of Thady's own son, Jason. With this satire on Anglo-Irish landlords Edgeworth pioneered the regional novel and inspired Sir Walter Scott's Waverley (1814). She also changed the focus of conflict in Ireland from religion to class and boldly predicted the rise of the Irish Catholic bourgeoisie

Heresies and heretics : memories of the twentieth century by George Watson( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this enjoyably iconoclastic book, George Watson discusses some of the great heresies of the twentieth century, and the cultural heretics who espoused them, often with surprising results. Watson provides us with examples of 'true', original heretics, from Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, who asserted that his study of the remote past had made a radical of him, rather than any influence of modernism, to others such as Douglas Adams, whom Watson knew as an undergraduate. Watson forces us to question various long-cherished political and intellectual assumptions in his witty and conversational style. Is
